    I think I'll tie up some of Keen's Magic Series, probably the Sky version.

    Done with my flies. (Got pretty bored today!)

    Hey Arthur, we should go swing some flies soon, and I'll hand my flies over to you. Let me know.

    Ben, you're gonna have to send me that pattern recipe. I'm going to have to tie some of those in this color or that color. Interesting multicolor dubbing too, what is it?

    the picture doesn't give the fly justice, and i think i used the wrong color for the head, definitely not one I'm using for the swap.

    and i guess the magic number is 10. no need to tie 12 flies unless you really want to... so get tying guys and try to post some pics of your flies.

    Just wondering, is the swap closed at 10 people or not? I am wondering if I can send my flies in. Also I need an address. If I dont want one of my own back it is 9 flies I send in correct?

    Thanks to you both. I have neither of those materials in my collection...I'll have to add it to the list. I like that mixed coloration. (Great color blending has worked for me in the past...Steve, Islander's Camo Carey Special, great color blending, should be illegal!)
