    I can see I'm in a very worthy set of tiers, I hope my ties will be up to the task,
    have some new materials coming by snail mail that I couldn't get locally. Is it one scotch per fly until Jan. 15 or two:clown:

    Hey Don. Glad to be a part of the swap. Just to make sure are we tying one or two patterns. Im assuming one. I will be tying an original mostly darker hairwing pattern that I like to use in the mornings and evenings and also as a follow up fly. Cant wait to see what the rest of you come up with. Kevin

    Right, we are tying one pattern. Take your pick, 12 flies.

    I am working on some ideas with UV materials and ordered some special stuff myself.

    Your right, a great group of tiers. I can't wait to see what we come up with.

    If you guys don't mind some steelhead flies tied in 80 degree weather with tarpon instead of steelhead around I would like to give this a try. It will be my first foray into this swap deal so I may need some advice. Do all the flies have to be exactly the same? Might remind me too much of my commercial tying days. Bill

    It;s fine with me.

    12 Flies the same, not on the scale of commercial tying. If they aren't all exactly the same, no worries!

    If you guys don't mind I would very much enjoy being a part of this. For me it would be a great vicarious steelhead fix. Lord knows I need one. :beathead: Bill

    Do folks usually provide a hook if they tie a tube fly for a swap?
