As I'm sitting here tying up some dries for the wife's boss I was wondering if anyone has hosted a dry fly swap for trout. I figure the June 1st opener isn't really all that far off. So who's up for one?

If we can get one going I'm in for an Improved Sofa Pilla. So how 'bout it folks who's in?

I'm thinking of a closing date of May 15th so that gives everyone time to copy flies for June opener. I'll leave this invite open till the 22nd 7:00 PM.

Oops forgot...12 tyers is the limit!!!!

This is the official list:

Myself : Improved Sofa Pilla
Mike D : Rubber legged Stimulator
Flyn'dutchman : Parachute Mayfly
Ron : BWO
Willie : Madam X
Icanfly : Sparkle Caddis
D3Smartie : Royal Coachman
Cmtundra : Blonde Wulff

That makes 8 tyers so 8 flies each. I think I'm going to throw some extra in there for y'all. I want everybodies flies in my hand by 15 May 05 and I'll send them out 16 May. If I get them all earlier then we'll have a presents in the mail sooner...hint, hint...LOL

Have fun,
I'm in. Parachute mayfly with snowshoe rabbit foot hair post. These guys take a lickin' and keep on catchn'. Lets limit it to 12 though. Takes too long to tie more and fishn' is under way for me. :thumb: :thumb:

I'm in. Not sure what I'll tie yet, but I need to have them mailed by the end of the month so I can meet other commitments. Is that okay with you Scott?

I'm having trouble deciding between maybe a royal wulff, a caddis emerger type (x-caddis or sparkle caddis), or a calibeatis emerger. Think you guys can help me decide? :confused: I'd have done a stonefly of somekind but it seems like there are a few of those already.
