It's the time of year and I'm ready to start seriously rigging up for midging. Last year's swap was great and I'm excited to host another. Looking for two patterns each with 8 other tiers. I've bought the the recent book "Modern Midges" an excellent resource and am having fun testing different ideas and variations. Pupa, Larva, Emerger, it doesn't matter. As with other swaps, always fun seeing real proven patterns that fish well.
8 tiers, 2 patterns each and Due by March 13th (a coincidental swapmeister Birthday).
I'll tie some type of red-butt variation and another. All flies will be photo'd, so include your toe tag descriptions. Packages will hit the mail back to you soon..waiting on one package postmarked on 13th Shall hit mail 16th, not later than 17th..final; please include the return postage. (If all are receivedl before the deadline, they'll of course be mailed earlier...)

Check back here for updates:

8 tiers 2 patterns equals 14 flies. This assumes that you don't need to send flies back to the original owner that are tied by the original owner. If that's too hard to keep track of then I'll send my 16 and you can send two of my own flies back to me.

I'm in. Most likely my favorite black and red and my chromie, but I might get up the gumption to tie my variation of Deiferts liquid lace pattern.

This swap is still open for one more! Check status at opening thread.
I've got my patterns for the swap completed.
Responding to your question, there'd actually be nine tiers including myself. Didn't think the need to mail back your own patterns since you know what they are; thus the eight flies/2 each.
I've got a new camera that takes nice up close photos; so will post all the different patterns for the swap once received.
How's the patterns coming along?

Hey Kelvin, I'm adding you to the list. Sorry Sean you couldn't be in, but that's life sometimes.
You should have got the mailing information from me...
How's everyone else doing with bug tying?
