    Tell you what - since we are going to have quite a few streamer patterns, I can tie mine of the size 14 hooks (I have a gazillion of them) to mix it up a bit - or do you guys want larger?

    So we are in for 20 bugs a piece correct? Since I'm on the Galloup kick lately, I'll kick in either Zoo Cougars, Butt Monkeys, Sex Dungeons, Kiwi Muddlers, and/or big fleshy looking stuff that should show up in the ass-gravy soup we'll all be fishing on the western rivers...should all work well also in the Midwest and back east on the freshwater both for trout and warmwater uglies. Most in size 4, tied either on short shank or with stingers. When and where do we send them?

    Well, Yeti set a deadline of 5pm tomorrow - so I assume we'll have the count by then. So are we doing 2 flies per person? So, if 10 people, then we contribute 20 flies?

    Unless... I do have some spankin' new Salomon S912 Ti's (I skied on them two HALF days is all) with wide brakes (they fit up to like 100mm I think), a size large North Face Mountain Light shell (Gore-Tex) and some other gear I would be willing to trade...

    Update: stand up and be counted by 5pm Pacific time tonight!

    Who's in:

    1. Schwerty
    2. 72twenty
    3. fez
    4. iskipowder21
    5. hartzejr
    6. G.Gordon Liddy
    7. Yeti
    8. Andy B
    9. L8APX
    10. Adipose
    11. Jimmy Page
    12. Lumpy
    13. Kokomas

    Have I missed anyone? If so, it's not exclusivity, but ign'ance on my part. Speak up!

    The group consensus seems to be an open category swap, although a lot of us will be tying streamers, which is great.

    I'll PM my address to the list tomorrow morning. Please get them to me by May 28. Within a week of receiving them all, I'll photograph them (for posterity and posting), package, and turn them back out to you all.

    Any suggestions on how to handle postage? If it's a buck each, I can eat those costs, but I'm open to ideas.

    i bet it will be more than a buck for shipping, plus you will need at least a sixer for the divide and package process. we should put in a couple bucks each to cover postage and get you the required liquid supplies.

    Good idea.

    I'm just going to put them on a piece of cardboard then in an envelope to send, does that work?

    I would love to be a part of this, but maybe next time when it is focused on what I know works where I fish. No offense, but I really don't need any buggers, sjw's, salt flies, etc. I keep my flies pretty focused. If we ever have, for example, a caddis or bwo emerger swap, I'll be all over it. Really glad to see this getting going though.

    just make sure you check the weight. if you use bead heads or lead wraps, make sure you have enough postage.

    I'm just going to take it in to the PO and mail it from the counter, so they can weigh it.

    I went through the postage thing a couple times when I was the organizer of the "Change for a Nickel?" stickers. I ended up on the short end of things. So, let's make sure Yeti gets more than enough in postage and can be good and drunk when he's licking and stuffing.............envelopes.

    And so it begins... I'm ready to start on my first fly...



    Is 20 flies each going to be enough? How will that divide? Don't we have like 14 or 15 participants?

    Heh - I JUST NOW cleaned it up so that I could get organized to start tying tonight. It was a total mess before.

    Also, I might add that my wife gave me a very nice, sparkled purple Caboodle to keep some of my stuff in. What you can't see is the complete mess on the floor under the bench.
