Anyone interested in doing a swap? Basically, anything you want to contribute, as long as it can be fished with an UL rod.

I'm thinking due date will be the end of August.

In the process of moving, otherwise I would be all over this. How many participants are you going to allow in?

Say there are 12 people signed up for the swap, you tie up 12 of the same flies, include a self addressed envelope and your flies in altoids tin or similar, and mail them to the swap master. Once he receives all the flies from all tiers, he breaks them down one of every fly to all the tiers. And mails them back in your self addressed envelope. Sometimes everyone tie an extra,the extra set gets actioned off to raise funds for the forum, donated to project healing waters, reel recovery, casting for recovery, or a similar type program. I've seen them go either way. With different tymes, ul castable in this case, hopper, caddis, LaFontane(spelling) dries, streamers etc....

I'm in if you will have me. I'll have them tied up and ready to go by Friday the 11th. #10 or #12 Briminator or Gunslinger. Both are a good multi species pattern that can be cast easily with a 0-3wt rod.
