Well, let the swapping begin for 2004. It's time for us fly-tyers to start thinking spring. The spring run is but a couple monthes from beginning. Anybody intrested in a swap yet? 12 tyers, to have ther flies in by sometime around the middle of March (due date TBD as we get closer). Sound good?

Only stipulation I'd like to add is to descourage the entery of egg patterns, unless you have something truely new and/or earth-shattering to share. Who's in?

I'm in. I'll be tying Jeff's Pheasant Tail Cruiser Nymph.
As long as we get the dirty dozen signed up soon, it shouldn't take long to tie the flies up. Would it makes sense to push up the due date to early March? May want to hit the river with the samples mid-March, weather permitting. Just wondering ......

Kirk, I wish I could. I'm in 2 swaps right now.

If I get one of them done and there's still room for me Tuesday, I might join in.

I can always just tie you couple :)
BTW, a few of us are heading for Tippy the 1st and 2nd.
