Ok Boys and Girls. Looks like we are at the eight tyer mark so far. That is great. Looks like we have some new talent as well as a mix of old talent. I'm looking forward to getting under way once we hit the 12 man mark. So keep poking your friends.

Thanks guys,
The Tug Is The Drug,

totally new to the group, but I'd like in on the fly swap. I haven't read all the posts yet to see what flies are not spoken for, but I will get through the list and come up with one to add...

its a great idea... have seen it work with other groups... but it does take some work and time on the part of the leader....This would be my first time, so I'd rather be a follower rather than a leader, but would consider leading on a subsequent swap...

I'd be up for some tying as well. Count me if it gets going again.

i have only been on one swap, and how it worked then, the leader picked a group of 12 fly tyers. we each choose a fly to tie and announced it
here so that the others would know which fly had been picked so as not to duplicate. we would each tie the fly and added one extra to donate to
a cause, such as troutfest or some group that could use them. we mailed them to the leader of the swap, in turn the tyer would send a self addressed
envelope so that the other flies would be mailed back to each and everyone particapating in the swap.

We did have a good time with the swap. I hope everyone that participated enjoyed it as well. I still have some of the flies from the last time.

At this stage, I think we need someone to take point and get this year's fly swap started.

Any takers?
