    I'm looking to start a chironomid swap. I'm thinking 12 people with a deadline of February 14th. Please post to this thread if you want in. I will take your name down. Please post the pattern you would like to do. Deadline for name submission will be Jan 31st. I can be swapmeister. Please read the thread "How a fly swap works" so there is no confusion. Once we reach the amount of names we want then I will give my address so we can make it happen.

    So who's in?

    I am not O.C. but my chronies are finished. It's been kinda cold, wet and windy over here so indoor fishing is the best. Need to toe tag and they are ready.

    Before I start, I just want to make sure that I understand this one. So 12 tiers one pattern but we should only have to tie 11 (I don't need you to send me my own fly back to me)? Is this correct?

    Yes correct. Id like to have everyone finished by the end of the month but dont wait that long if you are finished. Send them my way with postage enclosed and i will notify everyone when they come in and get them out immediately after I receive the whole lot. Again make sure you read the instructional thread if this is your first swap. Here is my address.
