    If you can give about a month to finish, I'm some fishing to get in this month.
    I've got a spider pattern I can tie up that works great on warm water fish.

    I was thinking a month or two,most patterns are summer patterns anyway

    IN with two hoppers. Same essential pattern, but different color combos. I'll layer up my three sheets of foam, spread the adhesive and get it drying as soon as the site goes down!

    I'm pretty new to tying and I'm not sure exactly how the swap works, but I'd like to get in on it. I've got a Skating October Caddis in mind.

    4 spots left...
  12. I wanna do it. Foam trout flies, patterns as yet undetermined. Maybe a foam-bodied caddis and a hopper.

    I'm ending up taking an old faithful black ant pattern and turning into a foam pattern.
    The old black ant sank after awhile; thus at a certain lake with huge fish the bite would stop.
    I think this new, better floating version might be deadly...we'll see.
    I'm about half way through with my ties.

    That sounds good steeli.You guys might want to send your stuff in a bigger container than usual.some of these flies i could see being quite big.I know mine are going to be.
