    Lets make it official.
    Foam fly swap with up to 12 tiers doing 2 flies each(22 flies).They need to have foam in there some where.Lets have a due date of April 15 (tax day).All normal swap rules apply.I will send out address when it gets close to time.

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

    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.

    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.
