    I'm new to tying but tie some at least 3-4 days per week and am improving. I would love to take part in a face-face swap with a couple patterns that I tie fairly well.

    creating face to face community is the theme

    tie 5 of your favorite flies
    then tie 5 of your next favorite
    for a total of 10 flies
    you will swap someone for 5 of theirs
    and somebody else 5 of theirs

    your in

    not really and you can so everyone doesn't trade woolbuggers and royal coachmen....although from the looks of the last salon that might be a pretty good swap
    only Larrys would likley be size 22s

    are you in ?

    I'm game contingent on the yet to develop details. If we get enough tyers I'll bow out of the tying and just come for the socializing!

    we will never have too many tiers as you are swapping two sets of 5 flies with 2 other people
    as long as we have even numbers it can keep going
    if we have odd numbers I am tying 2 more sets of 5 so we can keep going

    so feel free to jump in or just come socialize

    Alright, count me in if the timing works. I like Friday nights and the idea of meeting in Seattle works for me.

    I'm a go for either of those times. Seattle area also works well for me.

    Saturday's are for fishing ;) If it is a Friday night in the greater Seattle area, I'm in for sure.

    By the time the swap hits, it will be dark by 4:30 so an afternoon/evening swap would allow people to fish all day before it.
