    I'm in, as long as you don't mind a canuck in your swap.
    I've never done a swap before, so this will be interesting.
    Should these flys be barbless?

    I thought I replied last night. I'd like to take a crack at an intruder pattern. I'm blown away by those that I received in the articulated steel swap a short while back. I stocked up on ostrich herl in a few excellent colors. Let me know if I'm in!

    How many flies would you have to tie and when would they need to be done by? I would probably be down to tie a flesh fly or flesh theif.

    Alright guys, I'm definately in. I am willing to tie my special flesh fly, a flesh theif (A variation of a sculpin), or my own version of mouse pattern (Mine is very different than Mumbles and very effective). Let me know which flies you guys would prefer to have...

    aces- i'll throw my vote for the sculpin, cuz i don't catch steel on mice!

    Thanks for response Jergens...count me in on the scuplin!!!

    you can return the favor, should i tie a bright fly or a dark fly?

    Haha, hit us with the dark fly...I perfer using natural colors such as black and olive for steelies when the rivers aren't in great shape which seems to be just about every weekend in the winter months (jk I hope not). But it's up to you Jergens...you're the one tying it and I would like to know everyone else's opinion as well...

    Thanks,
    Aces

    Would love to see the mouse pattern, but I vote for the sculpin as well!

    Go dark Joe! Big and dirty! Really whatever you want, got to have a variety in the fly box...
