    If you don't mind a submission from a mediocre (at best) tier, I'll throw my hat into the ring. No idea what I will tie, but I'll come up with something.

    OK Pat. You are in. Now, I don't know if we should close this or keep it open up to 12 spaces. I'll assume at this point everyone could do 12 possibly. We have until June 2.

    With 5 of us from as far away as McKinleyville, CA and Idaho Falls tells me 2 things. First a face to face swap would be difficult for some of us. Second, I would love to meet the 5 and learn what they have to teach me about fishing northern California, eastern Washington and Idaho. I would still like to see a face to face for those that can make it and the others can snail mail their flies. We can bend an elbow in their honor.

    If there's room I'd love to join. I've just started playing with foam and think this would be a great encouragement.

    I thought I had a post here earlier asking for some clarification on beetles. Floating beetles only or are water boatmen eligible. My "back up plan" is a floating beetle that works good over here.

    I'm all tied up and can probably ship next week, so I need an address. There are 13 flies in there, I'm calling them "scout bugs" after my daughter. The swapmeister should keep the extras!
