    Ok so ive been having a ton of fun and great success tying and fishing these flies. So..Id like to host a swap. I would like to do a total of 11 people so each person gets 10 flies. These flies are outstanding when fished as the anchor. Usually I use a tungsten bead for this reason.90% of the time I hook the fish firmly in the nose. Cant beat that! Because of the rules most of the participants will need to go to their local fly shop or order online. If we dont get enough people to contribute we may just make it 2 flies per person so if only a handful tie we will still trade a good amount of flies. Heres the rules.

    - Flies must be tied on competition barbless jig hooks
    -Flies must be tied with tungsten beads. Preferably slotted but depending on the bead some still work
    -Tier must include self addressed envelope and prepaid postage. No cash please.
    - Im thinking June 1st will be the due date for the flies. This gives people a chance to aquire materials.

    Here is a couple pictures of a jigged nymph as an example

    There are quite a few shops that carry all items. They are fairly easy to track down.

    Yes, I would like in Thomas. Going to order some hooks anyway, so this is a good excuse to not wait!
