    No idea what I'm tying. Do people want trout flies, SRC flies, steelhead flies, other contraptions. Doesn't matter to me.

    I'm a trout only guy but can always flip them to a friend if I get steelhead flies.

    I'm down to try a fly swap, never done one before but it sounds fun, is there a theme at all, or just my personal favorites?

    look forward to meeting you all.

    I've got 3/5 complete. I tie a bunch for fishing...use them, and if they end up working, I tie a couple pretty ones.

    So far you guys have 2 beach flies, and one steelhead pattern. You will probably be getting more of the latter.

    I think I may have been snubbed and may have to be a gate crasher... ;)

    No gates to crash everyone’s welcome
    Given I just got location, date, and time
    there were a few people I was unclear were committing until they knew
    You are most definitely in and looking forward to your ties! and meeting you in person

    Given we are swaping one set of five with one person and one set with another we can add as many tyiers as want to come as long as we have an even number
    if we have an odd number I will ties extras so it still works .....

    Are we tying two sets of five different flies, or is each set supposed to be five of the same pattern?

    Now I'm confused but that's not all that difficult...

    I was planning on tying two sets of five different flies so that someone might find at least one pattern they like.:rolleyes:
