    15/22 done. I'm doing two general nymph patterns that have been very good for me lately.

    Just logged in to confirm that we only are required to tie one pattern for this swap. Its nice that some members are offering to tie up two patterns, but I doubt that I will do a second. If I did, it would be like a really skinny "skinny minnie.":D

    gotta get back to the fumbling.

    I think some are tying 2 patterns of 11 flies each to pass out instead of 22 flies of 1 pattern. Same number of flies, just more variety.

    If only I had confidence that those patterns would work in still waters. Bummer I have never seen them fished effectively on a lake before with great success. Dude, that is one nice shot.

    Oh, OK. Got it. I re-read Ira's original post. Now I think I will tie two patterns, instead of two of the NSC. I had misunderstood that part of the deal. Don't worry, it won't be just a skinny skinny minnie (which is just some black thread for a body and one or two wraps of soft hackle), but will be something a little fatter.

    Flies shipped. Jesus Fedex is expensive. Next time I'll be using a different shipping method
