    i would be interested as long as we are not looking for overly creative flies.  I can do some of my weighted bead headed egg patterns.

    i'm game, put me down for either crystal spawn "meth" or scrambled eggs sucker spawn.... whichever gives a little more variety to the mix, just tell me which one and how many.

    Thanks,

    I'm game. I'm not sure what I'll tie yet, but let me know how many you need and when.

    Some people are like Slinkies...not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    So are we all just tying up egg patterns or what? How many do we need to tie? Are we still doing this or has it died?

    I can tie whatever, I suggested scrambled eggs, crystal (meth) spawn, and I could even do some buggers. All I need is a decision and an address.

    Thanks,

    if we don't get something going by monday, I will take it over and get it arranged. Could everyone post what they are planning on tying so we can get an overall idea of what we are going to end up with so that we can have a nice assortment of flies for everyone. I am going to make some crystal spawn. Post what your making, don't worry if your not the worlds greatest fly tyer..... tie something that you are comfortable with, have on hand, and lastly what you like to fish with! Viking kid, I'm not trying to step on any toes, just keeping the ball rolling after all they are in the tribs! Thanks, gents!

    If you'll check his posts that is all he comes on here for is to start fly swaps.
    He blew off the last one he tried to start.

    If you guys want, I'll take it over and run the swap. I was looking to run one soon anyway. Let me know who all is in (I'm not using his list). Let's say we're all tying simple steelhead flies (ie. eggs, buggers, spawn, etc.) If someone WANTS to tie up some elaborate fly that's fine, but don't expect everyone to be tying them. I was in a swap once where someone tied up some really nice traditional salmon flies and threw a fit because everyone else was tying egg/ spawn patterns. Once I get the list, we'll come up with a due date and move this along.

    I've been tying buggers for the one fly, so I don't want to do anymore of those. Maybe I'll tie up a simple rabbit strip streamer that I've had some success on in the past.

    Killdeer - Streamer
    Flash - Bugger
    jah1317 - Crystal Meth
    Bigbear - Milty eggs
    (friend from work) - Sucker Spawn or Nymph

    I'll give it a couple more days to see how many more we can get to join. I'd like to say the flies are due in around the Mid of Oct.
