Definitely fit in Steve. I've seen yours from last year and they were great.

 

Great now I have a reason to tie some up Spey flies !!!!

Spey flies are my favorite flies out there. I can't tie them myself that look decent but of all the fly styles out there the "swooping" looks of spey flies please my eye the most.

I would not miss this ever.

I am in as well Vic.

I will tie a box with freshwater bugs with at least 12 of them.

 

I am in to receiving anything in return but would be most interested in a pan fish or bass selection as they are on my to do list this year.

 

I would be pumped with spey flies as well.

Looking good. Keep 'em coming. Let's have a great swap this year. I already have bonuses sent in to share with everyone. Some generous people have sent gifts to spread. Nothing fancy but all good stuff I have to be careful not to let slide into my personal pile.

What’s the deadline for the join time?...if it’s mentioned in your 1st post I missed it and I read it many times.
The reason I ask is because I’m going to send in some stocking stuffers in separately and I need to know if it’s 20 people or 30.
???

Yeah I caught that part...so no cut off entry date then?
I’m just watching the entries and is going to be 10 or 30?
So someone could jump in on Nov 16 and overnight them to and be in?
