I'm starting a swap focused on pike flies. Basic swap rules apply - tie a fly for each participant except yourself, toe tag each fly and send with return postage paid envelope. I'm hoping for 12 participants. Due date of the flies would be March 31st.

I've never fished for pike. We don't have them here in Texas. However I am game...I'll have to see which pattern to tie.

We still have 3 open spots does everyone want to tie 12 and get a couple random repeats or drop the number of flies to 9?
