Now that Christmas is out of way and New Year's revelry about to come down on us let's talk about the monthly swap.
FIRST... I'd like to thank those who stuck with it this past year and those who filled as needed. Right now I have a couple of complete sets for a few months and set of nymphs from Border Collies to go out. There were a few times in there people missed a month and caught up and this old mind doesn't handle things as well as I used to so if anyone missed a whole month of any group let me know and I should be able to fill it out. I have this November flies ready to go and one set short but nice bunch to go out. If you look in the lower right of the 4th picture you'll see this months flies. So here is the synopsis of our month's of tying with the exception of the #18 and smaller flies which don't work in these kind of boxes.
NEXT... I'd like to take a minute to show off a fly Crackleback sent me for doing swap this past year. NO... You won't see one like this in a 12 fly exchange but for a display on my mantle it's beautiful. It will not be thrown in water fish urinate in.
