I've updated the front page, and also here....

 

To make things more efficient, please when you are finished your ties, let RichMc and I know and we'll get his address to you.  It will be much cheaper and easier for everyone involved if we have a centralised point in USA for the swap. 

 

Still two more players needed.  But with nine of us we'll still just do one of each tie if no one else comes to the party.

Still one more player...  Either way I'll close the swap on Sunday so we can get to it...

 

If we stick with 9, plus me, please only tie 9 flies, and you won't get yours back...  Fingers crossed we get that extra one so that we can even it out to 10 ties each....

Well, everyone, I have not tied any saltwater specific flies yet but we will be visiting the Virginia Beach area this summer and I'd love to have some patterns for the trip.  If you'll have me, I'll get in with a Gotcha.

JD1983  You are more than welcome!

 

That's it everyone.  We've a full list of swappers!!

10 ties each, please remember your toe tags (Dave), and you won't get your own back.

 

RichMc will be the distribution point, so please let myself and Rich know when you are ready to send them on their merry way :)

Glad to be in.

 

Does anyone have a size preference for the Gotcha, sz 2 or sz 4?  Can't decide which way to go.

Haha. What a dilemma! Both are just as good as each other.... I'd like to see a #4, but would probably use a #2 more.... :D

Lol a gotcha is a traditional bonefish pattern that would probably be better with balls too Adam, so now you have a dilemma! Lol by the way how do you keep your proportions right on your male shrimp? LMAO
