I decided to host my first swap.
I'm thinking 12 people perhaps a few more if it fills fast. Your favorite or one of your favorite Flys any pattern or type is fine, nothing to small though, let's try to keep it size 14 or larger. Due date Feb 20th of that is acceptable.
Swap is full

1. Dflanagan, elk hair caddis. Received
2. Jolly Red, deer hair bugs. Received
3 vicrider, soft hackle. Received
4. Flatrocknative, flash vanilla bugger. Received

I'll join in if you'll have me. I've only been fly fishing for about six months but I've had a lot of luck with an elk hair caddis. I could do a variation in size 12.

I'd like in with soft hackle. Will have to decide to go with traditional or modern versions but probably traditional Pearsall's Silk and Partridge.
