You're more than welcome. Read the rules for the swap well. Get a nice box for the flies and do the best job you can. The key here as a new comer is picking easier patterns like no hackle dry flies, soft hackle wet flies, bead head thread nymphs with wire or contrasting thread spaced wraps. I have seen people ask for criticism on their flies and it has always been constructive. Nobody rips someone else's work if they're trying and those on this segment of the board are more than welcome for the Christmas Swap.
