SWAP IS FULL, thank you all for your responses.
Haven't hosted in a while and I'm just finishing up my creature baits for the Bass Swap and I'll be caught up. The boy does have an interesting idea for a swap. Trout related flies or ties or flures or nymphs or shrimps or anything that is primarily a creation of your own off the vise. Since you know and I know "There is nothing new under the Sun" when it comes to flies (rare exceptions) I'm not expecting anything too radical but almost all have sat there and thrown some fur or feathers together and come up with something that catches a fish and didn't come directly from and SBS or video. If you can't come up with something truly original (how would you?) then modify a known element with different materials or colors or with legs when it didn't have them or articulated when it's not normally done.
Main idea is this. Original fly from the vise (as much as possible). Trout or panfish related (no saltwater on this one). Normal rules from there. Toe tags, return shipping covered, meet the deadline. Since most swaps are finishing up by July 31, let's do this one for August 28th the last Friday in August. If for any reason you want to join but can't see making the deadline get it out now and we can extend deadline for everyone so some don't work hard to make it and then wait on others. Flies to me at
