SWAP CLOSED. DUE DATE April 10, 2012 Djgunter and I are jointly hosting this swap. We will invite (8) swappers and ask them to tie their best Sculpin patterns. Based on the flies we receive, we will judge which fly is the best in terms of effort, skill and style involved in constructing the fly. We will also post the photos in the swap thread. Once we have decided which tyer is the deserving winner, we will send them 10 flies in the mail from (djgunter) as a prize. What flies they will receive is yet to be determined, but I will make sure they are pretty interesting.

The due date will be published once the swap has filled up. All other standard swap rules apply. Good luck and have fun!

Thanks!

Your flies will be mailed to South Carolina and I will sort them and mail them back to you.

A Pitt fan, a Marshall fan, and a WVU fan are climbing a mountain and arguing about who loves their team most. The Marshall fan insists that he is most loyal and then yells,"This is for Marshall!" and jumps off the mountain. Not to be out done,The WVU fan next professes his love for his team. He screams,"This is for the Mountaineers!" and pushes the Pitt fan off the mountain.

Okay guys, the due date will be one month from the date the swap is full. So approximately the end of March or beginning of April.

Well, I'm accepting my invite but have to say, this is quite a group. I'll put my best foot forward to hang with some of the folks I respect the most.
