SWAP IS FULL!

I mentioned possibly having this after Wet Fly Swap is and have got a few pms from people on here engaging interest so i am going to host it. 3 people have confirmed that they would like in so i will take 12 more people to make it fair for everyone to enter. Everyone tie 15, due date is January 30th. Although it would be cool if we had 15 different types of midges , different color variations of same type will be fine if everyone agrees.

Joe
Thanks for including me. I need to learn to fish the little guys. I'm way to dependent upon streamers. I'm looking in a midge book now. Ill probably tie a popular southern tailwater pattern. If nothing jumps out at me it will be a zebra midge or variant. I tie a zebra with a herl collar that my buddy swears by but I have never fished it.

A red zebra midge with a herl collar has saved me from blanking on several occasions

I will tie my Little Thing. A dry/emerger/wet midge depending how you fish it.
