I need a little clarification on how many flies we are tying. Are we tying one of each for each tyer?


I agree would be nice to know I am fine with doing one of each.

If you like we can close it now then if everyone is ok with it we do one for each water. I will PM everyone for their answers and go from there.

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.

2 hooks is not a requirement, right? So long as it's articulated? Planning on doing the Game Changer of that works for one of my flies.

My dark water fly is going to end being the Hog snare after all. Got a couple done and they only take me about an hour to get a decent version. I say decent and fishable, not Stolis quality but not bad. I haven't decided on clear water tie yet but will not a Snare. Maybe something in the general Game Changer category and using smaller sizes of everything in bright colors We'll see what works out.

Should be ok. There is lots of time. And just so you know we are doing 2 sets. One for a dirty water day and one for clear or what could be clean water.

The swap is closed. Everyone need's two sets of 10 flies. They do not have to be different patterns. For myself I'm doing different ones. You can mix them up if you like. One set you would use for for something like high clear skies and crystal clear water. One set for something like after a heavy rain muddy water day OR night fishing good water.  Due date 1 March 2017. Just in time for the spring run off. PM me for the address to make sure you have the correct one. Thank for joining.
