My first swap should be finishing up in a couple weeks and I was thinking about running another when it's finished. My thoughts are 12 tyers 15 Flys each the standard dozen plus 3 wildcards. First 12 Any kind you want standard channel and hackle is fine make the last three fancy or all 15 fancy as buggers go anyways. Wild cards will be distributed randomly.

I wish I could, love tying and fishing buggers... And like your planning... Should know what other commitments I am facing by time the Favorite swap finishes out. Will let you know ... dozen Vanilla buggers and a dozen mayfly emergers should get to you in a few days.. Give me a critique on the Vanillas, either way ...

Vicente ... you can join more than one swap at a time.  You just can't HOST more than one swap at a time.

Let me know when you have an idea about a due date.  I am tying for several swaps now so will have to see how I am doing.

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.
