Got you added BB. And flat rock I tend to be of the same opinion as Vic. Size 14-16 would likely still get eaten but I would worry about them taking the fly deep. 8-10 is what I usually throw for panfish. Shaping up to be a very nice box. I know there are some warmwater guys that still need to get in on this and these will catch trout too.

Thanks Guys! Will go with a 8, unless I find some 10.1xl packed away.

Since we're still a good ways away from the due date I'll leave it open for another 2 weeks or so. Could also open it up so that any of the remaining patterns from the website are fair game instead of just the ones I selected if there are no objections? Did the list to simplify things and get a good variety but I would hate to miss out on someone participating when they would have otherwise.

I could do the brim special if a variant is ok, just don't have all the colors shown of everything.

Mike I've got you down for the teal and Vicente I've got you down for the brim special if that is ok? Tomwarbler the gimp is all yours. One spot left! I know someone out there wants to tie a black laced mcginty

To get the last spot filled up any of the remaining flies from the website are fair game. So swapper #12 can choose from black laced mcginty, marabou damsel nymph, bristleback nymph, grizzly chick or any of the other ones I omitted just let me know. Thanks everyone for signing up. Once we get the 12th I'll send everyone a pm with my shipping info. Saw where we had at least one new person so if you have any questions feel free to shoot me a PM.

Hey guys it's starting to warm back up so it would be a good time to start stocking up on warmwater flies. I have selected 12 flies from here http://www.warmwater...m/patterns4.asp
First come first serve on the fly selections. Well do 12 plus me so everyone will tie 12 flies. All regular rules apply. These flies are all fairly basic so this would be good for a beginner looking to get into a swap. Due date of April 15th.
SM: panfish polecat
1. Brim bug - islander727
2. cockaroo - CE
3. Teal of your color choice - mike west
4. Fox tail grub - breambuster

Now you have me officially envying you. I am just happy my trophy wife supports my obsession. I cannot get close to doing any pottery to share with her passion. She fishes my flies, tho and I am grateful

SOUNDS like this is not a catch and release relationship. Best TO both of you
