It goes against all my grains, but I will attempt the micro mayfly.

Glad to have you join us, Decisions. I've got you down for the Micro Mayfly. Would you consider tying it on a #28? innocent.gif

I'll join this swap if Mr. Murray's Mr. Rapidan is still available. I was just in his shop buying materials for tying this pattern the other week and would love the practice from this swap.

Only 4 patterns left and they are all basic patterns that any experienced tyer could tie. There are 2 parachute patterns, and 1 emerger. If someone wants to substitute the Ausable Wulff for the BDE, that can be arranged.

That big? The other option would be on these Berkley fusion swimbait needle points I got, they are only 7/0... lol

Got you down, jburge. I'm glad that you will be joining us. A lot of guys are getting ready for opening day, so it's gray wit a very good swapper joins us.

Only 3 patterns left. I parachute, the only emerger in this set and the BDE. Better jump in while you can, it's going to be an awesome set of flies. A chance like this doesn't come around every day.

Hi Breambuster:
I would like to join your swap if you will have me? This will be my first swap on flytyingforum.com
But have done 5 or 6 swaps on other sites. I do like using the Sulfer Middle Man pattern but have never tied it. I thought this would be a great oportunity to get some practice on that pattern.

Thanks
