I've been tying some biot body flies lately and seeing some nice quill body flies online so thought it would be a good swap.  Tie 13 flies with either a quill body or a biot body.  Any style, any stage, any size, usual rules, toe tags, self addressed envelope with return postage or funds, International swappers welcome with PayPal. 

Due Date: June 2nd

sure


Give a man a fish and you'll feed him for the day; Teach a man to tie flies and he'll pick up all the roadkill.

I'll let GP do the Klunk and I'll do a BWO on standard 20 hook with olive biot and light dun hackle.

Sounds interesting. I have never tied with biots or quills however. Looking forward to seeing the outcome.
