Okay guys, this thread has been up for one week as of today and we're currently at 9 total participants (including the SM), with one slot remaining that could be filled. If no one else signs up before I leave work at 6:00 tonight, I'm going to go ahead and call it full, and we'll each do 16 flies (8 originals and 8 variants).

 

Thanks to all who have joined so far -- I am looking forward to seeing all of your flies!

 

Bryon

Thx..., Took me three tries to get the proportions right.
I probably haven't tried this patteren in 15 to 20 years. I didn't have the highest quality brown grizzly hackle either but they came out OK

Pursuant to my post of yesterday -- no one claimed the final spot, so I am closing the swap with 9 participants (including SM) -- we will each tie 16 flies (8 originals and 8 variants) and have them to the SM by October 15. I will send a PM to all participants shortly with my mailing address.

Bruce Derington -- I was not able to send you the PM that I sent everyone else with my mailing address. I tried twice, and both times got a message that you were not able to receive new messages. I'm not sure if your mailbox is full or what, but if you could find a way to PM me I can get you that information.

 

Thanks,

Bryon

Okay, well, I've now gotten PMs from several people saying they didn't get my group PM with my mailing address, so I'm going to go back in and send it to each of you individually. I apologize if this results in some of you getting a duplicate message, but I want to make sure everyone has the info.
