Default Spring Brookie Swap

Can we get an open swap for all flies tyed for Brook Trout?
WETS/DRIES/STREAMERS/NYMPHS

Can we also leave this open to accept 24 tyers instead of 12? The more the merrier. Breaking with tradition can be a riot!!!

I'm no expert, and not yet even a "good" novice, but I'd like to give one the easier to tie nymphs or wets a try.

Thank YOU!!!!

Looks like we have a few very interested parties for this one!!!

Fly selection is an individual choice..........but brookies are an Eastern trout Species. A cold water trout much like the rest of the char family it is a member of. Traditional trout patterns should suffice. But newer beaded nymphs and foam hoppers are catching alot of good fish too.



This is a swap to let your imagination go!!! But remember.......you will have to tie 24 or more flies!!!

Peregrines..........can we have this one due on May 1st. Tax season will be over and fishing will have begun for most.

(Seems there is a clouser swap.........due date April 15th? )
