Default "Clouser" swap

I am currently ready "Flyfishing for Smallmouth in Rivers and Streams" by Bob Clouser and it has peaked my interest in his flies. I was wondering if anyone out there would be interested in a "Clouser only" type of swap. I would think that it would be nice if we kept to the actual Clouser patterns, and that if someone wanted to tie say the Clouser Deep Minnow then no one else would choose that same fly, or at least in the same color. It would be nice to see patterns such as the Clouser Strymph, Clouser Crayfish, Clouser Floating Minnow, etc. etc. I would start the swap with tying the Clouser Hellgrammite as this is a pattern that really has my interest. Maybe we could set up a due date in line with the Brookie swap that is in the works in case people want to participate in both.... I think maybe an April 15 deadline may work out for folks? I think we could keep this one to the normal 13 swapper would be fine.... Thoughts? Mark, what do you think?

I'm in!!! Love those clousers!!!!!

Let this one happen earlier than the brook trout...12 tyers is good. BT may need more time for all the tyers to do the 24 flies if we get that many signed on!

Tied my first Clouser in class tonight. Instructors said that it was good, and that it would catch fish, but IMHO, it would have to look a WHOLE LOT better, just to be called pathetic!!!! Time for PRACTICE!!!!
