I'm getting pretty comfortable with the vise and bobbins, just finished reading up on the swaps. Sounds fun, I'm currently better at dry flies, but I'm trying everything.

Sign me up for the next one please.

As soon as the one Larry is hosting wraps up there will be another. We will probably not start until after Christmas, we have seen what happens close to the holidays and it isn't good. If you are good at dries I would say to pick a pattern, tie a dozen good ones and set them aside. As soon as a swap comes up you'll be ready, if you were to let me know you were doing that I'd make sure you got on the first dry fly swap in the number one slot. That way you are ready....... Just saying, if you wanna tie then go for it

The current fly swap ends on Dec 16th, so let us know what you like to tie and we will set up the next swap to accommodate.

Sounds good.

I'll open with a "#18 Winter Caddis Emerger" a popular very early pattern used locally on the Farmington river.

Should be just about the right time for that fly.

I tied these for the swap to be ready as requested.

As they are not midges, I guess I'll wait for the next one

Ctshooter: I forgot about your earlier request, why not join in on the midge swap with the flies you have already, I'm sure the others won't mind. If you are fine with that I will sign you up.......we'd be glad to have you join!
