Midges: First Fly Swap for 2014
 
Now that we have wrapped up the soft hackle fly swap it is time to start a new fly swap, Eunan had a great idea since it is midge fishing time across most of the country, lets do a Midge Fly Swap. I'll host this swap again, and since we have the new year holiday tomorrow, lets extend the due date to Monday, Feb 10, 2014. As usual the swap will be limited to the first fourteen members that sign up. Each tier will tie 14 midges of your choice and don't forget to include toe tags with either your name, pattern name or both, when you send them in, also don't forget to post up the recipe of the pattern.

Edit: The swap is full!

Sounds good, glad to have you in the swap. Don't worry about it, nothing you can really do and it isn't that big of deal. The mail delivery here is kind of hit or miss, sometimes we get deliveries really fast and other times it makes a person wonder. This round, JP's flies from France and Brian's flies from Australia came in pretty quickly, but we've had other times where everyone is crossing there fingers hoping they make it.
