For those of us watching from the sidelines is it possible to see pics and maybe receipes of what each of you tie?
That would be fasinating for this novice.

Most of the time the pictures are posted and the recipes can be requested.

Look in some of the other swaps and you will find that pictures were taken at one point and posted to the forum. I will look for the links to the last one I hosted for you.

Ok to show the people watching the sides, will all the participates post the recipe and picture of the fly they will submit on the thread.

I think that this will really help the participates and people watching grow and become better tyers. I know that through other people I have learned much more that I would of learned by reading only.

thoughts?

Jimmie,

Here is the link to the pictures of the last swap I hosted. I listed the members so that you can contact the tyer by PM for the recipe.

I also have the recipes. I can send you any you need.
