Like a episode of Sister Wives, Too much drama to get a Fly Swap going for me I will just sit back and watch this unfold, Can't wait to see what may get tied

Yeah a specific theme is good. We also need a dozen tyers or so and I don't count near that many in the conversation so far. Every swap there are fewer participants as the season progresses. Just don't make it so specific that only a few people want to play. I'm EZ and I'll tie anything I am capable of.

I am glad I don't know what Sisters Wives is.

Come on man, the thread is for "ideas for the next swap" so if you have an idea and like to play in the swaps go ahead, otherwise why be a wise guy?

At risk of making this worse, I will try to keep this brief:

There were some promises made previously for upcoming swaps that I was unaware of when I volunteered to give Larry a break from hosting. I enjoy hosting swaps. I do not mean hurt anyone's feelings, break anyone else's promises, create a soap opera out of the simple pleasure that is trading some flies with a bunch of restless wintertime fishermen!

I would like to end this thread now. Please look for a new post soon with the announcement of the next swap.

Thank you!
