And feel free to jump in on fly swaps if any interest you- everyone is always welcome regardless of experience.
Definitely hooked! I actually just finished up 24 flies for my first fly swap. I will definitely be on jumping in on more of those.

Take care,

Heck yeah! I inevitably end up in that area nearly once a year. I am bidding on a few projects that way as I speak. I'll keep you posted!!
