    So, we started talking about a small fly swap; the "Going Tiny" Swap and one thing lead to another and here we are with a new swap; one for those who either enjoy tying smaller flies or are up for the challenge. We all know that both early in the season as well as throughout the year, smaller patterns can be killer flies on the water, so there's a great rationale for adding 12 of these flies to your fly box; for those days when the big mayflies, caddis and stones just aren't coming off the water. Anyone fished a midge pattern lately? I know that I have.

    So far, in this swap we have:

    Futuramille
    Joni
    Bamboo10
    Jimmie
    Pocono

    We'll put a limit on this swap of 12 tyers. I'm thinking about a due date after the Thanksgiving Day Holiday in the US (since Peregrines has 2 or more swaps that have due dates of November 20th); probably Dec. 15; just in time for eveyone to get their flies for Christmas.

    Sign-up for this swap if you're interested in tying some small flies and let me know what pattern you'll be tying up.

    Time to swing over those magnifying lenses and check to make sure that your eyeglasses perscriptions are up to date!

    Thank you so much. I guess do them while you can. Seems the hands get stiffer and the eyes get dimmer, but ain't it great.
    We are having our annual freeze your A off at the Provo this Saturday so these flies came at the most perfect time....Gonna TRY to use each one.

    Mine were in the mailbox today. You folks rock!!
    Great tiny flies......I think.....that is if I could see them they would be great!!
    Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.
