    I'll do this one.

    I've got a nice easy foam pattern that fishes well.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    Count me in Mark. I'll tie "Pink Pookie Hoppers". Worked great in the Sierras last year, plus sent some to my friend in WY who said they were great.

    If this doesn't fill up real quick but with finals looming and all that jazz I'll give someone else a chanceto snag it. Let me know if we need any takers. I'd probably tie an 8 hoppicator or charly boy hopper.

    BigCliff, Jimmie, and Mudbug, glad to have you in this one. And Lancer feel free to jump in if you think you can swing it with finals.

    Now please excuse me while I try to visualize a Pink Pookie Hopper....

    Mark,

    I am still new to tying and have joined the panfish/bass fly swap. I would like to do this swap also. I will tie the Madam X, which according to my book is good not only as a grasshopper imitator, but also during a stoneflly hatch or as a general attractor.

    Thanks,
    Forrest
