    All- I've closed the swap out at 6 tyers- Pocono, Wovenstonefly Aroostookbasser and s fontinalis, Hardyreels you guys are in, and I'll jump in to make it an even 6.

    For those interested, I'll also be running another salmon and steelhead fly swap for a wider range of patterns (hairwing, single slip whole featherwing, dee, spey styles etc) for 13 tyers. Look for it in a separate thread.

    These flies are going to look great on my wall, in a frame .......matted and labelled.

    I have about 7500 flies I have collected from swaps over the last 6 years. All are destined to be shadow boxed and on display.

    Guys,
    If everyone is cool with this, I'm going to change pattern to a somewhat simpler fly.
    I may have bitten off more than I can chew with the Jock Scott in terms of getting things right for the swap. I can tie the fly, badly, and I don't want to send a badly tied fly for the swap. I know this is not in the spirit of swaps, where tyers of all skill levels are invited to participate, but I want to tie the best possible fly I can, primarily so I don't let myself down.
    That said, I'm going to tie a thunder and lighting.

    Hope this is ok.

    That won't bother me, I had indicated when becoming a participant that I would be tying up a Dee wing pattern and not a married wing fly. I made that decision based on 2 criteria; it is easier to make but still elegant in appearance, and the pattern caught perhaps 50 - 60 fish last year. I use the T&L tied hair wing style for salmon and it is a good fly and catches fish.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Fine with me!

    Got me thinking about my own pattern. I'll tie a Blue Charm for this swap.

    How about an extension to April 1st?

    With sickness in the family, I had to drop out of the winged wet fly swap (my favorite patterns) and I can tell right now that I'll never make March 15th.

    So, let me know what you think.
