    Default Re: Midge Swap #2 for those that didn't get in the 1st one

    Is there an estimated due date for these? It's gonna be a busy couple weeks, but I'm interested.

    I don't know if this is technically a midge, but it's something I like tying. If it looks like it'll work I'll be in. I'll tie them in 20's (and a bit more cleaned up) either weighted or unweighted.

    Looks pretty midgey to me

    I think I have decided to tie up some glass bead chromies for this swap. I will tie them a little tighter then the photo, I didn't notice the loose wraps in the tail until I posted the pics.

    I'd like to join in on this one - although I haven't selected a fly yet.

    I'm gonna plunk for Al's Rat size 20 if i get in on this one again.
    All the proposals look great so far.
    The midges are definitely bringing out great examples of tying.

    Great folks -- you're all in, including everyone on the wait list

    Dadalo-- welcome to the forum, glad you found us and jumped in on this swap.

    willamhj- that looks very midge like to me too--

    Kayo- here's a sticky that explains how the fly swaps work: Fly Swap Guidelines

    All- let's give it a few more days to see who else jumps in (2 more places open). I know folks will be anxious to fish these this winter, and hopefully they shouldn't be too difficult to tie-- so hopefully we can have quick turnaround on this one.

    Let me know what you think of a due date of Jan 30 2012 or if that's too soon how about Feb 10, 2012?

    Number of votes decides it....

    I'll send my address to everyone in the swap via PM next week. If we fill up and get 13 swappers then if everyone ties 12 flies, you'll each get 12 flies back (1 from each of the other tyers). ( In the event someone drops out or we get less than 13 tyers in the swap, I'll divide the flies up evenly so everyone gets 12 flies back (1 from each of the other tyers plus however many randomly selected duplicates needed to get to 12 flies).

    As always I'll send folks a PM when their flies arrive so you'll know they made it and will update this swap thread when flies from you are received, and will post pics and recipes after the swap is completed.

    Mark,

    I'll take the 12th slot - if it's still open......

    If you're still open, then Feb 10th works fo me.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Whoops - if I'd read your first post carefully, I would have found myself already on the list - thanks Mark!
