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

    Our Midge swap filled up really fast and it seems like there were a lot of folks that would have liked to participate but it filled up before they could get their names in... So...

    How about another Midge Swap, with preference given to folks that got shut out of our last one?

    For this one since we have 14 swappers please tie up 13 flies instead of the usual 12 -- that way everyone will get back 13 flies ( one from each of the other tyers)

    Due date Feb 10, 2012....


    1. Webrx - Rainbow Glass Bead Chromie - RECEIVED
    2. Pocono - Copperhead Midge RECEIVED
    3. La_jolla1 - Gray Duster Variant #20 RECEIVED
    4. williamhj - RECEIVED
    5. kayo - Biot Midge size 18 RECEIVED
    6. dadalo
    7. Famil00 - Marc-O-Midges #22 RECEIVED
    8. s fontinalis - Al's Rat size 20 - RECEIVED
    9. gatortransplant Blue Joni's Midge RECEIVED

    11. Mcnerney - Iceman Midge Pupa - RECEIVED
    12. Stimulator2 - Mosquito Pupa RECEIVED

    (Everyone on the wait list of folks in the 1st midge swap that wanted to be in this one too are in.)

    Great guys, so far we have 3 that got locked out of the 1st midge swap-- and a bunch for the 1st midge swap that want in on this one too-- (let's give other folks a few more days to sign up then we'll fill it up from the wait list).

    Thanks for doing a second one Mark, I will tie one of these, I don't really care which, so whatever everyone else ties, I can do something different, or you all can pick the one I tie. I don't tie real fancy ones, and only tie a few named ones, but they all work. I am partial to the black tungsten beads (but I have 13 left that will fit a size 16 hook so just enough), or the rainbow glass bead heads (these have to be a little bigger because of the bead size I think I can tie in 14 but will double check)



    Chromie (red wire), Chromie (gold wire), Red with Silver with gills, red with silver tan wing, red headed zebra, zebra with tan wing, brown and gold with glass bead head, brown and gold with no bead.

    Or I could do one of these for this swap

    Mark: Put me on the wait list also! I love tying midges and it's even better fishing them.
