    Sorry to hear it Geoff-- but congrats on the new arrival-- that should keep you and mom busy

    I just sent out a PM, to all-- you included -- raising the swap limit to 15--- I'll lower it down to 14 now, so 13 flies from everyone....

    Brian & Mark (and others),

    This is the foam beetle that I'm planning on doing.

    I've also got a yellow hopper that I can/will do if we are short tyers, or if there are too many foam beetles. (I picked-up the materials that I was short for both patterns, yesterday!)

    The Beetle! Do the beetle, that is a beauty, and I don't this there can be too many beetles in one's terrestrial box.

    I think I will be doing a CDC Beetle that I saw on the innernets, where else? It has a CDC "humpy-style" back and looks pretty nice.

    Is the swap closed or can I take Geoff's place?

    I've got some ants already tied up.

    I'm starting to think I may need to select a different pattern. My beetle is embarrassingly simple, though it has worked well for me.

    So is mine, the JC nail is for the angler rather than the fish.
