Well, I'd like to join this one. Many of my midges look at least somewhat like the picture from leat year's swap, but I'll try to come up with something at least a little bit different. Do let me know the rules, numbers and schedules, somebody.

Sean, what we've typically been trying to do lately is get one extra fly for the meister, and one extra fly from each participant to be put together in a group and used at the fly shows for auction to support the site.

If you want, you can gather the extra flies for the auction and then mail them on to me or another moderator who can get them to the fly shows. Just ask if you have more questions.

SDHflyfisher
12-11-2003, 05:06 PM
OK
i'll send the extras to john or pete

so you guys need to tie 9 flies then
