I was trying to figure out how to get some of your great flies and I figured it out...I or someone should start a flatwing swap.

John and Mike,

At the risk of being a bit out of my depth (pardon the pun), I would be happy to organize a flatwing swap if you really think there is enough interest. Do you see it as running after the shrimp-swap or concurrently with it?

BTW: Love the "Bomber" Tying one right now!

Best regards,

Joe Wojtan just notified me that he wants in on this swap also.
So , John, are you gonna be the swapmaster?

I can do that.. two going at once..ok with me.. by the way where is Joe..is he having computer troubles..I have not heard from him..I hope he got his flies. Also, we don't need a ton of people ..we can just run it like the others. Should I begin the broadcasts?

Joe is having puter probs. Said he is unable to post right now.
I guess you can broadcast away.
I think we should do a 3 feather flatwing. Color could be whatever everyone wants to do.
Should we pick a length? I like 3 feathers in about 5-6". That should be easy for everyone.
Sound good?

Yes..lets do it. I will broadcast later today.
