kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

Winter’s coming. So are the midges.

Capping it at 12. Each tyer spins up 22 flies - 11 flies of two different patterns. Size 20 or smaller. A good coozie is required.

Image

Usual rules apply: organized and sorted flies (don't send me a baggie full of #22 flies I have to sort – they’ll just get sent back to you), toe tags required, proper postage (Mitch excepted), have your flies in by the deadline, etc.

Deadline: Dec. 15th

Patterns: http://www.drakemag.com/index.php?optio ... 08#p367244

The 1st midge swap was great. Last year's was top shelf. Bruiser don't lie.

I'm expecting the 3rd to be the best yet.

Who's in?

I was thinking that a midge swap would be a good idea

I'm in for a change. I still have saddle hackle so one of mine will be a floater.

PS if anyone will be fishing that well known NM tailwater this weekend please let me know.

PPS get Lando in here - he may not admit it but he ties very nice teeny tiny flies.

PPPS someone please tie some that will work on the James Taylor tailwater!
That sounds awesome in my ears!! (P-A)

we were basking in goodness here with our everyday drivel that we enjoy.... the rest of this is horseshit, flybug.pa.

:cool
