Winter steelhead fly swap

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.

Hoping there is a open invite for @Glista and @GinnsingSulivan.
Thank you fellas, we had a blast. Even caught a few trout too.

I was thinking along the same lines as Yard. Definitely want to keep numbers down so we aren't spreading ourselves thin but wouldnt complain one bit it one or two more ballers wanted join. *Cough cough GS, Randal, Glista, MT, etc etc *

Edit: should we sign you up Mitch or shall we put you in the 'I'll just comment in here and provide moral support' list? If it's a no you can't say it's because a lack of stickies.

Double edit: If GS posts 8 pictures of flies to his instagram or on here during the time frame of this swap and doesn't join I say we mail him a bead box and a flaming bag of franzen.

If you guys need 10 strands of blue flashabou lashed to a hook then @Randall Dee is your man. Sometimes he even adds bead chain eyes!

Perhaps ordering a new cape of JC to finish off my scandi choobs from Houston wasn't the smartest dicision I've ever made. But by the looks of things I might still be ahead of you fellas :Roll Eyes

It's almost like I thought starting a swap 5 months in advance would keep people from waiting until the last week to tie them all.

At least we can give the finger to anyone says this place has changed.

It also appears XL black temple dog is essentially made out of unobtainium these days so you gheys will have to be content with an ostrich wing.

Will probably do 4 of this early fall scheme by a local tier I really admire in the area (Bob Braendle) and a red/orange or purp scheme.
