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.

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/phpBB3/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'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!

:cool
