Fly Swap #2
Well folks, it doesn't seem like there's much going on around here! How 'bout a fly swap? I'll happily host again. All I'm doing is waiting for this heat to break!

**SIGNUP IS NOW OVER**
Flies to me by the end of the month

Theme is: SOFT HACKLE!

RE: Fly Swap #2
Oh, what the heck, i'll do another. Just be warned that they may be tied on slightly modified aberdeen hooks. Blush I've been depleting my stock of true fly hooks.... it seems i have taken up fishing for squirels on some days. The trees above water like my hooks just as much as the rocks below water when i have fly rod in hand.

As far as a theme, IMO we should leave it open since we are somewhat limited on fly guys? Totaly up to you though. Wink I will TRY to tie just about anything ya tell me to....

i DO know jjsjigs is a fly guy - i will sweeten the deal to entice him into the swap and say i will tie a PROVEN smallmouth fly if the limitations allow.

I was thinking about a theme today, and here's what I've come up with: soft hackle. Your pattern has to have a soft hackle of some sort. A friend of mine sat down and was tying a marabou and duck soft hackle on a size 2 or so hook last night, as I was working on some dainty little #16 traditional partridge and oranges. I think it's a very broad theme, open to many different things!

I'll leave it open through the weekend! We need a few more tyers. They don't have to be perfect, they just need to get you tying!
