I'd certainly like to try one!
Count me in then David, thanks for hosting! Do you have a list compiled of who's in?

Afish-I'd never seen the Evil Weevil, but that's one that I certainly need to tie! Thanks for the link and photo.

I've been in a couple of swaps and I found that an empty Altoid's tin is perfect to hold flies. Even when we did a bugger/streamer swap they all fit nicely. I also like to add a tag of paper to the hook with your PAFF handle or name and pattern

Count me in on the swap; I'll take on a PT or PT-"ish" nymph. Let me know what size(s) to tie; I'm new to FF and to Steelhead.

I'm looking forward to swaping flies with everyone.

If we're looking for one more:

Ran this by my buddy brian that many of you met at the jam. He's a beginning tier, but would like to give it a shot if y'all don't mind his developing skills. I think he has an account here, but doesn't post.

Well I was thinking of not being in this one because I've been tying so much lately. I'm getting into a funk... almost 200 flies in the past month is a bit much for me... BUT... I'll do it. I see that we said "lets not all tie egg flies" and NO ONE is tying any egg flies yet so I'll tie my famous cotton candy egg fly. Count me in for a dozen.

Ok, sign up period is over...so start tying!!! We ended up with 14 total...so everyone needs to tie 13 flies (plus any extra if you would like DKile or the mods to rec've them as well). This should help fill everyones steelhead box very nicely!!!

I will email everyone after my daughters physical therapy today.
I think I have all emails, but it you haven't sent it to me please do so at your ealiest convenience.
