I would be in too! My cat has a great shade of rust that I would be interested in using for dubbing!

Do we have a winner on the swap rules...I don't tie as fast as most of you guys...is wire a natural material. Do I need to use horse tail hair to tie my flies instead of thread...what about beads?

Is the ban pretty much on synthetic blends/rubber legs/pugliesi stuff?

I would say wire would be a reasonably "natural" material.

boss - I'd say the way you lay it out sounds good to me, wire, hair, fur, feathers=good. Synthetic dubbings, mylar flash, artificial hair, rubber legs, etc = bad.

Beads? I could go either way on those.

Any other thoughts?

My outdoor cats just laid a clean kill squirrel on my backdoor step and seemed to be pretty proud of it. Maybe I could use the tail to ties up something with that, not much else was left. LOL!

The "All Natural" theme seems to have a following. I think since it is the PAFF Swap for 2011 that we should have a "loose" definition of all natural. As to not scare any tiers away, though this would be a very interesting specialty swap later down the road.
Acceptable materials would be natural hair, feathers and fur. With exceptions being wire used for ribbing and beads.
Non acceptable would be foam, tinsel/mylar, synthetic hair, wire bodied flies, yarn and chenille flies and rubber legs.
These "rules" are not set in stone yet and this is open for more discussion.

I'm ready to start tying. Do you want to know what we are tying? How many do we have to do and when do we have to send them in?

No, you do not have to keep your pattern a secret. Go ahead and post your pattern and I set a "soft" cap of 16. It seems we may fall short of that number, but keep in mind that the deadline to still a few weeks away.
