Well so far we have six people in this swap:
Bead Head
Professori
Sparky
Phearless
Jabarns
Fish finder
I think we should leave open until the end of the month and then will know who's in and how many flies to tie. If we only get the six of us would you guys be interested in doing two patterns one bright pattern and one dark one? Just a thought
Thanks

Hey Brit Guy you can contribute any flies you want so long as you have eight of the same pattern so that everyone participating gets one.
Thanks

Okay so here’s are final list for the steelhead swap
1 Bead Head
2 Sparky
3 Phearless
4 Jabarns
5 Professori
6 Fish Finder
7 Capilano Mano
8 Bergler
9 Brit Guy
So if everyone's into it will be tying two patterns of your choice one Light and one Dark. So that means we each have to tie 16 flies each 8 light ones of the same pattern and 8 dark one's of the same pattern. Will set a due date for Feb 28th so we can fish these in early March. Don't forget to toe tag your flies with your username this makes it much easier at my end when I'm dividing the flies to be sent out. Also you must include a self-addressed envelope with proper postage so I can send your flies back. Boxes under 20mm thick can be mailed as letters but if your over that size it's considered a small packet and the price goes way up. If anyone has any questions you can PM me.
Thanks

Okay we've got one more person joining Mike D. So this means we all have too tie 9 light flies and 9 dark flies. Also if no one objects how about moving the due date up to Feb 1st like Professori mentioned this still gives us all of December and January to 18 flies. Let me know what you think?
New Final List:
1 Bead Head
2 Sparky
3 Phearless
4 Jabarns
5 Professori
6 Fish Finder
7 Capilano Mano
8 Brit Guy
9 Bergler
10 Mike D
Thanks

Beadhead sounds like Britguy is in a bind for time so Feb 28 as a due date works for me if it works better for him. I've tied up some crystal leech variants (light) and some purple bunny leech stingers (dark)

Just want to make sure we have this right! We need to tie 10 light flies and 10 dark flies and they need to be sent to bead head on or before Feb 28. Those of you that have done this before with bead head probably have the address and directions of how he wants it done. Those of us that haven't, could you please private message us your address and swap directions, i.e.; packaging preferences, money for return shipping.
