Deputy,
I'd be interested in a swap. I've seen similar endeavors before on the www, but never for areas I fished. Lemme know details when you have then sorted out.

heres the way i have seen it done think it would be great but we are not haveing much interest.

first off we limit the number of particiapnts to lets say 12
than each person makes 12 of there favor fly. all the flies are sent in and you then recieve 12 different flies.

as each person signs up they should state what fly they will be making so we dont get any doubles.

i think winter would be a great time to do this i know i tye a lot more during the winter months.

if anyone is interested let me know otherwise i'll dump the idea.

I would be interested in participating and will offer up some "Bead Head Orange Ashers".  I saw this pattern in the Colorado Outdoors magazine this past summer.  I have had good results at the Arsenal with it on Bass and Bluegill.  Have also picked up a few bows in Waterton Canyon with it.

I was thinking about a simple crawdad pattern. It works well for me on most species in both running and stillwaters.
