Thanks for handling the Swap Meister duties again, vt.

Homer can add those to the Iliad and Odyssey as his classics.

Thanks vt for doing the legwork as usual. I'm thrilled that we were able to do this again

VT I agree thanks for putting this together. The flies look GREAT and thanks for extra Hornberg!! When I look at picture of fly I tied (2nd one down) I may have forgot to put on head cement.

Nice ties guys! I can`t wait to get these babies wet! Going to be tough to decide which ones to fish first and so on. Guess, maybe ,I`ll let the river and the trout decide! I enjoyed getting involved in this years swap. Hope we can continue to do them in the future. A special thanks to VT for all that he`d done for us!

Nice try, vd.

Homer ain't rising to that bait.
But if you sink it to the bottom, he might take.

WB was the Instigator.

VD just followed through like he usually do, and laid it softly on the surface.

true dat. Once somebody lays out a plan I can usually follow their instructions. BTW, those breadcrusts look really tasty!

This was a very enjoyable swap! Now let the fish catching begin!!!

Even before these Good flies arrived,
I was under the impression was:
Somebody catch a Trout/Salmonid/Char on Each and Every fly, in One Day.


Correct me if I'm Wrong,
If that's too much to ask.

I'm gonna tie up an alternate set for Glen to use on his annual trip to the Rome hatchery.

Well, you never know. Sometimes , one day , all the trout seem hungry all at once.. the worst part of it is , trying to switch flies fast enough.

So now you should have a contest to see who will be the first to catch a trout on one of the flies.

I've been out twice. I encountered high, cold water and no fish, as one might logically expect at this time of year.
