    Default New Swap - Catskills Flies

    Okay. Is anyone up for a swap? Let?s try one with a historic theme: Catskills patterns.
    Any historical Catskills pattern tied as close to the original as you can get. Looking for a total of 12 swappers. Sign up by Nov. 30. Flies will be due Jan. 7. If you?re new to swaps ask about rules. Otherwise you know how swapped flies are submitted and returned. Let?s see if we can get this swap going.
    I?ll be tying a Dark Cahill wet.

    Well only 4 participants including myself. Therefore, unfortunately, that’s insufficient to have the swap.
    Maybe it was the theme or time of year or any other reason. Perhaps next time if there is a next time.

    At least I learned to tie a march brown. I got a very generous response when I asked some co-workers for turkey wing feathers a couple of years ago and don't fish enough muddlers to use them up so they would have worked out well for this swap.

    Disappointing; I was excited about the theme. The time of year is certainly plausible; I know that I have less time for tying between Thanksgiving and Christmas than most of the rest of the year.

    I believe I?ve swapped with a lot of guys on this site. Maybe some are unfortunately
    no longer with us, some may have developed other interests, some may have lost interest in swaps
    Or whatever.
    I?ll resubmit this swap for consideration after the new year and see if there?s a little
    more interest.
    I don?t want to forget so I?ll say it now: Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year.
