Also, I'm not sure if you guys were apart of the Gillbuster Swap on NEF a few years back, but he did it up nicely, I'm going to try and find something special for this swap... more to follow. Going to try and make this one special.

I ordered up my materials...

I've been looking for ideas on a pattern that might suspend/work shallow and slow...and deadhead minnow came up a bunch, so that will be one of the patterns i'll tie.

the other is a smaller pattern called a glass minnow...looks like a little tasty striper snack lol.

With this as my second post and being a forum newbie, I would like to get in on this swap if it's not to late. Billerica is the next town over for me and I would love to meet some local fly fishing cohorts.


Let me know what I can contribute:


Deceivers



Slumpbusters



Conehead Muddler Minnow (in progress)



Half & Half



Gartside Softhackle Streamers (in progress)



Or just about anything else of interest.


Hope I can join you next month.


Best,
Dean
