So with a Kid coming in February, I'm hoping for a mid January Date on this... I know that might conflict with Marlborough, but let me know people's thoughts?

Late January would be better for me, I'm in the Bahamas the 10-17th on Jan. and expect tying efforts to focus on that between now and then, but i'll try to make it work whenever.   :salute

Late January might work for me.

The preliminary discussions of fly swap theme can start here. But I think some of the conversations is going to take place at Sweatshirt handout this saturday

i'm down for tying anything...maybe something like old school fly patterns, things you don't think to tie anymore, but with a modern/personal twist?


or....something like all hoppahs :thumbsup:

oh that's an interesting one.

Or we could do a Materials one. Must contain "X". Like it must have Estaz in it or something.

Won't be in attendance this weekend... Any stories relayed by Shakey involving me are complete BS.

I'll ultimately be in for whatever format we land on... But my vote is open architecture. If Matt wants to tie a half a bucktail onto a 4/0... While Shakey ties up meth eggs... And Mayo scours the earth for small plastics bags for his professional packaging... I'm cool with that.

Chris... You set the packaging bar pretty high last year... Don't let me down.

Thanks Jeff
I'm all about marketing/packaging.  You guys thought you got a quality product from me just from the looks of the package, when in reality you did not.

When I show up this year with 2 vegas showgirls in sparkly bikinis, who will hand you all out my san juan worm flies with a kiss--- you guys will nickname me "gartside" from the awesome flies I always bring to these swaps.
