I'd like to suggest a focused theme like we have done in other years - only Flies tied with either stainless steel or bronze hooks

that's going to be tough

and in a more serious note...I would suggest favorite/most productive fly from the past season.  Its really about the beer and bullshit stories.

Since I only fish 4 times a year, and use the same flies almost every year, the productive fly aspect is going to be tough..... since I probably already tied it for the swap multiple times.

Plus 2 of those times this year was with me, and your flies don't work so you kept using mine.  I guess I will be tying up Shakey's contribution this year. I better get going

That's because by the time the albies arrived - you had already used up your 4 trips for the year.

I'm in. Where ever and whatever. I could even host if needed. We can test the flies in the hot tub.

We will definitely need to figure out who is in and where's the good spot!

Looking forward to this one.

I'm a little further south now, so if that helps equal out the travel distance for more people just let me know...

Might even get the kegerator up and running again....like old times lol
