I can be in for an albie fly and it is not a Clouser. if you wanna do a big red fly it is gonna be, at least for me, a clouser or a deceiver.

Bradley and I would probably be interested in joining in on this fun, can you give a little more specifics on how it works and what you need to do?
what / how /many/ what the specific target species or fly etc etc ?

Smoot - I think you have in mind the same afternoon I do when you bring up sippers. As I recall you pulled a fish or two out, while Cutter and I cast and cast and cast.

LW - How this works:
Pick a theme.
sign up a dozen or so tiers.
Each ties a dozen or so of a pattern within the theme.
Pack each fly with a description of materials
You pack yours up and send them with a postage paid, addressed, return box to, in this case, me.
Do that by the "deadline" (TBD)
I rearrange them so that everyone gets one of each of the other tiers flys, and mail em back out in the provided postage paid boxes.

then the days get longer, the fish start biting, and you use em.
You might even copy a few!

I will particularly copy Smoot's sipper flys!

Ok so it each person picks a theme, or the group picks the theme?
other than that I got, it sounds like fun!
I'm in, I'm pretty sure Bradley will be too! Once he gets back from Europe and gets spring semester started in a week or so.
