Exclamation Fly swap with a twist? UPDATE!!

I tied up a dozen flies yesterday and did the same today. It's the first time I've dragged my lazy butt up to tie since early spring. It got me thinking about a swap to keep me motivated. Any interest in a swap using only or mostly something you or someone you know harvested. You know ring neck pheasant, woodcock, squirrel, rabbit, duck, deer, bear etc.
I figure a maximum of 12 tiers and done and mailed by December 4th. That gives everyone plenty of time and I can get them back to you by Christmas. If you want to join but don't have any "natural" materials let me know and I'd be happy to help you out. If it's something I don't have I'm sure someone else will jump in and help you out.

How about any fly no restrictions synthetic wet, dry streamer?

Dave

I'm not a harvester, but would like to participate in the swap. I can tie up some 'all natural' hares ears (except for the gold rib). Say size #12 or 14.

Sounds good Bobo! Old man called me and he's going to tie. It's pretty quiet around here isn't it? I'll tie some #14 bead headed Red squirrel nymphs I've been wanting to try. Hopefully we'll get some more interest going in the next week or so.

I will do it. I have some snowshoe hare feet given to me by a friend. I will post the exact pattern later.

the czechs use to tie nymphs using salami skins for scudback before the synthetic material was invented. That's pretty much the only material I can think of "harvesting" myself. Does it qualify?
