Haven’t done one in awhile, and while it can be tedious to tie the same 12 flies. It’s always cool to see some of other peoples “fish catching” patterns, and get fresh ideas. Would anyone be interested in doing another? Would be capped at 12 people and can decide on species/pattern after we gain enough interest.

Google or look on Instagram for the Flybrary project. It will allow you to do it more frequently perhaps.

I'm in if y'all will accept alphlexo's instead of ep body crabs.
Edit: If it's reds, I have a better pattern than an alphlexo. would you guys prefer bead chain or dumbbell eyes?

I am a very new rookie to tying, but I'd be willing to give it a shot. I just did a swap with 6 folks in Georgia, but rather than everyone doing the same fly they had each do their favorite fly. That way each participant got 5 different pieces. I did a modified Lightbulb that worked out pretty well, but if you guys choose something like a crab or complicated pattern I'm afraid m not skilled enough for that yet.

I think about a month or so should give everyone enough time. Once we get it filled.

I think he was saying tie 12 same of your own pattern that you have luck with ... so maybe a one off clouser pattern? Something simple but often effective...

I'm in. I will tie a modified EP spawning shrimp pattern that has worked well for me in West G bay on redfish. I will start tying them tonight or tomorrow so they are ready. Donovan, I can just bring them to you if you are hosting or we can go fish and I'll give them to you then.

Yea, capped at 12 people so you are tying 11 of the same pattern and sending them to me, and then I distribute them back to everyone.

So everyone’s agreeing on a redfish pattern?
