Default 2018 Injun Joe Memorial Fly Swap

Last year we lost a good friend while he was doing what he loved, flyfishing. Brent loved a good swap and joined every one I ever hosted, I believe. This swap is dedicated to his memory. Sign up will be until Feb 1st at which time the swap will close and the tyin begins. I will list participant user names in this post as each joins.

This swap will be themed as your go to winter time nymph.
Here are the rules.
Each participant will tie one fly for each other participant. In essence, if there are a total of ten members, you will tie nine flies of the same pattern.

All flies will be mailed to me, the host, by March 15th. At that time I will sort the flies and mail them back to you. You should receive nine different flies back.

Each package mailed to me will be mailed in a durable box or padded mailer. It must contain a pre-addressed postage paid mailer to ship the sorted flies back to you. I should not have to pay for your postage.

The flies are usually mailed in a crush proof container like an Altoid tin. But being this is a nymph swap, this is less important than it would be if it was for dry flies.

Flies received after deadline will be mailed back to you. I am usually flexible and will extend the deadline if someone is struggling with time. If you must drop out please notify me by PM and I will tie replacement flies. That said, please commit some time to complete your tying if you decide to join this swap.

When you are ready to mail, PM me for my address.

When I receive your flies, I will photograph one and post a picture here. I will also place a "received" by your name in this first post.

Fly swaps are for any Woody's member regardless of tying experience. It is a great way to practice tying and no one will make light of your flies. Just remember, ugly flies catch fish and all of mine are ugly!

If you have any questions, PM me or post it up.

Now who is in?

So we can tie any winter nymph we want? Do we need to say what we are going to tie or just let it be a surprise?

You can tie any nymph you want and you can announce the pattern if you want as well. You want in?
