Fly Swap Sign Up

Thread starter #1

This is the fly swap rules and sign up thread. If you are interested in participating in a fly swap, please respond to this thread. I will update the swap member list until sign up deadline.

Rules. You must sign up before 11/9/08(2 weeks).
The fly you tie is up to you.Any pattern you wish.Tie only one pattern.Fresh or saltwater flies accepted.
You will need to tie one fly for every member in the swap but yourself(10 members 9 flies).
Do not tie something different for each member.
So if your pattern is an Adams,tie an Adams for each member.
Toe Tag each fly with fly name and your board name.
Toe tags are little slips of paper with the info written on them.
Push the hook point thru the toe tag so there is one for each fly.
Flies must be received by me by 11/23/08.
Flies must be mailed to me in a crush proof container(Altoid Tins are great for this).
Included in this package, mailed to me, must be a return pre-addressed mailer with sufficient postage to mail it back to you. I use 4x6 or 6x8 padded mailers from Wal-Mart. Usually $2 worth of postage for the return mailer is more than plenty.
I suggest buying two mailers one larger than the other. Mail fly container and return postage affixed mailer in the larger of the two. I will return the flies to you in your container as soon as all are received. I will PM my address to each of the members.If everyone is OK with it I will post a picture of your fly contribution in a Swap pic thread. So who's in?And what will you tie? You may decide what you'll tie at a later date just let us know if you want to join.

For any new tiers (tyers?) swaps are a great way to get some practice and learn to tie a particular pattern. Any and all are welcome.

Too soon

I think this is a really cool ideal and would participate but I have not gotten in far enough to start tieing my own flies yet.

Ya'll have fun, maybe I can get in on the next round.
