  1. I've had an idea for a series of swaps and wonder if you guys would be interested. What I'm thinking about is a series of swaps that all involve a certain type of fly. If you can tie one pattern of a certain type, tying others in that type isn't that much different. So what I'm thinking about is starting with a Nymph Swap. It has to be the standard type of Nymph such as the Pheasant Tail Nymph etc that has an abdomen, a thorax, ribbing, a shell case, and perhaps gills on the sides. The second fly in the series would be a soft hackle, the third would be a wet fly. From there we could go to bead head, classic dry fly, parachute, streamer, etc. This would NOT be a swap club. Each swap would be a stand alone, and you would have to sign up for each future swap if you wanted to continue. But it also means that you could take a turn off if you know you're going to be busy that month, or even drop out between swaps if you so choose. The due dates would give each tyer plenty of time to get their flies done. Now that we've just seen what the people in the Trout Invitational could do, it's time for the rest of us to work on our skills. So the challenge is going to be to tie up a set of 12 flies that are as near alike as possible. You might end up tying 18 or more, just to have 12 that are close. So this is a serious commitment to improve your skills. Your set will be photographed and posted on the forum for everyone to see, so you've got to work at it. And I may ask the Invitational Tyers to take a look at the pictures and give suggestions. Each swap is open to the first 12 tyers who ask to join. I'll try to give returning swappers a "heads up" so if you want to continue, you will know when to look for the next swap to be posted. All standard rules apply. SASE's & Toe Tags are required. The swap will be open to 13 tyers, and you will tie up 12 flies and not get back one of your own. You should have plenty from all your culls. The swap is open to anyone. The due date for the Nymph Swap will be December 15, which gives you just over two months. So sign up and get started tying. BB 1. Breambuster - SM - Green Drake Nymph - Completed 2.
