Household Materials Swap
ColonelMel posted a topic in Fly Swaps & ContestsTHIS SWAP IS FULL! I haven't been very active on here for awhile, but with this lousy, long winter weather, can't hunt, fish, etc. So may as well host a swap. I had a crazy idea, and I hope some of you get into it. In this swap, tie any fly you want for any species, BUT only the hook and thread can be standard fly tying material. 100% of the materials used must be common materials found around the house, office, garage, basement, etc. Some ideas: cotton balls, tuff of dog hair, burlap bag, lamp pull chain, paracord, knitting yarn, flip flop foam..... you get the idea. Absolute deadline is April 30. All standard rules apply... self address return postage, toe tags. Let's keep it USA, it's just simpler on me. Open to 10 tiers. Give it some thought and after you're in give us a list of the materials you plan to use. It doesn't have to be a complicated fly, just tied with common stuff. 1.
