Panfish Swap With A Twist
ColonelMel posted a topic in Fly Swaps & ContestsBreambuster is hosting a swap based on an ad that said every fly fisherman should have 13 basic flies in his box, and each tier picked one of those 13 patterns. I fish a lot of ponds for bluegill, and after consulting Breambuster, I'm stealing his concept with the twist being towards panfish. After extensive research (I googled Top Panfish Flies), a found an article from Fly Fisherman Magazine by Skip Morris (October 17, 2016), listing what he says are the best panfish flies. I tried to search the pattern database to make certain all the patterns were listed, but I had trouble getting results. There are a couple I'm not sure about, but we'll find the pattern if necessary. So, just like Breambuster's swap, each tier will pick one of the 10 patterns and tie nine of it. The first nine tiers to claim a pattern are in. All the usual rules apply: toetags, SASE, etc. I haven't hosted that many swaps, so let's keep this one to USA only. Deadline: I must receive them by February 28. The Ten Best Panfish Flies Are: Popper: djh262-Received Sponge Spider: vcrider-Received Predator: Breambuster-Received F-C Mackie Bug: dflanagan-Received J's Grinchworm: Colonel Mel-Completed SMP: bertgwen-Received Carrot Nymph: wmw4:Recieved Woolly Worm: vicente-Received Clouser Minnow: Kudu-Received 10 Fat Head Diver: Mike West-Received SWAP IS CLOSED If I missed anything, let me know.
