I often wonder what happened to them.  A lot of the tyers I used to swap with were international swappers and the postage rates have driven them away.  We used to have many more swaps and many more swappers.  There were a few cases of dishonorable hosts that absconded with the flies, but that doesn't account for all the ones that have left.  We also had some guys that just couldn't seem to get their flies in on time, so delivery was late.  There were also a series of web site issues, which seem to have been corrected, though we lost the directory and the pattern index.  I admit, I thought about leaving a while back, but, damn it, I just love swapping flies! 

Tight Lines to all who are still tying and swapping 🐟😎

Im with you Nelson I just love tying flies and seeing the other tyers flies good and bad. I even take my travel vise and tools on vacation, as in the BS swap so I can get my flies done on time and give me something to do
