Switch Out 2-fly Swap

Recommended Posts

I'm in. Leisenring's Pale Watery Nymph and Parachute Light Cahill/PMD. 

IMHO 6 tiers would be better than 12 but I'm in either way.  Given that there is only 2 weeks before the total number of swappers is locked in and the flies are due.

If everyone would consider this two swaps then you’re only tying 12 flies 

I hope this thing goes one way or the other.  I've started tying my contribution up. 

Here's how I see it.  Seems daunting but if you're able to put fly to water or know someone who can, pick something that you'll/they will use.  That's what I did.  If not all are sent in then hopefully they'll be used to educate a fish or two.

Why not lock at 6 tyers making it a dozen flies. 24 is a lot of flies and I would not be happy with that many myself though I'd try to do it. Prefer knowing it's only a dozen.

 

I guess I'll go with this idea.  So the minimum and maximum is the same number.  Like I said this is only the 3rd time in 12 years of hosting that I've offered a 2-fly swap and I guess I'm 1,1, and 1 in the wins/losses column.   Thanks for helping give this swap a chance to run.

👍  Good decision, sign me up.  But if it goes over 6, I will give up my slot.  

My thinking: Swaps on this site are pretty active, and seem to be getting more so, which is good, I love it.  It seems we always have at least 2 or 3 going on at one time, also good.  I prefer a 2 fly swap over a 1 fly swap.  That said, I would rather join two different swaps @ 12 flies/swap, than one swap @ 24 flies.  Spreads the wealth, so to speak.  

Any old who.  

Right now I'm thinking a Grizzly King streamer/ nymph or Patriot dry/streamer pattern, but will update with a final verdict after going through what I have on hand.

Just 2 more tyers needed to close this swap.  Please note the edited rules for this swap - now we need to tie only 6 original and 6 changeling flies for a total of 12 flies for this swap and registration will close at 6 tyers.

Good morning, Kim!

I'm long overdue for joining one of your swaps.  Put me down as tyer #5.  Not 100% sure what I'll do yet, but probably something warmwater (Predator to Panfish).  Gurgler or some variety of streamer are the most likely options.
