Dry Fly Swap - Return In Mail

Recommended Posts

Someone mentioned that we need a dry fly swap so here we go.  We'll keep it trout centered with any style good.  Standard swap rules apply (see pinned post at top); toe tags with tiers forum name and pattern name, please include return postage or funds to cover such.   Let's limit it to 12 tiers.  That's a total of twelve flies tied and sent in.  Respond with "I'm in"  to be included in the swap. Due date will be May 1, 2023.  If a later date is necessary let me know and we can make adjustments.

New swappers and/or tiers are encouraged to join.  Many beginner to intermediate tying level dry flies out there.  If you need suggestions feel free to ask.  I'm sure someone will be pleased to give you ideas and maybe some suggested tying method or instruction.  Materials for many patterns are easily substituted and there is rarely anything exotic. 

Dries are good fly style for new tiers to learn.  Also, takes on the swing are great, nymphing can be subtle; however, there's nothing like a top water take. Watching a fish rise and take your offering either in a subtle sip or splashy rise is best. IMHO

TIA for joining.

I'm in and probably do a H&L Variant. If it was good enough for Dwight Eisenhower, the last real president, it should be good enough for us, though I'm sure the ones tied for him by R.C. Coffman that paid for his House and Lot (thence the name) were nicer than anything I'll tie but I'll give it my all.

edit...After doing some checking it should really be "hence the name" and not thence.

To be clear, no style or material restrictions, as long as its a dry?

If you’ll have me, I would like to tie :
 

Parachute PMD

I may tie them in Yellow, cause wow!, they can be deadly in yellow.

Why not.  This type of fly is sort of alien to me.  A learning opportunity.   TBD.
