Smallmouth/Largemouth Monthly Swap - APRIL

Recommended Posts

For April, those of us in the SMB/LMB tying club are going to be tying Crayfish. Anything goes, just remember to make this big enough that bass aren't going to laugh at it!

 

All swap rules apply:

* Send your flies in a container that is crushproof. Keep in mind that some of these flies may be larger than the ones you send in. Please send an appropriate size container.

*Toetag your flies with your screen name and the name of the fly. Also put on there "LMB/SMB Club" because it will help keep these flies separate from any other swaps.

* Include a self addressed stamped envelope for the return of your flies. Please do NOT send something that is metered. You must use real stamps or the post office will not accept it. I know, stupid rule on their part, but we have to follow it.

* Either post the recipe here or PM it to me. I will, each month, photo each fly and put the recipe with it on this thread.

Is there any possibility of adding another tier to the list?

Did you PM the host of the swap? I would start that way.

Ratdz,

 

Some people have already sent in flies for the months ahead, so adding another person would really complicate things. We decided to keep this small this year since it is the first year. Next year maybe we can do 10 swappers each month...

Thanks for the info. Glad to hear that there are actually swaps where people are on the ball. Every swap I've been in, there is always someone who drops out, or can't get their flies in on time.

Hopefully I can get in on this swap next time.
