Fly Tying

Inspire a Tier Nymph Swap

Recommended Posts

Swap is full.


Thanks to all for inspiring the young ones--they're the future.


So, I have a 9-year-old nephew who's been bitten by the fly-tying bug. Big time. When I told him about swapping flies with other tiers he really lit up. Now, he tells me he's ready to give it a go (I've seen his flies and agree).


Here's what I'd like to do... Let's swap a favorite nymph, but try to choose a pattern that can inspire a young tier--not too complex, and using materials that won't break a 9-year-old's allowance budget. His name is Aedan and he'll be submitting a Prince Nymph.


First 10 with an "I'm in," and we'll give it a go. All standard swap rules apply. Due date is June 9.


(Yes, he's underage for swap participation, but it's been cleared by admin since he'll be under my supervision.)


Let's have some fun and inspire a tier!

I can't resist the opportunity to help out an aspiring child. Will tie a copper john of some sort. I admire his ambition with tying the prince nymph for this swap. Actually one of my least favorite nymphs to tie, those biot wings drive me up the wall.
