1. Flies will be tied according to the specific rules of the swap.
(Dry fly, Wet fly, Nymph, streamer, Etc.)
2. (Toe tag flies) each fly will need to have a small piece of paper attached to the bend of the hook with the swappers name on it. (This makes it easy for swapmister to divide up prier to being sent back)
3. Flies will be mailed in a crushproof box. Altoids cans are perfect (Please no expensive Trout fly cases)
4. Box will be sent to swapmister (with a stamped self-addressed envelope)
(Do not put postage money in envelope)
5. Flies will be mailed before deadline date.

Due to a recent incident with a swapmeister we are instating a new rule for swaps on this site.

Swapmeisters will now only be allowed to host one swap at a time. You can host as many as you want through out the year, but no more than one at a time.

This new rule is simply to protect the members/swappers from being involved with a SM that may not have the ability to uphold his commitment to the swappers.

Thank you
