Standard looking for 12 people to tie fits in 3 different categories, bait fish, creature/ attractor, and floating.
This will be fly and materials swap, include the materials for one fly of your pattern to go to another swapper. Hook sizes will be size 4 up to a 2/0. Each swapper sends out 12 flys and material for one and will receive 12 back and material for someone else's pattern. As a bonus I have a knife blade I forged out of an old punch I will complete it and draw a name out of a hat to pick the winner if you're under 18 and win please have a parent/guardian contact new with permission you send it to you. Due date August 25.

Put me in the baitfish category please but can you explain the material part a little more? Do we include hooks or thread with the material? If I use bucktail, should I include a whole bucktail? I might be overthinking this but haven't done a swap with materials before.

I've got questions about your forging also but flies first

if you do bucktail just cut a little extra for one fly off and wrap it with thread or a rubber band so it stays together and hooks yes please send one of those I think everyone will have some thread close enough to make the pattern work. 

 

got both of you signed up.
