I think there's some confusion here.  But I think I understand the situation.  This is similar to the Christmas swap.  One member is going to get all the flies you tie.  So, you're sending them to the water with 12 flies YOU think will guarantee results.

Not 12 different flies ... since we all know it sucks to have a good fly the fish are hitting and to lose the only one !!!

Just to be clear, unlike the Christmas swap, you'll get back the box you sent flies in?

Mikechell is close...yes all your 12 flies are going to an other participant.
Those 12 need to be 6 for a 3-6wt and 6 for a 7-9wt and your favorite flies you like to fish the most.
They can all be different or 2 of this 2 of that 3 of these etc.ect
Just make sure you have 6 & 6 for each line weight group.

As an example I’m going to do 2 Bream flies,2 Crappie flies and 2 Sand Bass flies
for the 3-6 wt group. Then 3 LM Bass flies and 3 Striper flies for the 7-9wt group.
Make sense?

No...just send them in something cheap that I can forward on.
I usually send mine in a little pencil/doodad box you can get at Walmart for like $.50 or a dollar

Michael's has small tackle boxes for a buck or so in the beading section.
