This Swap Is Full
 
This swap is for 12 swappers plus the Swapmeister. You will tie 12 flies and not get back one of your own. Extras, as always, are absolutely NOT required but appreciated. The flies will be tied from Deer Hair, Elk Hair, etc. If you want to tie stacked and trimmed deer hair, that's up to you. But flies such as "Madam X," "Humpy" and Elk Hair Caddis are also fair game. As is a Rat Faced McDougal. The only requirements as far as the pattern is concerned is that it has to have hair and it has to float.
 
When you have your flies ready, let me know and I will PM my address to you. Send your flies, with toe tags, in a crush proof box along with a Self-Addressed, Stamped Envelope for me to send your set of 1 each of everyone else's flies back to you. If you've never swapped before, you are certainly welcome to join this one, but there will be some experienced tyers in on this one as well. 
 
The due date is May 15, so that gives you just over a month to get them tied and mailed to me. 
 
Thanks
 
BB

Since I'll be needing them for spring, I'm in with Nelson's Caddis.

Great! Flytire, Vicente, Fishingbobnelson, Dflanagan, Vicrider, Bassbugn, & Professori; you are all in! And welcome. Glad to have you all to join us.

Couple of trivia questions. First, Flytire, are you or were you a sailor?

And Fishingbobnelson, are you the creator of the Nelson’s Caddis.

Thank you all for joining.
