Flats Fly Swap
Posted 06 January 2012 - 08:12 AM
I'll limit it to 6 tyers plus my self and everyone will tie 2 sets of different flies (6ea), OR 2 sets of the same fly (so we'll tie 12 in total). Anything goes as long as it can be used on the flats.... You wont get any of yours back.
All the usual rules apply... Please send reply paid coupons if you can, or US$.. But whatever really because we'll be able to come up with something to get your sets back to you.
Due date will be to me in Australia by 14 March 2012.

It's potentially a great swap .... I reckon that the flies will arrive back on your doors just about ready for the flats season....

1) Same size and color, but one with bead chain eyes the other with lead eyes (slow and fast sinking)
2) Same color but 2 different sizes (small and large)
3) Same size but 2 different colors (bright and natural)
Please let me know what you would prefer! This will give me an excuse to order some more buck tails....

Can someone explain to me the reply coupons? Id love to get into this for my first swap. I read the rules and the information on the reply coupons but some of it dates many years back.
They give you enough for 1 2.50 stamp. Dont stress too much coz many places dont sell them any more.
Youre in if you want mate. we'll sort postage out later. Just give me the word and youre no. 4 on the list.

I'll tie the Cockroach Tarpon Fly and a Bunny Leech with dumbbell eyes for some weight (on the Bunny Leech).
