We had an outstanding Musky Fly Swap last year. I was very impressed with the problem-solving ability and the technical/artistic skills of participants in the swap. Even though these are large flies, tiers need to balance weight of the hook and amount of materials with castability. Flies need to push water and/or have a very seductive action on them.
We will continue to target the biggest of these fish, those that are 40+ inches and 20+ pounds. All flies must be tied on hooks 4/0 or larger and are due no later than March 10, 2017. They need to be toe tagged and return postage must be included.
Swap - hook size 4/0 or larger and fly must be a minimum of 6.5 inches long (participants will tie 6 flies)

Sign up by posting an "I'm in". Please specify the name of the fly and the size of the hook. I will verify with a confirming email or post. Remember to send them in a container that will hold flies of that size. If all flies are submitted early, I will sort and get them back right away. This will help us with our personal tying and planning for next year. If you have any questions, please send me an email. Last years swap was outstanding and ran very smoothly. I am looking forward seeing your efforts.
