Well, Guys, it's been a little while since I hosted a swap & it's time for me to get back to it. But, as usual, I've come up with a swap with a bit of a twist. Recently I received in the mail a bit of advertising with an offer that if you sign up, you would get a set of flies. As I looked at the flies, I realized that this is a set that every fly fisherman should have in his box. So, I had the idea of doing a swap were each swapper would end up with at least 1 of each of these classic flies. That's where the twist comes in. I'm going to list the patterns and each swapper can choose which one they want to tie. That means that the first ones to join can choose from all the flies and the last ones in have to pick what's left over. The advantage to signing up early is obvious. All the usual swap rules apply. Toe tags, SASE, Internationals welcome with postage reimbursed through PayPal. There are some pretty basic flies in the set & some that are more difficult to tie. So there is an opportunity for the really experienced tiers to show us what you can do and also an opportunity for the "Newbies" to get your feet wet. Anyone and everyone is welcome. If you've never been in a swap, here's your chance. If you're an elite tier, pick one of the tougher flies, although none of there are really hard to tie. I'm going to pick a pattern I've never tied, but if someone wants to trade patterns with me, let me know. I'm sure we can work something out. I want everyone to be able to pick a pattern that they would enjoy tying. When you sign in, tell me which pattern you have chosen to tie and I'll put your name beside that pattern. You're not officially in until you tell me which pattern you want. The due date will be Feb 25th. So, who wants which fly?
WE ARE NOW FULL! THE SWAP IS CLOSED!
