Its been about a year since I have ran a swap but feel guilty not running one so i wanted to host a BWO/March Brown Swap since thise are 2 best hatches on the Tailwater that I fish. So I was thinking either 12 ppl tie your choice of either hatch- any stage. Same rules tie 12 and you dont get yours back. Due Date of March 15th so we can fish these.

SM- BWO Biot Emerger- done
1. Flytire- March Brown Nymph-received
2. Articulateflies- BWO Soft Hackle-received
3. 1Hook- March Brown Parachute-received
4. IdahoRC- BWO Dry Fly size 16- received
5. Add147- Articulated March Brown Wet Fly
6. Troutguy- Extended Body BWO-received
7. GP Flyfisher- BWO Snowshoe Sulphur- received
8. Vicrider- Classic Winged March Brown- received
9. Fishingbobnelson- March Brown Flymph-received
10. Woodenlegs- TBD- received
11. DJH 262- March Brown emerger-received
12. JokerOne- BWO CDC Cripple

Swap is Full!

Can they be 12 of the same fly or should it be a variety?

Welcome to the site.  

 

You tie 12 of one pattern, send them to ATX who sorts them.  You then get back a box of 12 flies, one each from the other tiers.

There is a thread on this forum that details the rules of a swap.

 

It can be fun ... join in !!!

Hello atxdiscgolfer!

       Hope all is well your way dude.  I am not familiar to much on the hatch cycles of things so please for give me on my ignorance.  I was think of tying an articulated March Brown "Wet Fly".  Will this type of fly fit the bill?  If so I am in!!!!

I have never seen an articulated March Brown but that is not to say that 1 doesnt exist.
