Swap is now closed
OK everyone, this swap might be some what controversial for some and for those of you that do not wish to participate in this swap that is fine. Some folks thinks the mops that you can purchase at the dollar stores are a dumb way of creating a fly. I tend to agree if all you are doing is snipping off the tassel and tying it to a hook and wrapping some sort of hackle on it. I mean come on, I know folks on this forum can do some extraordinary and creative flies using the tassel from these cheap mops. I do not care the type of color, hook, or hooks (can be articulated if you choose) are using as long as the flies are jazzed up and looks half way decent. Nothing lame which means no just tying the tassel on a hook and saying there it is!
I need 12 tiers to participate in this swap or more if extra folks want to join in and the rest do not mind. This would be an excellent swap for newbies!!! Standard rules apply, make sure you label your container and place toes tags on your flies, self addressed return envelope with the correct postage in required. If you are using a postal meter please make sure you do not place a date on the return postage because the Post Office will not mail it because the post mark date has lapsed.
I have gotten my grandmother taken care of now so I am able to get back to my tying desk which was why I had some distractions on my pervious swaps.
Remember to jazz up the mop flies up and let's see what king of imagination everyone has!!! I was thinking of a due date of April 8, 2017...Since these are a relatively simple type of fly April 8 ought to be a good due date. Hop on aboard and let's see what happens with this swap.
