Hey all.
 
Stay tuned.  I will be posting something later today about this year's swap.
 
I already have four participants including myself, and I will be asking J Stockards to help out again this year.
 
1.  Li'lDave - done
2.  Richard (member of my club) - received
3.  Fishing Bob - received
4.  Horsehoes - awol damn it.
5. Vicrider - received
6. Idaho RC - received
7. Adam Saarinen - received
8. Cphubert - received
9. Jburge - received
10. Retrocarp - received
11. agn54 - received
12. flatrock native - received.
 
We will again be asking for a specific set of flies from each.  Any extras will be divided up and sent through to the guys and girls hosting the retreat.
 
EDIT:
We are working on 12 flies for each lady. 
The organisers have been quite specific in their request for patterns (see below) but please do your best to stick to 12 flies for each box (a couple of nymphs, streamer, emergers, terrestrials and dries).
size 14/16 Pheasant tail nymph, hare and copper, hares ear prince nymph
Size 10/12 damsel fly nymph, baetis nymph
Size 4/6/8 Mrs Simpsons (lead wrapped for weight, in olive, brown or black). 
size 10 woolly bugger - olive and black
size 10 black/red matuka
size12/14 emergers
size 10/12 hoppers or green / brown beetles
size 12/14/16 dry flies royal wulff, caddis, stimulator dry fly, blue blow fly, parachute adams or klinkhamers
 
I am NOT asking you to examples of each, but a nice selection is what we're aiming for.
 
Please have them to me by May 31 2017.  It's a way off, but I want to make sure I get all my ducks in a row.
 
Many thanks


Edit. Huge thank you to cphubert for offering to tie the mrs simpson patterns

C'mon man, you know you can always include me, even if you can't trust our post. Just lock in what you want for flies for what water or fish and I'll do my best.

Thanks you three.



Please don't start tying until I lock in the ties. Then I'll work up due dates etc.

Question

Will the USA tiers be sending the flies to a central location, the placed into a single package for International Shipping?

Good idea Flat Rock! Maybe everyone can send their flies to me & pay $10-$15 each postage! Then i'll send all the flies to Dave from here for less then $5! Strange how postage works in differen't places!:-)

Perhaps collect all USA in one USA, then relay to Adam to relay, saving more. I am in but do not want to bump anyone and may need help with an Aussie pattern. Maybe put me on the fillin- backup list... Just willing to help out
