Had a few folks show interest in a carp fly swap so here it is! Sorry for the faux Irish but alliteration is fun, craic means fun, and this swap should be fun. biggrin.png

Looking for the usual 12 swappers. Usual rules apply. Tie twelve of your favorite carp fly and you'll get twelve back from the other tiers/tyers/flyers... I'll leave it open until the 21st of this month and the due date will be May 15.

I'll start us off with Jay Zimmerman's backstabber fly. Looking forward to seeing what you all come up with.

SM: Backstabber

Lots of things are craic. It just depends on what kind of stuff you are into. It's really hard to answer that question for you. It's sort of something that you need to ask yourself.

 yep...what's craic

It's a bastardized version of the original Scottish/English "crack." Means fun, news, gossip, entertainment, etc. Couldn't come up with another word that went well with carp except cra.....anyway.

 

Also, you're in.
