Looks like enough interest so far so Ill host an other one seeing how the last one went so well.

The Criteria/ Rules are:
4 Top Water Flies
4 Streamer/Baitfish Flies
4 Bottom Bouncing Flies

All geared towards Warm Water Species or Inshore Salt Water.

The only pattern restrictions are no:
Woolley Buggers
Clousers
Simple Foam Spiders...other foam patterns are fine.

No size restrictions...but I would suggest you make it User Friendly in that you tie some that can be cast on panfish sized rods and some that can be cast on bass sized rods, but thats up to you.

Once again really vauge open swap. Show us your best stuff that you like fishing.

Standard swap rules apply, Go read them if you dont know them.

Please do not make me stand in line at the post office by Including money or paying me by PayPal for your shipping.

Your package should be like this:
A226_C4_CE_4396_4963_AEA3_86_BDD909440_E

Heres the deal
Everyone will tie 12 flies and put them in some kind of box that I can forward on to the next guy with your Screen Handle on that box!!!!

No need to toe tag flies on this swap.

Unless you include extra flies for everybody that you want me to distribute to each participant, then those flies need a toe tag so they know where they came from.

I will throw all the names in a hat, draw a name and youll get that participants 12 Flies.

I need at least 10 to do this and I listed 12 but its open to as many who want to join in.

Cut off join date is: 4-30
Due date to me is 5-31

And once again Ill be including some Poppers in the Raw and some tying materials.
Ill also do a bonus fly drawing again sometime during the swap.

Looking forward to it.
Thank you
Mike

Lol zip.  With all the talent in this swap..it would be unfortunate for you to get more of my haphazard attempts at flies.
