Something a little different maybe....
It's a bit hit and miss with postage between here and other parts of the world at the moment... As evidenced by the recent gift sent from the States that spent 4 weeks in Chicago before spending another two or three in the ether....
So why not try a virtual swap?
The theme is FLATS FLIES, and rather than tying a dozen flies, sending them to the swap master and having them delivered I ask this....
First, tie one fly, then... post your photo here with the recipe.
Once full, the other members of the swap will then have 4 weeks to tie and post a version of everyone else's pattern, sticking as close as possible or practical (some of us might fish deeper flats... some might like to fish mid water etc, and some might not have access to some materials).
Does it sound workable? I hope so... we'll start with 6 participants and if it works we can expand for the next one.
1. LI'lDave (fuzzled pseudo hair shrimp)
2. CPhubert (cinder worm)
Here is my fly.
