  2. for me personally, when i muck something up anywhere in the tying process, i unwind it all back to where it went wrong and start over from that point i try to make my fly look like the reference photo and recipe how you handle your situation is up to you

    Flyfishing Show

    i liked attending the "art of the angler" show in Danbury, CT but that's no longer happening the other good show was the "world fly fishing expo" at the Shriners auditorium up in Wilmington, mass sadly, both are gone
  15. we all have our limits I have always been for 12 swapper limit so it shouldn’t be a surprise Many times I have given up my position in swaps when a late comer wants in maybe I’ll just donate flies from my hoard of flies and no longer participate in swaps til they’re all gone
  16. the foam will help it float the wing will help you see it
  17. theres always "sorry, swap full"
  18. totally agree 12 is my limit. once it goes over i'm out late comers should have responded earlier if you snooze you should lose
  19. then your spools will fit https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/Rv0AAOSwz7FfTaFT/s-l500.jpg
  20. Go measure your thread spool and see if it’s close to the diameter of the tube
