Chiro/Buzzer Swap

Recommended Posts

OK...first time for a swap now that I am in WA.

 

12 flies due to me by 1 May and you won't get your own back. Any more than 12 will be considered swapmiester gratuity and retained. Other than that, normal swap rules apply.

 

I'm cool with international swappers as long as they include some dollars to cover return postage. My post office is in hicksville and they will not take the coupon even though I have protested many times.

 

Reply with "I'm In" and state your pattern or TBD. Thanks for joining.

 

Big E - Mirage Buzzer

1. Dezod - Garcias Rojo Midge

2. David Legg - Bloody Midge

3. Firetiger - Czech buzzer

4. Flytire - TBD

5. Jeremy Parker - TBD

6. Caddis Cowboy - Bi-colored brassie

7. Cencalfly - TBD

8. Brian Myers - Black Sally

9. Bigdewy - BH Chiro

10. Rockworm - TBD

11. Professori - DH Chiro

12.

I'm in, green brassie

Jeremy

I have no problem with 13, or even up to 20 if you want to let sully in.

My bad. Sjo got the 12th spot. Please do not extend the # of tiers. I can wait for another swap.

 

Later...

BigE - Send me your address please. I have never tied these double head chironomids before, but I got started and they looked so I good, I couldn't stop. Hope you like them as much as I do (I am now busy filling up my flybox with a few varieties of DHCs)

Big E,

Never did tell you what I was tying. How about a WD-40.

 

 

Well actually I tied a batch of WD-40s :rolleyes: Need an addy. :)

 

Thanks for hosting,

 

Jim

Chironomids come in all kinds of sizes. Here in British Columbia,99% of all chironomid fishers fish lakes (and 99 % of lake fly fhishers are fishing chironomids at some point!) and we are usually fishing size 10 - 16.
