Default Re: Time To Talk About Some New Fly Swaps;

Something like a forum masters swap, where we pit Ard and Laurie and Gary and Eunan and Kelly and kbranch and wovenstonefly and others against each other (if I left you out there it's more because this was becoming a vicious run-on sentence...)? Sounds fun to watch

Sign me up for Level 1

As far as swaps go, I don't really care about the quality of flies I receive back. I tie flies for my own enjoyment and send them off with the hope that they will be successful for those individuals who receive them. All I ask is for the same thought processes in return, and I know that I have sent off some pretty haggard flies in the past. In fact, I'd love to see an element of the fly swaps related to on-the-water success, where people show (or tell) what fish they caught on flies that they received in a swap. I know that one of my best fish to date came on a wiggle-stone that Eunan tied, and I know that I was excited to pass on to a friend the fact that it was his caddis pattern that caught me the majority of my fish in Sweden.
