The Swap address is out to each of the swap members in a series of PMs. Let me know if you did not receive it.

Also, don't forget to toe tag your flies and, as Eunan suggested, ship them in some form or rigid container; like an Altoids can or something similar. That way these dries won't get crushed in the USPS.

I think that pictures and step-by-steps of the flies that we tie up add a lot to a swap. I can either set up a separate thread for this in the Shared Patterns sub-forum; like John did for the Nymph Swap, or we can put them right in to this thread. My own bias is to keep everything right here in a single thread; it eliminates the need to toggle back and forth to see the member's flies. But, let me know how you'd prefer to do it and we'll go that way.

I will post a few pictures of the flies while I am tying them and when finished Allan, I'll stick them here with the others.

I'm looking at some different drake options and am wondering if there's a drake is the most widespread? If anyone wants to weigh in that's great! Figure I might as well send a fly people can use.

Got mine tied up today. Ended up tying a version of a brown drake in size 12 with a deer hair wing. Clipped the hackle on the bottom so it'll float on the surface.

Just need to print the toe tags and they'll hopefully go out next week.

Joe, toe tags can have as little of as much information as you want to include on them. Some people put their name and the name of the pattern on them; others include the recipe for the pattern as well.

What mudbug posted is fine.

Bueno!

You are way ahead of the curve, there ghocevar!

Nice looking group of Yellow Sallies! And the box looks just right for shipping those dries.

Ard, I really like the looks of the classic patterns; they're a great imitation of the natural and, as you say, they are effective on the water and great for soft presentations.

That's a nice looking Quill Gordon!

I like those Brown Drakes, William.

Drake hatches; particularly the big ones, are favorites of almost everyone where I used to fish for trout in the Pocono Mountains. My personal favorite was the Green Drake hatch; bugs large enough to lure the even the biggest trout up to the surface for a tasty meal.

You and ghocevar are so far out in the lead at this point that you're spurring the rest of us on to get our patterns tied up, pronto! That's great.

If anyone is going to do a step-by-step on their pattern, then don't forget to take some pics at different stages along the way while you're tying up your patterns........ hint, hint......
