Default Years End Swap Status;

Things are going well,

The salt water swap hosted by Grassonfly is finished. The current Dry Fly swap is all but in the return mail. Below is how I would like to proceed;

As soon as Allan has the flies all in........... 'dean_mt'' aka John, will post up another swap. As soon as that is filled and the tiers are sending in their flies, 'Watson' will post and run another one. Once that one has started / filled up, and flies are being sent in, you are welcome to post a Caddis pupa swap.

On running a bunch concurrently; this is where our swaps went off track. Too many swaps, no one watching to be sure people actually turned in the flies, etc.

Another thing that happened was we had members sign on to 2 or 3 swaps at once and then hold up the entire process because they had not tied any flies by the deadline.

The current swap 'dry flies' that Allan hosted will finish in time but if you try to shorten the deadline you may find people not having the flies in on time.

I really like the idea of knowing a fly swap is going as agreed to by everyone involved before I see 2 more start up. It's easy to say, "that sounds cool count me in" but it seems that even if there are 4 or 5 weeks to get the flies made and mailed it's still close at the end.

Let's let John (dean_mt) get his swap posted and filled then move from there please.
