Hi aroostookbasser,

Since the last fly swap was a Foam Fly shouldn't the next swap be something else?

Frank

Sure, just thought it would be fun to repeat the Foamer Fly thing each year. You know...07...08. But How about a "yellow sally" swap. spring is coming and everybody tyes and uses some variation of the "YS" everywhere.

Maybe something a bit broader, say a dry fly or soft hackle swap? Let me know what is decided and you can most likely count me in.
Thanks,
Terry

Hi to all,

Terry, I think that is a good idea. That gives the tyer a chance to send their best fly in a certain type.

aroostookbasser, for the same reason if we specify a Yellow what ever some tyers may not be able to tye one. Lets give tyers of all levels a chance to participate. A fly swap should not be just for expert tyers.

Maybe I am wrong so lets hear from other members who might participate.

Frank

Hi fyshstykr,

I don't think a fly swap should be about quality. You may tye a very ugly fly that catches fish. If I received a fly and liked the design I could tye my own at what ever quality I want. Joni recently posted a big old flat fly that was weird but after seeing it I think I might want some. It had a great profile and that is much more important than the quality of the tye. Not to say that the Joni fly was not a quality tye. Just using it as an example.

Frank you sweet talker, you notice I pick flies for the tutorial that are really hard to see what I am doing....there is a reason LOL

I am in, don't forget Chironomids, anyone can tie them and they are a 3/4 year food source.
I also like the soft hackle idea.

I might be able to contribute---whats a chironomid?---just joking---i saw them when i fished hoppers, streamers and nymphs fishing the Delores (my only trip out west)

most of my stuff for trout were mayfly hatches in Pa and Michigan---now its about 80% saltwater--10% steelhead---10% everything else
