I agree.... 3.00 for postage or a postage paid return envelope sent with tin of flies. Hosts shouldn't have to pay costs. We would get more swaps if Hosts could see a gain in the equation. Host chooses option.

Here in the East most swaps I have been involved in the host paid the postage as well as posting pictures and descriptions of each fly for the others on the board to enjoy and most tyers involved usually send a couple of their special fly's to the host as well to try. And there are some that ask for you to include money for return shipping so I believe it would be up to the person running the swap. That being said I can whip up a few wet fly's and join in just need to know when they are needed and where to send them. If it you don't get alot of responces perhaps with the people you do have they could tie 2 fly's for each person 2 different sizes so if you have 5 people plus the host each person would tie 12 fly's.

Every swap I have been in (this one included and I am in one right now on another forum) I take two envelopes to the post office. I have them weight the two envelopes and the flies and put that postage on the main envelope, them I have them put a little more postage ( in case the others flies weigh more) on the envelope I am enclosing. I label the second envelope with my address and the swapmeisters as a return. I have always done it this way, no wonder some swaps find me weird LOL
I did host one however where they did send me $2.00 with the flies and that worked out.

Thank you Joni........ lets get this going folks. Simply send either the preposted return envelope or 3.00.

Who's in and who would like to be swapmeister?

Full Creel or Frank......Joni?

Can we have a volunteer from among our esteem forum moderators and admin.

Are we looking for 12 or ten? Should set a minimum number like ten or better. With all understanding we tye one more than that to give to swapmeister for being there to admin this thing. Foam fly 2007 went great!!! lets do it again...maybe bigger and better this year with wetflies.

I tell you what, I will be the swapmeister, because I love soft hackles or wet flies, but I want to tie also. With the one extra from every one, we make a special box and have a contest of sorts for it.
I can take pictures for this also.
I would like to get as many people as possible for this one, so lets start the list by anyone interested, posting now with what you would like to tie.
Soon as we get a good list I will let you know how many to tie and pm an address, then just send them to me with self address stamped envelope or $3.
COOL?!


Joni

At the suggestion of an unnamed party I have listed this swap on another site and invited folks from there to come here. My next step is to also list this swap on my blogs. Focusing all my contacts at other sites this way as well. I would love to see us have more than one swap per year!!

All I am going to add to this is EXAMPLE: we get 12 tiers, for each one of you, you will be getting a DOZEN different flies for $3.oo or postage to and from.
Not a bad deal! Plus I will add something extra to the mix....don't know what yet, he, he, he.
