It's just a little slip of paper, stuck through the hook point, that usually includes the tyers name and the name of the fly.

I like to include my e-mail address also so that anyone can get a hold of me if needed. SOmetimes I will also add the recipe for the fly if it is simple.

Well, I have toe tagged my flies for all the swaps I am in and I thought I would post a pic of my toe tagged fly. Maybe someone will find this pic helpful. I am anxious to get the flies back from the swaps to see how everyone else toe tagged their flies.

If I have any I use address labels, and add the fly name. (Pming the recipe to the swapmeister.)

Do something like this:

Plowser- Size 4
BigCliff
Saltwater Swap '09

Set it up in a word file with like 8pt font, copy and paste it a dozen times, put two spaces between each, and print it off. When you cut them up, leave extra paper off to the right, double it over, and stick the hook through both layers. (Going through two layers makes it much less likely that the tag will come off.)
