Default Re: Salt Water Swap

I'd like to suggest that if we don't get any more than .. say, 6 participants,... we double down to make this worth while.

Maybe....
  • Two of the same flies....or
  • Two of the same, but different colors
  • two of different styles
For a total of a 10 (8 at this point) flies each.
What da ya think ?

Sure that works. let see if anyone jumps in, and if not we'll each do two.

Good idea!

OK sounds good--

Since we have 6 people, why don't we each tie 10 flies.

They can be all the same pattern if you've already tied them, or if you want, 5 each of 2 different patterns, either "named" patterns or your unnamed killer creations.

Each person will get 10 flies back, 2 from each of the 5 other people.

I originally threw out May 1 as the due date to give people plenty of time, but if they're in sooner they'll go out sooner. Send them in when you're ready.

Everybody should have my address.
