Default Favorite Fly Swap

Would anyone be interested in a tie your favorite fly or most productive fly for the season swap.

Just wondering I seen a lot of threads on what is your favorite fly for still water or rivers or winter or whatever, and thought maybe we could do a fly swap series. Since it is winter here in the states, maybe we should start with that. So, what are your thoughts - should we do a tie your favorite winter fly swap, and then, in a couple months follow that with a favorite spring fly, etc...

i'm good for a " Favorite Fly " swap

you think we outta' tell what our favorite is or keep it quiet and thus add to the suspense?

I thing keeping it a secret would be fun, while we could have a couple people who have the same favorite, the tie, color, etc might still be different.

Let's see how much interest we get over the next week and go from there.

Talking Re: Favorite Fly Swap

i actually have my dozen ready to go.

i have a decent pattern imitative of several insects.
this is in fact my favorite

i'm tying on a nice Mustad 3134 D no.10 up eye

these hooks are probably almost as old as i am,
in fact they are most likely antiques
a little tricky to tie on but turns out nice

i think you'll like 'em

Thanks for suggesting this one Dave, it's a great idea.
