Thread: Foam Flies 2008

  1. Default Foam Flies 2008

    Hey guys can we get another swap going? Full Creel are you up to it again? Last flies were great.

    Hi aroostookbasser,

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

    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,

    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.

    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
