    Default It's Fly Swapping Time Again !

    Hello Everyone,

    As many know, we stopped the fly swaps in the spring so that everyone could quit worrying about deadlines and go fishing. Now for some the season is passing due to regulations or weather and you'll have plenty of excess tying energy to burn off

    SO................. You Swap Masters out there, if you want to keep hosting the swaps let me know. If you want a break I'll round up some new talent and away we'll go.

    Let's try to get some feed back to either Larry or I before October 1'st and make that the start of the swapping season.

    Ard

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Twelve people sign up for the swap. It has a theme like trout dries or rabbit strip streamers or whatever. Each person ties a dozen of the pattern they choose in the theme and mails them to one person who sends each person one of each fly back.

    Thanks for the re-welcome guys! What about a migratory salmonid streamer swap, ranging from classic speys to zonker strips to intruders and such? I have been binging on tying flies for swinging for lake run fish and would love an excuse to share.

    He blames his ipad for not being on the forum :P

    I need some good vibes from a swap...so I'll probably jump back in on them as well.
