    Larry:

    I was going to wait to sign up, so others would have a chance, just like iatrouter. If no one else wants in, I'll gladly fill up the slot.

    Thanks.

    Are we talking topwater as in bass / panfish flies or topwater as in any fly that sits on the surface. I love these swaps and might be willing to throw in a couple balsa poppers if we're talking bass type topwater.

    Tie up anything you want that is top water (versus nymphs, streamers, etc).

    If it's not full, I'll give it a shot. This will be my first fly swap. Looking forward to the challenge.

    Please let me know the details.

    I'm thinking maybe gurglers in a flavor similar to this one.

    Well at first I thought I would tie up some gurglers but now I think im going to tie up some Pole dancers. I've always wanted to tie some of these and I think I can finally give it a try.



    looks a little like this

    For those of you that haven't participated in a swap and are curious in how it works: We normally will limit the number of participants to 12 tiers, each tier will tie 12 flies (the pattern is your choice as long as it is the category that everyone decides on, in this case anything top water). Upon completion, put paper toe tags on each fly to identify the fly name and/or tier. Then send the flies in a "padded" envelope to me with a couple dollars to help cover return postage or include a self addressed "padded" envelope with postage already included or a couple of dollars to cover the postage. Once I have everyone's flies, I will distribute one fly from each tier to all the participants so in the end you will receive 12 flies back (one from each of the other tiers, plus one of yours). I hope that makes sense. Also, please do not send in used flies, believe it or not, we had that happen in the past. Normally, tiers will send their flies in a small container like an Altoid tin box or something similar to protect the flies. Also, please post up a recipe of your top water fly pattern when you have completed the swap, I will use that to start another post with all the recipes/photos, thanks!

    Tiers that are signed up:
    1. Realispatt......Pattern TBD
    2. Tail of the pool.......Greased Liner
    3. Peter hanman......Pole dancers
    4. Pjcalla......Pattern TBD
    5. Akcrimson......Pattern TBD
    6. Jonathan creason......Gurglers
    7. R reese......Pattern TBD
    8. Kcjerryd......Pattern TBD
    9. S fontinalis......Foam hoppers

    I think I fish, in part, because itís an anti-social, bohemian business that, when gone about properly, puts you forever outside the mainstream culture without actually landing you in an institution. ĖJohn Gierach

    What kind of hopper are you doing? I was going to tie up some chubbies, but I'll do something different if it's too close to your pattern.
