Material Swap??
Would anyone be interested in a fly tying material swap? Group or one on one.
I like to use different materials that i have never used before so this would give an oppotunity for us all to try something new.

Let me know if there is any interest.

Re: Material Swap??
I would be interested in a 'material swap', hopefully a few more will express an interest.
What materials have you got in mind?

Re: Material Swap??
Would be interested in this as well. I have muskrat skins for making dubbing. Willing to subdivide skins into baggies for swap. Each baggie holding enough fur to sheer and blend to tie 40 or 50 flies. (3x3 patch or there abouts)

Re: Material Swap??
Any type of material would be great. the usual types or off the wall is also good because you never know where you will find material to tie with. I have found a few different colors of antron in the weirdest places.

Re: Material Swap??
If there isn't any mor response, we can do a small one.

Re: Material Swap??
fyshstykr - we live close enough that we can swap at the any time.

aroostookbasser - we can do a one-to-one swap.

What do you guys have in mind for the swap?

Re: Material Swap??
Would like to see a moderator come in and monitor......collect the materials and forward as with a regular swap. All of us agreeing to put so much into the swap. Say ten traders.... ten bags of dubbing/skin patches....vs ten spools of ????? and so on. I have swapped elsewhere and the swaps were all like that. Each participant agreeing to supply a fixed amount of material.

?????? What ???????

Re: Material Swap??
I'd also like to join this material swap.
I think I still have some tanned hides from Alaska: Moose, beaver, wolf, elk, etc.

Re: Material Swap??
Since I brought this one up, i will be in charge. We need a count on who all will be participating and what you can contribute. Post it here or PM me and I will add you to the list.

What does everyone think for a due date. How about August 1 to have your material mailed to me.
