Hi Buzz,

I moved this into the Tenkara threads because the Tenkara folks are their own little group. If you can get some interest for a swap please follow the basic format we use on all the others. Good luck,

Ard

I'd join you but have felt I have too many moving parts in life right now. When you talk about a Tenkara swap are you focusing on the reverse hackle (Sakasa Kebari) style flies? Personally I've used most of the same trout flies with my Tenkara rod that I do with my other fly rods.

yep, Sakasa Kebari style. I just wanted to have a reason to tie some, so I did.

It's sort of interesting, a goodly number of folks I know who fish tenkara tend to only fish a pattern or two. They find they are successful without having a need to constantly change flies. I know my fly box is pretty boring to look at.

That being the case, they may not have a particular interest in amassing a broad collection of flies like many reeled anglers do. That might explain the lack of interest in a swap. Of course, that may have nothing to do with anything.

Just a thought.
