I've recently participated in my first fly swap through another fishing forum. It has been a lot of fun tying flies for others and I want to see if people from troutnut would want to participate in a fly swap.

General idea would be 10-12 participants tie up some of their favorite flies along a theme (e.g. baetis, midges, streamers). They tie 1-4 flies for each participant (exact # depending on size/time for each fly), mail them out to me along with self addressed envelope, I divide up flies for each participant and mail them back out.

It's a fun way to get motivated to tie and to see what others can do. If there is enough interest, I can put together a more detailed rule set and we can decide on a theme.

thanks

Keegy, I'm in for a fly swap after the beginning of the year. It's just way too hectic at work right now.
