Surface Fly Swap - Sign Up Sheet
With apologies to Mike (for shamefully lifting his swap rules)… here are the guidelines for the surface fly swap:

1. Poppers, bangers, gurglers, sliders. You name it: if it floats, it’s in. Initially, I was thinking saltwater, but if you’re a sweetwater aficionado feel free to drop in a terrestrial pattern or – if you’re feeling up to it – a spun deerhair mouse… Use this thread to sign up.

2. Mailing deadline is February 28th. No deadline to sign up. (I’ll email/PM you my mailing address once you’ve signed up).

3. Submit 7 flies per person. Include the recipe, your return address, and $3 to cover postage, packing, etc. (If there is any change left over, we can put it into the forum).

4. Drop me an email w/ any questions.

Thanks & happy tying!

Anyone, anyone...? Looks like it's Juro and me, swappin' flies. No complaints here: suspect I'll come away with some good ones. But, I know for a fact there are those of you out there who enjoy a good surface fly... Doc D, JimW - where are you?

O.K. - I'm in!

How could I pass up the chance to get my hands on a few of Juro's bangers :lildevl:

Bump to follow Mike's lead.

Right now, we've got:


Plenty of room for anyone else!

Surface Fly Swap
Can't resist!

Gurglers for my contribution.

Best regards,

Just a reminder - still time to join the surface fly swap. Mailing "deadline" is next Monday, 2/28...

Received Grizz's flies over the weekend. Very, very nice gurglers. Extremely nice... On second thought... the box was empty, can you send 7 more?...

I'll see if I can get a picture posted here, and will do the same w/ subsequent others.

juro 02-22-2005 11:50 PM

2/28? Whoops I'd better get moving...

Tod D 02-23-2005 11:54 AM

That 2/28 is flexible! After all, the majority of striped ones are still wintering down south. Grizz's flies may be 'gently used' if we get too far into March though...!

Adrian 02-23-2005 01:21 PM

I need to get cracking also! I also have a committment on the Carp swap ....

Tod D 03-02-2005 11:45 AM

Since I've been getting a lot of grief for the 2/28 mailing deadline (ok, it's been from me...), let's follow Doogue's lead and extend the target date to 3/15...

Grizz wins the prize for prompt submitter as well as quality flytyer...

Adrian 03-02-2005 03:22 PM

Phew .....thank's Tod :smokin:

Will you be coming to Wilmington?

If you are I will bring mine with me.

grizz0707 03-03-2005 08:17 AM

Thank for the compliment but I must now thanks all of you on the forum who have shown me how and styles of the salt patterns. I would not have this knowledge without all of your help. Many,Many,Many thanks for all of this.

fish we must,

Tod D 03-04-2005 07:29 AM

Adrian et al,

I was just thinking about that last night...

I am hoping to get to Wilmington either late Saturday afternoon (Pinewood Derby in the am!), or Sunday. I'll post closer to next Friday, but that is definitely an option if folks want to hand off flies there. Even if I don't go, if JimW is there we could always arrange a hand off as we live close by.
