Trout fly swap?
 
Is anyone interested in a trout fly swap?

Hawkeye 11-06-2001 10:20 AM

I would be very interested though I haven't tied trout flies in a loooong time and I was never very good at it. If I keep it simple I shouldn't embarrass myself too bad. :)

Dble Haul 11-06-2001 10:21 AM

Count me in. I'm interested. :-)

Count me in!

How many?
One pattern or various patterns?
Wet, dry or streamer?
Extra fly for the swapmeister (tradition)

Hawkeye, The simplest flies are the best IMHO.

Since I started the topic I'll volunter as the meister. I was thinking that we could do it like the striper fly swaps and tie six then mix and match. It doesn't matter to me if they are wet's dry's or streamers.

juro 11-06-2001 11:12 AM

You da' meister!

Six various it is, and one for da' meister of course. Let me know if you need photo / scanner help so we can post the recipes and images in the archive.

Please excuse my ignorance, but when you say to tie six flies for mix and match, do you mean to tie six of the same pattern that will be distributed among everyone, or six different patterns?

Sorry for the dumb question.

How the swap works is that you submit six flies of your choice and receive six back. They can be six of the same pattern or six different patterns, although six of the same pattern is easier to photograph.
I am assuming that we will get more than six people. That being the case, the flies you get back will be a random mix of the flies tied by the other tiers.

I hope this helps clear up the "mix and match " question.

Juro, I should be able to handle the pictures without a problem. I just need to know the file formats, image sizes, etc you would like them in.

Dble Haul 11-06-2001 12:21 PM

Thank you for the clarification. I suppose that I'll tie six of the same pattern, or three each of two patterns. Just say when they're due and where to send 'em to, and I'll start.

Yeah, like I need an excuse to tie flies.

Sounds Like a good idea to this guy from the shores of the Pacific and the province of British Columbia.
Will send two of the never fail patterns For our wild and warey Kamloops Trout. I am in for 6.

Dave, to me at least, it doesn't matter what size or type if it catches fish.

How does mid February sound to everyone as a date to get the flys done by? I'll send an e-mail to everyone with my shipping info, etc in a couple of days.

Dble Haul 11-07-2001 01:39 PM

Mid-February sounds fine to me, although my flies will be ready much sooner than that. I have a lot going on, so I'll tie them up sooner than later.

John Desjardins 12-06-2001 01:29 PM

Boy have I let this go without following up :o . The people signed up for the fly swap are:
Hawkeye
Juro
Dbl Haul
Salt Ron
DFix
and myself

Anyone else out there interested. I'll get the e-mail with info out this evening.
