Sign-Up Sheet for the Monster Fly Swap

Please respond to this thread if you would like to participate in this swap.

Here are the rules:
1. Seven flies per person is all it takes to be a part of this swap. One goes to the meister or to the raffle at the Wilmington show - depending on how much I like the flies!

2. There is no deadline to sign-up for this swap.

3. The deadline for mailing the flies to me is February 28th, 2005. Please enclose $3 with your flies to cover return shipping costs.

4. Please send your address with the flies so that I can mail an awesome assortment of giant flies back to you.

5. If possible, please send recipes and tying instructions with your flies. If you do then I promise to put together a web page (posted here or elsewhere) that contains all of the patterns - with tying instructions.

Remember that this is a swap for flies that mimic monster herring or other baitfish patterns. For example, I will most likely tie a Sedotti Slammer that is roughly 8 inches long.

I am getting psyched to start tying again!

-Mike

Feb 28th, I can handle that. I'll either go with buffies or the slammer. I know how to tie buffies but recently have become very interested in Sedotti's pattern with the keel. I plan on catching his demo at the show. I'll post the pattern here.

Mike, Thanks for organizing this.

Mike, I would add for the rules that each participant enclose a couple dollars for mailing costs ... If you need to buy small boxes and stamps, each mail back can cost $3 or$4 ....AND don't forget the extra fly for the Meister... the meister obviously keeps the fly or they become part of the collection that we raffle off at the Wilmington show.. so it is really 7 flies...but 6 for the actual swap....just two points I thought I would add to help...

Thanks for the advice John.

JimW - I added you to the list. And I love the slammer. I don't fish as much as many of you on the board but I have caught my best fish of the year for the past 2 years on slammers. Then again I fish with them during most of my outings in May and early June.

I know the Sean McDermott likes them too. He has enjoyed good luck with them in RI.

Maybe I will tie some slammers in black for the swap. I tied up some awesome night slammers last year. They really move some water and they have a nice black profile.

-Mike

GregD and CascoBay: I received your excellent flies.

GregD with the huge squid and CascoBay with the herring that he photographed for an earlier post.

Looking good.

Thanks.

Hey Mike,

Glad the flies made it OK. I re-loaded on Craft fur yesterday and will crank out the last two this week. Jim, I promise I won't hold up the migration much longer ;-).

Thanks,
Greg.

Hey Mike,

I finished up the last 2 and will be sending them out right away. Perhaps I 'll find a nice big pattern that isn't quite so time consuming next time.

Thanks,
Greg.
