Fly Swap Discussion

I would like to start the off season with the next series of fly swaps...With the first ending by Xmas. I am placing this post here to make sure we get maximum views ,but will use the archive to follow up... I wanted to get opinions on what we do this year, what the level of participation would look like, and what "themes" people would like to do.. Last year we picked some basic groups... and I am not sure we finished the last swap on"Original Flys"... How do you want to proceed? Can we improve on anything? I thought the maximum of 6 flies worked well and did not make it a burden... and the time lines , as a result. were workable... any thoughts on these issues?... and what fly would everyone like to start with?...or do we start with a free for all type fly? Thanks for the input.

I like the go to/best of the season theme.

Maybe an Albie fly swap too?

How about, a hook up / bend back swap where clousers are excluded?

Fly Swap

All of the above sound good. Also, in light of a few recent threads how about a big fly for big fish swap.

I second the idea for an albie/bonito swap.

I like the "best of the season" & the Exotic Ideas.

BTW: my best of the season is an original (or at least an original variant) that yeilded a 22# in Plymouth with JimW!

I will await more replies for a couple more days... But how about the first swap will be "Best of the Season"...since the season is over... and the next swap to begin in early January will be Albie-FA flies????????? In a couple days I will put up the sign on sheet... same rules as last year...limit 6 flies...unlimited participants.

I really like the big fly idea, but it should be something that has caught fish and can at least be lobbed.

Fly Swap

John,

Count me in! I think that "Go-tofly" followed by "Big fly" and "Albie fly" sounds like a great start. Since my casting are=m is outof commission, I might was well tie one on!

Bestregards and have a good weekend closing up the CAC for the winter!

-Doc
