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!

Bump...

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

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.

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...!

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 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.

Tod
