Swap time??

Yep, it's swap time!

I know there's some interest in another pike fly swap and a spun/stacked hair fly swap. Let's toss around some ideas and see what we can come up with.

Here's one that I thought would be interesting: dragonfly imitations. We could restrict it to adult dragonfly patterns, or allow nymphs and emergers, or maybe do a combo with one set of adult and one set of nymphs/emergers per person.

How many flies are we talking?
Also FWIW, a general "favorite" swap would be more to my likeing as I don't have a good draggonfly pattern ( but do have a few other secret weapons )

I would also favor a favorite swap.....it could range from a specialty bluegill bug to an oversized musky morsel.

I like the idea. I can't spread myself too thin with swaps this winter, so if I were to join in one this could be it.

A "favorite" swap sounds good to me. It's always nice to get a fly that's someone else's secret weapon!

Number of flies depends on the number of participants. If it's a large swap then we sometimes set a limit. For example, there are ten people but you only have to send six flies, and then you get six flies back. Of course, you could still send ten flies and then you'd get a complete set in return.

More ideas??

Let's do a favorite freshwater fly swap. It can be a trout, bass, pike, sunfish, salmon fly, whatever. I'm in for that.

Since this is the warmwater forum, I say that we have a favorite warmwater fly swap. If a fly has crossover appeal to trout or salmon, so much the better. But my vote is to keep this a warmwater swap.

Majority rules, so let's hear from others.

Anybody else interested? It looks like this is who we've got so far:
teflon_jones
Quentin
flyjkol
Wee Hooker
Dble Haul

It would be great to have a few more people, or as an alternative all of us could tie 2 different flies each. I say that we leave this open until Jan 31st and if nobody else joins up, let's do the 2 flies each.

We're up to 8 people now! I think we should still close it on Jan 31st or when we hit 10 people, whichever comes first. What do other people think?

Please make sure to post what fly you'll be tying too. I'm tossed up between a sparkle bugger, a marabou streamer, or maybe I'll tie my Teflon's Diver (my version of a Dahlberg diver).
