I refrained from comment earlier on the size of the swap, however a swap always has a couple folks drop out. Additionally, you have shipping costs each way. This is why I would suggest that a swap minimum should likely be 16 people give or take. Let say you pay $8 shipping round trip shipping and end up with 8 beginner flies. On top of that you have the costs and time of your material of the flies you sent out. I know swaps are not meant to be a way to get flies on the cheap, but frankly I find them to be prohibitive for the reasons mentioned.

I've always seen swaps as a way to see different patterns and what works for different areas. In addation you get to see how a material you don't have will look on a fly . If your doing a swap for the added flies then yea i would say your probably going to have what it would have cost to just buy the flies from a shop . Also swaps are great for getting rid of those huge amount of flies you tied and have in stock pile waiting for Y3K>:)

Don't say that...you haven't seen them yet...I tied up a beetle pattern. Super simple and flat out catches fish...I hadn't fished with them until last summer...July on the Clarion River...just rocked em...since then every chance I get I have been throwing them and doing well...Neshannock, Dunbar Creek, Clarks, Little J...

The thow in fly was a sticky caddis tied with UV chewee skin. Very simple...these weren't my best but should still catch fish...
