Beginner/Simple Fly Swap 2011

This is a swap for basic flies, patterns that would be "beginner friendly". Nothing overly complicated, buggers, nymphs and bucktail streamers, or a simple dry even, if one is so inclined.


You are only required to tie one pattern, but can submit more if you desire. There is a limit of 10 tiers and the deadline to enter is Friday, October 7th. Due date for your entries is Friday, October 28th, 2011. Please follow the guidelines and you should have your flies shortly after the deadline. If you think that deadline is too agressive, let me know right away.

Send me a PM to confirm that you are participating. I will update the thread with the participants as I receive them. Ideally, send me the pattern you intend to tie, that way we can ensure diversity in the patterns we all receive. I will start the list in the thread now, but I would also like a confirmation PM.


You will need to tie as many flies as there are fellow participants. So if we reach the maximum number 10 tiers, you will need to provide at least 9 flies for all other participants excluding yourself. So everyone should tie and receive 9. Also, optional extra flies may be tied for Dave Kile and the Moderators who keep this site running smoothly. It is highly recommended that you include one for Dave, for without PaFlyFish this swap wouldn't be possible. Counting the 4 mods, and Dave, that would be a total of 14 flies if you are so inclined.



Flies will be returned in the containers they were mailed in, if possible. Please write your name on your container- If you don’t I will. Keep in mind that the other flies may be larger than yours, so make your container large enough to handle that possibility. Please include a stamped return envelope. Whatever it costs to mail to me, it will cost me at least that to return, so match the postage. To the guys that are doing this for the first time- do not send them in an expensive fly box. I have had flies get lost in the mail in the past. The best type of container is an Altoid tin or something similar. Fly boxes tend to be a little too bulky and usually cost more to ship.


It is nice to provide the other tyers with the fly pattern recipe, instructions, etc. At a bare minimum, provide the materials list for each part (e.g.: Hook: #14; Thread: brown; Tail: Medium Dun Hackle; etc...); preferably, give the recipe, step-by-step instructions, and a short explanation of the use of the fly; it's history, if you want, etc.



Please email or PM me when you have mailed your flies so I can look for them in the mail. I will post on this thread that they have arrived safely. I will PM everyone my email and mailing address once the swap is full or the deadline has passed. If you have any questions just email/PM me or post them on this thread.

okay, halfway there...

sniperfreak223-TBA
The_Sasquatch-Olive Caddis Nymph
thebassman- Mini foam hopper
Love2fish- BH Double Standard nymph
troutmagnet - Hare and Copper

Still not decided on what I'll tie, thinking a Mickey Finn, as it was the first pattern I learned to tie some 10 years ago, so it's got a bit of sentimental value to me, but I may do another pattern or two...

Man, that thread is in razor sharp focus... but you've got something all blurry up in the front of it.
