In the interest of full disclosure, I am borrowing flyfishermanj's swap content...why reinvent the weel, right?

BWO Swap 2011 is a swap of your favorite BWO pattern. You may tie any BWO pattern from a nymph to a spinner. You are only required to tie one pattern, but can submit more if you desire. There is a limit of 10 (at the request of a couple guys) tiers and the deadline to enter is Friday, August 12th. Due date for your entries is Monday August 29th, 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.

Does anyone have a pic of all the flies? I was just curious to see what they all looked like.

A bit early to be asking as the swap has not started.

So the swap is closed now, at 10 participants. Since we filled it up pretty quick, would you like to move the deadline up a bit? I'm open to suggestions, or should we stick with the 29th?

It looks like BelAirSteve and I are planning on tying the same pattern, or at least something pretty similar (I was thinking loop wing). I'll defer to the swap host and choose another pattern later this week.
Mike.
