Quote:
There is beauty in simplicity and the traditional soft-hackle wet fly is quite simply, beautiful. In its bareness, in the liveliness of its soft hackle fibers it suggests all that seems necessary to tempt fish. Because of its simplicity it's also one of the easiest flies to tie—and often one of the deadliest.
~Jack Gartside


Well, as the quote would suggest, this years Holiday Swap has a Soft-Hackle theme. So tie up your favorite Soft-Hackle and follow the guidelines below if you are interested in a variety of Soft-Hackle to try out.

You are only required to tie one pattern, but can submit more if you desire. There is a limit of 18 tiers and the deadline to enter is Friday, November 18th, 2011. Due date for your entries is December 31st, 2011. Please follow the guidelines and you should have your flies shortly after the deadline or when all entries are received.


You will need to tie as many flies as there are fellow participants. So if we reach the maximum number 18 tiers, you will need to provide at least 17 flies for all other participants excluding yourself. So everyone should tie and receive 17. 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.



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.

I plan on tying a holographic wet fly, which I used in the weekend on spring creek to great success.

Basically:

Body = Red thread
Tag and Rib = Crystal flash
Legs = Partridge over peacock herl

I was using size 16, but I might do 12s or 14s instead.

Huntin and Zip,

Will keep ya both in mind as alternates and I will only host one swap @ a time. This doesn't mean that there will not be another Holiday swap with another host.
