What a midge swap?



The best way I can explain it, is it's a cookie exchange, but using flies and with MEN! lol

Everyone ties up their own style of fly; one for every participant (in this case 2 different flies, 2 for everyone). Then they get sent to a swap master and they will split them all up and send them out from there. So everyone will get the same mixture of everyone's ties. It's fun and a good way to try new things.


On the main page of the fly tying thread there is a link to some pictures of past swaps. That is a great place to look for new patterns to try, recipies and all.

WOW, thats cool! i may have to get in on this. The only prob is I dont have a special tie, mainly use pop midges and the standard larval and pupa stages. I may have to experiment and come up with something in the nixt couple days, if I find a winner and there is still time to join in I may join! I'll go develope something this weekend.

Cope, just pick a midge pattern. Anything that is considered a midge.
