Sorry, that is what I had written down but must not have been thinking when I typed it. Sorry about that. I see I doubled up the parachute ant. Thanks for catching the mistake.

I was hoping we would have more people signed up than this. It is a good idea. Why don't we each tie 12 of our pattern. Then each person will get two of each. If we get one more person then each will get 2 each. If we don't get anymore people you will get 2 back that you tied.

Is this alright with everyone that signed up?

Hey djmyers,


I maybe able to join your swap, if you can give me until Sunday to commit. I have some business travels scheduled for next week that I think will be canceled.....if so I will be home for the week and can crank out 12 flies. If you need to close the swap and get going, I understand

I had a couple more sign up. I think we should still tie 12 each. Then if we have some late comers that we have enough for each. Any extras I have I will just send back to the original tier.

I have the following signed up. If anyone else is interested let me know. I would just like to have the flies in my hands by Sept. 19th. So if we all tie 12 flies I would have room for 5 more people.

1. DJMyers - Foam Beetle
2. JayL - Caterpillar
3. Bruno - Devil Bug
4. Albatross - Drunk Humpies
5. Plumbob - House Fly
6. Ian_Brown - Parachute Ant
7. StudentOfTheStream - Hopper pattern?
8. FlyFishermanJ - Michagen Skunks
9.
10.
11.
12.
13.

I will leave the signup open as long as you can get your flies to me by the deadline of Sept. 19.

I'm on the fence with this one for two reasons.

1. I'm concerned that my ties aren't going to be of the same quality as the rest of the tiers. I'm not a newbie at tying, but I'm self taught and don't want to send anyone junk, compared to everyone else's abilities. That's not cool.

2. I've not tied a lot of terrestrials and it looks like most of the ties that I could handle are covered. Any suggestions on what you guys might like given an average tying level?

Also, this would be my first swap, which I'm not really worried about because this is a forum loaded with good guys

Big concern for me like I've said is my quality compared to all of yours. I'm not bad, but I'm not a pro. I do ok though.

I agree, send em in. I just started tying and so don't expect fabulous things from me. I actually look at it too that it is a chance to challenge yourself to tie something that you are not an expert at. You have to tie a dozen so it gives you a chance to try and perfect some things.

There are still a lot of things, different hopper patterns, inch worm patterns, and others. Just google "Terrestrial Patterns" and see what you can find that you would be comfortable tying.

I am in....and will be tying a beetle pattern. I may have over looked this in the posts, but are we including one fly per tier for our moderator, dkile? Also, I would suggest we tie an extra fly for JackM, in the past he has taken the photos and posted the flies on this site. If JackM will do that again, I would like to provide him a set of the flies.

There's no need to tie for me. Tie for Dave as he makes this all possible. I won't be in on this one, so I can't take pictures, but if someone takes photos and collects the recipes (in electronic format so I can cut n' paste) I would be happy to add a page to our fly swap pages for this swap.

I say let's tie one for all the mods, these guys do a great job keeping this forum going smoothly. That includes you Jack! Plus one for Dave for giving us all a great place on the net to congregate

Anyone else agree?

Although we can't bribe JackM to be our photographer ($$$$)

Is there any one in the swap that can take the photos? I have tried the photo thing over and over again, they never turn our well. Photoshop can't even correct my pictures.

I really like the swap page as a reference. Once you fish someone flies...if they work...I can go back the to swap page and tie one on!

If no one can take pictures, you will have no choice but to send me a set. I am not refusing to photograph them, but would rather not if someone else is capable. The key to getting good pictures (and I'm not saying the ones I took are good, but they are OK):

1. Plenty of light;
2. A background;
3. No shadow on the background;
4. A tripod to keep camera absolutely still;
5. Of course, proper focus.

I hope to be able to take the photos. Hopefully I can get a good picture of them. I will also gather the recipes when everyone sends their flies. If there is anyway for me to upload the photos and recipes I don't mind but if not I will send them over to you JackM.
