Well, these are the general guidelines:

You will need to tie as many flies as there are fellow participants. So if we reach the maximum number 15 tiers, you will need to provide at least 14 flies for all other participants excluding yourself. So everyone should tie and receive 14. 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 19 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.

basically,you pick your favorite steelhead fly, then you tie enough flies for the other participants (and the mods if so inclined), mail them to the host, the host sorts the flies, and mails them back. Each tier will receive one fly from each participant(two from me because I'm overly ambitious). just post here if interested so I can add you to the list, deadline to register is August 18, and the flies are due by September 9th. Assuming everyone holds to the deadline, you should receive your flies shortly thereafter.
