2010 Summer Terrestrial Fly Swap - Deadline for signups June 1, 2010.

1. In the fly swap participants will pick a pattern and tie one for each participant. I also recommend that you tie extras for this forums moderators JackM, Maurice, and afishinado, and one for Dave Kile who runs the PAFF site to show our appreciation for what they do. Please let us know which pattern you will be tying so we don't have repeats.

2. Deadline for sending flies will be July 1, 2010. Please let me know if anyone will not be able to meet this date so I can let all the participants know there will be a delay. I will try to send out all the flies by July 8, 2010 so try to respect the deadline.

3. I will return the flies in the container you send them in. A envelope with return postage is required. Please make sure you have the correct amount of postage on the return envelope. I will PM or Email all participants my mailing address when signups are complete.

4. Please provide recipe and instructions with you creations. Also as much info you have on the fly (use and history) would be nice.
Please email me the me all this info and anything else (pictures, etc.) so I can send them out to the participants.

5. Email me when the flies are in the mail and I will also let you know when I recieve them.

Thank you everyone who is participating.

If you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask.

i am undecided on what fly to tie. I am a descent tyer but normally focus on nymphs and buggers. I am thinking about doing a flying ant. Should I tie multiple sizes. since it is a relativley easy patern i am going to tie a few for each person. Should i try to pick a harder pattern.

Count me in. I'll tie Kelly Galloup's Ant Acid. The fly is special to me, as it's the first fly I ever cast to a rising trout that I caught.

I think I will have the time to do this...at present I am thinking of tying a royal wulff, good for everything (nymph indicator, dry fly, attractor, steel head...blah blah blah) and I have a cape that needs to be thinned out a bit.

BJ,

My screen name is actually gentleshepherd. Common mistake - notoverly offended, but if you want to tie me up an extra dozen for the mental anxiety this has caused, I would appreciate it! LOL!
Have a great weekend.
