If you think terrestrial imitations are only for summer fishing, you’re missing a great deal of dry-fly action. The normal thought is that trout ignore land-bred insects in the spring and early summer, until mayfly and caddisfly hatches dwindle with the heat of summer. They ignore terrestrials about as much as you ignore chocolate mousse when out to dinner.
~Tom Rosenbauer


The theme for this Swap is any pattern that is considered terrestrial that you like to tie. You may use any material that you like and there will be a cap of 16 tiers. First 16 to sign up on this thread are in.

You are only required to tie one pattern, but can submit more if you desire. There is a limit of 16 tiers and the deadline to enter is Sunday, March 31, 2012. Due date for your entries is April 20, 2012. 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 16 tiers, you will need to provide at least 15 flies for all other participants excluding yourself. So everyone should tie and receive 15. 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.

well, after a little experimentation, I will not be tying my woven foam cicada, it's just too much of a PITA to weave with foam

So, I will be tying my generic foam hopper and a periodical cicada.

Yea, that'll work that's a nice looking tie sniper. What I was thinking was to latch on a strip of foam and weave a body of DMC cotton broder (floss)in brown and black for the body over the foam in hopes to get some good floatation. I've never tried that yet but the talk of woven terrestrials got me to thinking about it. This will be an experiment and all of you and I will be the testers so to speak, if that's alright. Right now it's still in my head, more or less. I'll it out after the hoppers are done. Jack

If you have any ideas along those lines I'd be happy to hear em...
