Bass Fly Swap 2018

Recommended Posts

It's been a long time since we've done a swap, and even longer since I participated in one. So, I'm proposing we do a bass fly swap since things are warming up. Also, I need some bass flies -- in particular some from Flysmallie and BilletHead. Standard fly swap protocol will be observed. Here are the details and deadlines, which will be updated as we go along:

(1) Sign up by March 31, 2018. Reply to this thread and name the fly you intend to tie;

(2) Tie 8 flies, plus extras if you feel moved to tip the Swapmeister. It's nice to tag the flies with your screen name;

(3) Send said flies to the Swapmeister by April 30, 2018 (address will be provided) in a container marked with your real live name, OA screen name and return address. Include a couple bucks to cover return postage or risk (a) getting no flies and/or (b) a special mention here. (I still remember the guy that stiffed me the last time I hosted);

(4) Swapmeister will send one of each fly received to each participant who meets the provisions of (3) above. He will also photograph each fly and post the pictures here;

(5) Receive flies and immediately return to this thread to gush over wonderful flies and heap praise upon the Swapmeister for putting this together;

(6) Fish said flies, and post pictures of fish caught in this thread;

OK -- everybody got it? I'm going to limit this to 10 participants, just to keep it manageable. So, hurry up, sign up, get up and tie up. I have taken the liberty to sign up a few that I know will be thrilled to be offered an opportunity to show their creativity and skill. I will update participants and flies in this post.

Well, I suppose I ought to run the idea past her for an o-fishul yes. But she's a sport and I don't think I'll have any trouble. She has tied them before. Maybe get her students to do it?

           Oh and can we set a more reasonable limit? Like maybe a tenth of your goal? Dozen at the most?   

  Yes Ronnie it is all your fault. Guess I finally made the big time if I really got invited and you are not Ness Messing with me,

(Just tying to make it sound yuge. Swapmeister ain’t tying 100 flies either)

C’mon folks — there are only 96 spots left!

Well obviously if you are paying me and Marty to join it's a pretty big deal. 

I’ll cover your postage, ok? Like I did the last time 😄
