Title: 6th Annual Fly Swap 2018
Post by: Shakeyfly on February 11, 2018, 08:51:36 PM
This was truly the biggest year yet! 15 tyers and something like 21 flies submitted. I'll ask everyone to pitch in their photos and flies. And please let me know if I'm missing a picture of a fly, I'll post it up.


This year was incredible. A big thank you to Chris M for hosting. It was awesome to meet a new face Ancient Angler! who actually isn't so ancient, and amazing to see everyone again.


Jeff Skillz Submitted his flies on time, but that's because his wife tied them for him!!! We will have to change Jeff's Screen name to be more reflective of the marital effort. Thank you to everyone for bringing along Calzones, Jalapeno peppers, chips and dips, and Paul for cooking up a storm with the bow tie pasta and chicken.



Best Swap Ever!

I tossed a couple swinging classics in your box, and a little freestyle I tied up...the classics are likely way too big for the salmon river though lol

Great to see everyone! Thanks Chris for hosting and Ryan for organizing. Good times.

And yes, I'm working on a blog post for the event. Please visit the photo album at https://photos.app.goo.gl/wM3jMUWDtrGzncZd2 (https://photos.app.goo.gl/wM3jMUWDtrGzncZd2) and add your photos (I know Ryan already did). Also, put in a comment on the flies naming the tier. I've commented on a few but need help identifying the others.

It needs to be pointed out that Matt tied up 5 different patterns times 5.... 75 flies for the swap, plus 1 for me, and 1 for Chris... and those other flies for Trico...

He puts everyone to shame who complained about tying 15 flies...

I've been on vacation the past 2 days, and have been trying to make sure no one feels left out.  I didn't want anyone feelings to be hurt. I need to make a safe space on the forum.

75 flies,  isn't that what he did?

the size 28 fly was tied up by Jon Williams Mr. MapleSauce.

Thanks. We've identified all the tiers of the swap flies except the x-caddis. Was this Joebe?

Matt, thanks for the extra flies.

This is a picture of my flies about an hour before the swap. I used an industrial epoxy with a very long cure time. The flies were still tacky two days after applying the epoxy so I had to throw them into the oven to complete the reaction.  :blink
