« on: December 04, 2017, 07:48:33 AM »

It's that time again... :doh


Pick a fly and tie it, 15 number of times. 


When: Sunday February 11th. at 1:00pm
Where: Chris M House in Billerica, MA Address will be PM'D by chris prior to swap taking place.
What: 6th FFNE Annual Fly Swap
Why: Because
How: Figure out what fly you are going to tie. Tie up that same fly for every person of the fly swap. INCLUDING YOU. FOR F*CK SAKE, PLEASE INCLUDE A GOD DAMN FLY FOR YOURSELF. You will end the night buzzed from beer and whiskey, gassy from all the incredible food, and with 9ish new flies including YOUR OWN FLY FOR YOUR OWN USE...

1) Shakeyfly

5) Chris M
6) Paul Cuzzupe

10) scales
11) flatsguy

So help me god... please remember to tie up 15 flies... not 14.... 15... you must have a fly tied up for yourself. Please do not screw up my piles.


Some tips:
Bring Beverage
Bring Food
Bring good Attitude
Bring better fish stories
Bring a fly box or something to take your flies home in.

I'm in. I would vote for some marabou as one of the materials or some supple material

I can also offer up my house for location. I have since added a professional ping pong table to the first floor man cave, for that full frat house experience

Also considerations:

1) A baggy of materials. This one is pricey. Right, so original thought was you get a baggy full of materials. you can choose thread and hooks, but you have to use the materials in the bag to make the 10 flies... but I see a lot of problems with this, because of cost etc. but if people are willing to pitch in on this, it could happen.

2) Color of materials. Keeping the materials colors consistent? Figured it would make it easy to see how everyone used the different materials. etc. But I could see it screwing up some people's fishable colors.

I guess I'm opening up the conversation to a broader audience.

Give me your top 5 materials you get one shot at this. I want to see other people's lists.

Here's mine

1) Deer hair (body or bucktail)
2) Peacock hearl
3) marabou
4) Dry Fly Hackle feathers
5) flash

We're in... (I'm also responding for troutdoors).

I agree with Shaky's list except replace the Dry Fly Hackle with any hackle (which includes dry fly hackle). I'm thinking that everyone has all of those materials and there would no need to "create" a baggy for the swap. KISS.

Let everyone choose their own colors to add creativity to the swap.

If you fill up the 10 slots, create a second group for the swap so everyone can participate without having to tie too many flies.

 Hey Guys,

I wish I can be there for the swap....with my schedule I don't have a clue for what's in store for Feb.  However
if you allow outside of being there I'm in, just let me know the details...  hopefully some of you are getting out for the last time before the winter kicks in.  Tightlines, John
