6th Annual Fly Swap 2018
« 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!

Those look like some great ties gentlemen (and lady)!  Looking forward to receiving my set and getting them wet!  Sure miss the annual gathering.  Hope to see at least some of you this summer.  :beer

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

Cool, thanks Matt, I look forward to seeing them.  I just got a golden pheasant skin with crest...Really like the blue feathers with the black tippets!
