Fly Swaps
« on: October 18, 2012, 12:40:35 PM »

Figured this board needed something in it...

so I guess this is a rules/suggestion area....

If you are going to take a lead on the swap, set the ground rules. Here's a few good idea from the few that I ran

1) Find out how many people
2) Find out how many flies are needed
3) Pick a theme
4) Make sure that flies are equal... (I've been guilty of it before) but, you don't want someone tying Glo-bug eggs in a Classic Salmon Fly swap.
5) Find a place to send it too, or meet up. Not everyone can meet up, but it's really cool to meet up and drink beers somewhere and talk fishing. It's half the fun of it.
6) POST PICTURES AFTERWARDS!! This is something everyone loves to look at. Especially people not in swaps. It gets the buzz and excitement around them going, and it encourages the people who are just learning to tie to get involved.

GIVE IT A SHOT!! People are up for swaps ALL THE TIME!!!
