    I am just wanting to see if anyone that is either new to tying or doesn't mind swapo g with guys that are new to tying would be interested in doing a swap. So after reading a few of these I see it's normally a certain kind of fly since I am doing this with newbies I figure we won't do that we will just make it a trout fly. Any kind of trout fly what ever you can tie. So before I put out a number of ppl lets see how many ppl are interested??? And to be honest I don't care if only a few want to do it.

    So once I see if there is any interest then we can go from there on how many ppl and how many flies will need to be tied. Since I am the one doing this you can send them toe and I will pay to send them on if that is ok with every one. So tell me what you think and again you don't have to be new just willing to have some flies from some guys that are new.

    Depending on the timing I would be interested. You might rethink paying the cost of mailing the flies back to us. Normally we send a self addressed, return postage paid package to the host.

    Ok thanks and that's a great idea! And I figure this will take a couple weeks to get some ppl together and then I figure we can. Give everyone a month to tie? Does that seem the norm?

    Mailing them back runs about $5-$8 per package depending on the mailing media selected and postage. That could run into a few $$$ if you have 10 swappers.
