    I'm in with a Dave's hopper if we haven't already met the quota of Idaho fishermen.

    If no more entrants (one to go) I'll close it on the 23rd and post the rules.

    Well These Extended Caddis are done. :beer2:

    Checked my records and found I did better with a size 16, so they are all 16's. :thumb:

    Will mail them in this week.

    Don,

    We don't know where and when to mail the flies yet. The other instruction post was just an example of what to expect. It was for a different swap.

    Well we have twelve tiers, swap is now closed. If you forget the toe tags I'll be able to keep everything straight but the other tiers might not know who tied what. I even bought a new light tent for my photo habit to get some good photos. Have fun tying guys .




    Here's the ground rules for the swap.

    1. Mark Saturday, April 15, 2006, on your calendars as the date for me to RECEIVE your flies. The further you are from Mount Vernon, the more time you should allow for snail mail to get here from wherever you are. Better yet, tie your flies early and send 'em as soon as you're finished.

    2. Attach a toe tag to each of your flies with your name and the name of your fly. A narrow strip of paper with the fly stuck into one end seems to work best. Please avoid using little pre-cut tags with strings or adhesive labels that you attach to each fly. From experience, if they come off in transit, I end up getting a bunch of loose flies and tags that I've got to reattach. Also, please avoid big tags. At least one person will send their flies in a little tiny fly box or Altoid tin which will make stuffing your big tag into that tiny space a challenge.

    3. With twelve tiers, tie one for everyone else except yourself. Although there are twelve tiers, you'll get eleven flies back at the end of the swap.
    Place your flies in a crush-proof container (a cheap plastic fly box, an Altoid tin or a plastic VHS tape case all work great).

    4. Mail your container in a padded or sturdy clasp envelope. If you must send your flies in a box, please include an address label I can put on the box or an envelope.

    Please include the correct return postage or a couple of bucks.

    If you don't send both return postage AND a self addressed envelope it may delay getting flies back to you. I'll let you know if one or both are missing and will hold on to your flies until you send postage or an envelope.

    5. Mail your flies to:

    Daryle Holmstrom
    2002 E. Section St.
    Mount Vernon, WA 98274

    6. I'll divide up the flies on Monday, April 17 and mail 'em back out to you. You don't have to wait until the end of March to send 'em in. If everyone gets their flies in early then I can send 'em out early and the swap doesn't have to come to a screeching halt while one or two guys are frantically tying the day before the deadline.

    7. If you've got to pull out of the swap for some unforeseen reason, PLEASE let us know by posting to this thread as soon as possible. Things change in life and it's OK if you've got to focus on something else instead. But a little advance notice will go a long way and keep me from having to track you down the day before the deadline.

    8. Primary communication will be by this thread. I'll add posts from time to time to see how we're all doing as the deadline draws closer and will send email or PMs to any laggards.

    Otherwise, thanks for joining in the swap - I can't wait to see your flies.

    Hello Daryle,

    Thanks for the ground rules. I am either going to tie a 14 moosemane caddis or Adams with moosemane tail and rib. Just got some materials form a friend in AK.

    Thanks for the swap,
    Ned

    I'm in...
    I haven't done a swap before but guess details will be posted later on who's in.
    I'll tie a soft hackle carey, my favorite for West WA, or a wooley bugger variation fav for East Wa.
