    Ok, so I read the thread and thought this was a good idea and I am gonna try to get the ball rolling.

    First, the format. There will be 2 threads for each contest. A thread to submit and discuss, and then a thread for voting.

    There will be 4 rounds. (streamers, dry, nymph, and terrestrial) Each round you may submit 1 fly. (post ur image in the submission thread). Submissions for each round will run 1 week. Once the submission time is over all images will be posted in the voting thread and voting will be open for 1 week.

    Each round will have two categories to vote for

    Category 1. "Best Fly" Use your own set of criteria to vote for your favorite fly.

    Category 2. "Most Creative" Pick one fly you feel to be the most creative of the group.


    In each category points will be awarded based on the number of votes received.

    First place - 5 points
    Second place - 3 points
    Third place - 2 point
    Bonus Category - 1 point (If you meet this criteria you will get 1 point automatic)
    Theme Category - 1 point (If you meet this criteria you will get 1 point automatic)

    At the end of all four rounds, total points will be calculated. As of now this is only for bragging rights, good spirited competition, and fun.


    Round 1 - Streamers

    Bonus Category - Size
    Theme - Grateful Dead

    All flies tied larger then 6 inches from tail end of fly will get 1 point.
    All flies tied with red/blue body and a white stripe will get 1 point.

    Submit your fly to this thread by next Thursday at midnight!

    Sounds like fun.
    Just curious: will the judges in category A be in any way aware of submissions in category B?

    no judges, public voting :)

    I will make a certificate for the winners, but they will have to print it themself. Good idea :)

    Kelvin, you still tying one up for this? I thought more people would get in on this. Maybe I have to call out Mumbles again for him to get in on this. He hasn't posted any fishing reports lately, so I know he isn't fishing. I'll bet he can find some time to tie up just one fly.

    I am pretty sure a JOB disqualifies you from a "dead head" fly swap

    I only have to tie one and I have until midnight on the 22nd to post photos? I hate getting called out, thanks Trevor. I will try to tie up something with a red belly, white stripe, blue back, longer than six inches, creative and better than Kelvin and Trevor. Well, it is all true but that last part about better, they tie some nice looking flies.
