    So far seven anyone else for April 15th? It's a long way away but I'm new at this plus it keeps my sanity.

    I would really like to be a part of a fly swap. I am a new member to WFF but an experienced tyer. What are the rules and how is the swap done? I get the part about tying 13 flies of the same go-to pattern. What I don't understand is the logistics of the swap. :beathead:

    I am still thinking about what to tie. I was thinking that since I have so much time I might see what I can learn before then. Right now I am just moving from nymphs to streamers.

    Kent puts it very well for logistics:
    Example from his soft hackle swap, I'll have similar instructions but the dates and address's will be different. Hope this explains the details.

    Here's the ground rules for the swap.

    My go to flies. After some thought, difficult for me, I guess its a tossup between a Tan EHC or Red Humpy. I fish mostly lakes and the OP. Since my Humpys look absolutely ugly(trouble with the proportions/amount of hair), it will be the EHC in size 12.
