    The flies that you throw under tree limbs on a 90 deg day that make a big "splat", that could float a downrigger ball. Doesn't have to be a Stone or hopper, but the inbetween flies that could represent anything that would fall out of the brush. Examples: Madam X, chernobyl, turners bank robber, etc....Basically rubber legs, foam, deer and elk hair stuff. Also, I have read the complaints about people not getting thier flies back, so here is my solution: If you send me $5, I will UPS your flies to you and PM you the tracking number, so there will be no "lost in the mail" issues. Im thinking 12 persons max, since these are not quick to tie. April 25th deadline. If I get all the flies by the 25th, I will ship on the 27th, and PM you your tracking numbers that evening.
    Anyone interested?

    Thanks,
    Jason

    No kidden, these are the kind of flies you play with for 20 min. at the fly shop going "why didn't I think of that?" ...Or... you will be on the river in summer flows watchin everyone cast big uglies to the banks takin' fish thinking "wish I had some sweet flies too...guess I shoulda joined that swap back in March....DAMN!" Everyone who is a fan of dry flies should be in on this.

    i read this post earlier today, real early and i have been searching for patterns and at the vise all day trying to think of a pattern. i am relativity new to tying and i don't think im that good so im worries about entering a swap. but this one sounds great and everyone should jump on the chance, but maybe they don't feel confident enough around spinning deer hair to be trading flies???

    count me in! no clue what pattern, If its ok with you-all, a stimmi kinda falls in line with a stone fly or a terrestial. If thats ok I'll tie that if not I'll figure out something else to tie.

    I'm in. Not sure if I'll be using some multi layer colored flip flop foam for some version of a chernobyl or hopper but I'll whip something up. I've never fished these foam flies but I've been tying some up over the past few weeks trying to fill a box. I've been tying some in twos and threes so sitting down to tie up a batch should be a good thing for me.

    I didnt mean to come off like everyone has to be an expert...If I did, and it turned anyone off from doing this Im sorry. Just tie what you like and what works for you.
