Swap WFF Holiday Fly Swap

#46
As I understand, we pick 2 patterns and tie a quantity of 5 for each that way when swapped people will get one set 5 of the same thing from 1 member and another set of 5 of a different pattern from another member.

Yes thats correct

2 sets of 5

for examples
5 prince nymphs
5 faltwing candle fish patterns


you trade with 2 other tiers and end up with
5 BWO emergers size 24 tied by Larry
and 5 spey flies tied by Thomas

Hmm, this could be fun and I think I'm free. I've never done one of these so this might not be right, but it seems like it would be better to get 5 different patterns from each person for more variety. I suppose it's easier to just tie 5 of the same pattern 2 times though. Dang, my favorite (best producing) flies sure aren't much to look at! No theme? Do they need to be original patterns? Sorry for all the questions.

not a bad thought
but if I get a really good pattern I always want a few of them not just one

super fly.JPG not my patterns
just an example of what you're tying

2 groups of 5 is what everyone tying
I am tying up extras to give to people who might want one

Nothing worse than finding a pattern that works and only having one of them.
That's true. I guess my thought was you got one, then went home and copied it :) The way it is setup works just fine though, I was just wondering what was standard since I've never been to one.

Let me confuse you all. Everyone is (don't forget) supposed to tie me (dryflylarry) 2 sets of 5 flies also!!! That way you will be totally covered and insured you did it right! ........... :rolleyes:

The Avid Angler is as far as I know the first local shop to start carrying the speciality hooks that I'll be using to tie my flies for the swap. Isn't that convenient, you can check out my stillwater patterns and then actually buy the hooks they are tied on. They might also be getting in the specialty tungsten beads I use, two birds one stone.

If any of the rest of you will have specialty materials, you might want to contact the store and see if they have the materials in case some of us would like to buy from the shop in support of their gracious offer to host the swap.
