    Default Fly Swap March 2017

    We now have the required 10 for the March 2017 swap, as listed below.

    Theme is low-water/summer patterns, on tubes or hooks. Ideally would like all entries posted to me by second week in April, meaning I have the weekend after I return from 2 weeks of sun, sea, sand and cerveza to sort out and post back. Please remember and enclose a SAE!!

    This month's star-studded selection of tyers is:

    Aye why not.

    I'll have to see if I can come up with something that doesn't give away too many of my summer secrets.

    I'm in.

    Picture the scene in 5 weeks time. It's 0100 and the youngest is woken up by my cries as I catch my finger on a hook for the 100th time and realise I forgot to tie the wing in before varnishing the head on fly No 5, Nooooooooo!!

    And they say Nurses have it tough.

    Hahaha!!!! With me it's usually the scissors, bobbin holder or whatever else comes to hand bouncing of the back wall of the shed in a fit of rage for forgetting something after I thought the fly was finished!!!

    Glad it's not just me!

    I'll go again but i don't really fish salmon flies in low water so you'll end up with a bunch of trout flies. If that's ok with you guys. I'm game!
