    Default Swap. Feb 2018

    Ok folks. I'm willing to host a swap (hopefully) each month.

    Rules are simple. Tie a fly for each member of the swap +/- yourself and post them securely (meaning postman doesn't get stabbed) including a Stamped Self addressed envelope

    I would encourage any newer tiers to join as it is a great way to improve your ties and improve your confidence.

    There will be a seven day window to sign up each month, allowing Min of 3weeks to tie and post.

    The closing date each month will be a fixed date so that swaps can be back with people in a timely fashion. Life does sometimes interfer and please PM me if you have issues rather than just not saying anything and everyone is waiting on flies that never arrive.

    welcome Billy, I'll give it 7days before calling numbers so we all have at least 3weeks to tie and post.

    Big thanks to Piker for taking on the swap, will miss it as have received some cracking flies over the years and would echo his comments re new tiers, great way to learn and find consistency👍. Tight lines to everyone who enters.
