    gwelsher and charlie h flies recieved and they are beauties I'll post a pic of the lot once here
    I've 9 done so that'll be enough for everyone in the swap. I'll also throw in a more traditional coloured cascade that can go in the box. I'll hopefully get them posted by the weekend.

    From memory it's best capped at 10 members
    im happy to organise themes if we get interest
    same format as previous but if you are a new to the swaps
    you are required

    1 put yer name down , first come first served max 10 members
    2 tie up 10 flies that match the theme , can be single, double , tube , waddie etc
    3 post pics of said flees
    4 post them to me and I'll divi them up and post back
    simples 😉

    The theme to get us started will be the well known and deadly CASCADE a fly everyone should have in their box
    so many varieties too you could have original, gold, holographic, Aurora, or your original take on the fly the choice is yours as long as it resembles the original pattern
    so who's in?
    ps NO TREBLES please as mentioned some rivers dont allow them

    Very nice Richard
    Bottom row one on the right for me, I like those longer hackles.
    Regards Gary
    Fishing for 60 years and am still trying to understand why I do it, but I love misunderstandings
