    Default March Fly Swap

    As there is alot of nice flies going up at the moment what do you guys say to attempting a revival of the once popular fly swap?

    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

    so I would tie up 10 cascades, send them in, then get a mixture of 10 cascades sent back? Is that how it works?

    I'll give it a go. Can I add a suggestion. Maybe make it one extra fly which goes into a box to be auctioned at the end of the year for a charity of your choice?

    Just a suggestion but maybe it'd be an idea to just tie them on singles, doubles, tubes and waddingtons as most places don't allow trebles any more. I used to take part in the swaps many moons ago but stopped as i'd often end up with a handful of flies that as lovely as they were I couldn't use due to being on trebles

    My fingertips certainly won't have a problem with that!
