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.

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 consistencyπŸ‘. Tight lines to everyone who enters.

That's mine nearly ready piker20 :) 10 lava shrimps on size 8 patriots, just need to give them the varnish treatment which will probably take longer than they took to tie and I'll get them in the post, can you please pm me the address

I tried to warn you .....obviously I was being to subtle πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Am sure everyone will be delighted with your no Bucktail offerings......there’ll be no need to tie any others.......they are super flies πŸ‘

Yeah don't tie a new set, those are great. Maybe next month can be a fur theme and you might do bucktail:p
