Stew1 your flies arrived. Lovely tubes. Thanks for the extra. There is another parcel at the postoffice which was short on stamps!! Hoping that's not gwelshers parcel.

All Arrived.

Everyone's flies are here and what a terrific bunch they are. This swap was intended to provide patterns that YOU'D caught a spring fish on and what has I have found really interesting is the general modest size we have all tied. Looking in tackle shops or magazines this time of year might have you thinking large large patterns are necessary but we have all tied what I consider modest sizes.

GWelsher, thanks for the extras. Very generous.

Okay everyone, these will be hitting Mondays post office. Tight lines 2015.

Ah! Now i only just notice we closed the swap with 6 including me. And we all submitted 6 flies; does everyone wish to receive their pattern back making it a full set, or I will do a random lucky dip and everyone will receive one extra fly of one of the other swappers??

I'm also throwing in a fly that I recently came across from the 80s to bulk up the swap a little, that I'm sure seatrout and big browns will love, cant see why a salmon wouldn't hit it either.

It's up to yourself, but I think you should keep the extra fly because you are the one that is doing all the work. It's up to the others but my vote goes to allow you to keep the extra fly

That's a relief mine have arrived. We had a some go missing in previous swaps, I think all the posties in Scotland are salmon fishers :D
Up to you Colin but the normal way was that everybody gets a full set. Quite often the theme from the swaps is offbeat so you only tie the ones for the swap not any for your box. I keep all my swap sets together and that way if I use one of my own, or one from somebody else, and should catch a fish I can report it in the Swap catches.

keep it

Irra keep the extra one for yourself. If you work in a bullseye shop you're entitled to the odd sweetie

Glad the flies are starting to land. I plan on running a low water fly swap after Easter so keep your eyes open.
