With the ever increasing number of fly fishermen joining the forum, I thought I'd test the water and see if there is an interest in holding a Nymph swap.
If so, sound "OFF", and we'll get a swap under way.

I'm down. I just found an old tying vise for cheap, so I'll break out the old materials, and tie up some small nymphs for Summers. It is one of the few patterns that I can actually be really proud of...Anyone else who joins, you're lucky, some other patterns I've tried tying might just look like nasty puff bugs!

Once it is determined how many people are going to participate, we will tie flies for each person involved, and mail them to FishFinger, the swap organizer. And in return you will recieve a bug/s from each of the other participants. Really simple to operate, and pretty fun to boot.

Rover make sure you tell your wife ..... We are swapping BUGS.

After the "Swinging room on the weekend" ordeal better to be safe than sorry..

otherwise it's as AA defined it. Once all the participants are in I'll PM each with my address. Went you submit them make sure to include the postage for the return delivery.. Not that I'm errr...... Cheap, rather that's the format we've been using for our swaps..

We'll give it a week or two for folks to join and and then set up a shipping date.

Very Cool!

Very cool! :clap: So much talent and time put into these little things. Maybe it's not too late for a grandma to learn. How tough is it on your hands? It just looks fun and interesting. Thanks for sharing. Be safe.

We'll close the nymph call on Sunday 3-1-09, allow the first 3 weeks of March for the tying portion and the final week for shipment.

All partisipants in by 3/1
Flies completed by 3/21
Shipping by 3/28

And I'll return the sets by the 1st week of April

No worries, thanks for your interest. Hopefully we'll have more in the future. Emergent, dries, and streamers we'll get something going in a few more months.

I don't tie nymphs either. I am mostly a dry bug wrapper when I do decide to tie up my own. But I have been practicin a little bit. Not as hard as I thought it would be for sure. You guys might actuallt get some really nice fur from me! Haha.
