I've been thinking about hosting a fly swap on here for a while. I'm not sure there are enough active members that tie, but there is nothing saying it has to be a big swap. I'm game.

Default fly swap

I'd participate....I can't guarantee you wouldn't cuss my flies (and maybe even my username), but I would be happy to participate

I am a fairly new member, oK, I am a really new member on this board, but I would be up for a swap, especially of patterns for the Smokies. I am planning my first trip to your area for this June and I am just now starting to tie up the flies that you all have recommended. So I am would be very interested.

Smile tiers ready ?

Looks like we got at least 5 tiers...


How does this work, 5 patterns per tier?


Pattern suggestions, anyone?

Well, I am interested in learning about more patterns from your neck of the woods, so I like the idea of a Smokey Mountain pattern swap. The flies that I use up here are a bit different (I use mostly size 18-22 midges alot of the time with some griffith gnats thrown in for good measure). Right now I am working on the Tellico Nymph and other "goto" flies I have read about on this board.

Swaps usually work like this: Each person ties 1 pattern. You post the pattern you are going to tie so that there are no duplicates. If there are 5 people in the swap and the pattern that you have decided to tie is a green weenie, then you would tie 5 green weenies. Everyone sends their flies to a "swap miester" in a crushproof container along with a return envelope and return postage. When the SM gets everyone's package, he makes "sets" of the flies and sends them back to the participants. Everyone then has a complete set of flies.

Take a look at this post regarding swaps. http://www.flyanglersonline.com/bb/v...ic.php?t=15195

Default re: smoky mtn tie-off

Griff ,


Thanks for the explanation. I'm interested in the pattern known as the Smoky mtn. Blackbird Soft Hackle. I don't have the exact recipe for this one, but if someone here does, consider this my vote for adding that one to the mix.

I'm at work right now, but once I get home I'll look over my materials and post a smoky mtn pattern.


Sounds like fun, looking forward to it !

I would be interested, but midgeman would have to provide written gaurantees that there would be no litigation based on failed effectivness of any given pattern....lol....
