Invitations go out to all tyers for the USD swap

Limited to 9 Tyers

Flies due to me by 15th May 2012 (or before) .

All tyers to tye one fly extra to be donated to CfR.

Jiffy bags both ways please and don't forget the stamps for the return.

Haven't hosted a swap for a while which I feel is a bit overdue.



Name of Tyer.............................................Pattern names (if known)..................................................Received


Grey Hackle.......................................................psn dooןɐɹɐd..............................................................


Invicta..................................................................sǝʌıןo....................................................................


Roy...................................................................psn ʎsɐǝd ʎsɐǝ...........................................................


Arkle.................................................................ɟ˙ǝ˙ɔ˙o˙ɯ,s..............................................................


MikeH...............................................................∩SpℲℲlʎ....................................................................


RogB................................................................∩Sp Wɐʎɟlıǝs..............................................................


Flytier07........................................................pɹʎ ɯɐɹɔɥ qɹoʍu nsp.......................................................


Tips for new swap tyers.

1 Choose patterns that are not too fancy and easier to tye.

2 Pace yourself and try and get a few done early on to give yourself time.

3 Enjoy it - it is fun not a chore!

I hope you all like tying them and I look forward to receiving your confirmation of joining in. Thanks for viewing in the meantime.

Forgot to add that Roy has already agreed to joining in the swap and am now awaiting to hear from Invicta who I am confident will join in. Should we not meet the target of number of tyers then I'll kiss it next week.

Thanks for having a peep at the thread in the meantime.

Cheers

Smile

That's roughly what I will be doing


Cowboy, I think this swap requires 10 flies, similar to each other in size, design and recipe.. so make them all look alike

Welcome to the USD swap Cowboy, I'll put your name down and as Roy says the commitment is to tye ten flies.

If you feel that is too big an ask in the next couple of days then let me know and we may be able to let someone else in.2

Great to have you on board looking forward to seeing your flies.
