The Rules of the Fly Swap:

1. Choose a person to run the swap...hereinafter known as The Swapmeister. Probably gonna be me (Drifter).

2.Begin a list of fly tiers who want to participate. An ideal number would be one or two dozen folks. Let's say 20 people sign up.

3. Establish a deadline to submit your flies to the Swapmeister. (01/31/99)

4. Choose a fly pattern to tie. Check the list so as not to duplicate a pattern someone else is tying. Tie 20 flies of the same pattern. Everyone will get one of your flies, including yourself. Preferably tie a pattern that works on local streams.

5. Tag all flies with: name, fly name, and email address. The tag can be a small piece of paper that you "impale" the hook point into.

6. Send in the fly recipe, detailed tying instructions and how/where to fish the fly or a short story to go along with the fly.

7. Place flies in a crush-proof container (like an altoids tin) and include a self addressed stamped envelop with your flies. The return postage should be the same as it costs to send them to the Swapmeister at:  Steve Keeble,  362 Keith Road,   Newnan, Georgia 30263.                                                                                                                                         You will get your flies back in the same container that you sent them in - Make sure it is crush-proof!

8. All participants should now have a nice collection of hand tied flies and recipes, which are effective in our region.

We could even vote on the most deadly fly, ugly fly, worthless fly, etc. Lets set January 31st, 1999 as a target date to have the flies completed and in the hands of the Swapmeister.

The Caddis Swap 1999 is now underway!           caddis.jpg (14080 bytes)
