Welcome to the 1999 NGTO Caddis Swap Web Page. The Drifter wants to extend a special thanks to those of you that participated in our 1st Annual NGTO Fly Swap. It was an overwhelming success! So, by popular demand, I present to you: The 1999 NGTO Caddis Swap.

Rules and Regs

1.    This Swap will have the always productive Caddis Fly as it's theme. All participants are asked to tie a pattern which represents a particular stage in the life of a Caddis fly, ie pupae, nymph, emerger, adult.

2.    The Caddis Swap will be limited to 18 participants. Once the Swap has reached capacity, I will keep a list of "alternates" to replace anyone who should drop out. If you feel you can not make the deadline, please let The Drifter know so an alternate can take your place.

3.    The remaining rules are pretty much the same as the 1st Annual NGTO Fly Swap rules with the following exceptions:

             - Do not send in the recipe and short story until asked to do so by The Drifter. By e-mailing it later, I can "copy" and "paste" your ramblings onto the Swap Page as opposed to my "one-finger" typing.

             - Please send a photo of yourself with your flies. I can then scan and post it with your fly photo so folks can put a name with a face. You could also email a "jpeg" or "gif" file of yourself with the recipe if you would prefer. Preferably a photo of yourself striking a fishing pose in a stream, or holding some trophy trout you claim to have caught. With Aaron's permission, I can copy your photo if it's been posted on NGTO.

4.    The Drifter must receive all entries by March 31, 1999. Everyone should then have an ample supply of Caddis Flies for the upcoming Spring fishing season.
