Flies arrived, great set of flies guys... I'm actually glad you tied your wee nymph Garth, I have a caught a fair number of fish on your nymph from previous swaps until they were lost bust off etc :lol:

Returned from my annual (this year, wettish and not as successful in terms of fish landed) jaunt in the hills, with Iconoclast's Dad, to find the swap flies had arrived. Thanks, Jack and thanks to all who tied.

That's good to hear, Wilki. I've often wondered how others have got on with that nymph. I'm very glad to hear it works for you - it certainly does for me.

All the best

And as an added bonus please for those in the last " tie in" consider this possible offer.

I purchased some foam tube (gap filler) from the local DIY store at the weekend, the price was a special. So I managed to get 100 metres of 6mm white closed cell foam solid tube at a very very good price.

Now I cant possibly think of how I could use 100 metres when you use about 12mm per fly (two eyes/post) - that works out at about 8000 flies!

How does this sound;

If people send me a self addressed envelope (wee plastic NZ pre paid) with (any) 5 flies, I will return up to 5 metres (up to what I can squash in that envelope) free. There are 11 other fly tiers in this last round so we know them and just PM me if you want to be involved.

What is left over I can send about 20 metres to Steve to add to his stock in the shop if you want Steve. That should leave me with about 20+ metres - or about 1500 flies to tie!

Good or bad idea? I will hold the offer open for a week until 5pm 30th March

George

Collected my flies from my PO box today - (I am in Melbourne) hence the delay. Thanks Badger and to everyone for an eclectic and interesting 'rack'. Lots of inspiration for future variants in my own tying. Will include some instructions if I do a future swap. My contribution was a variation from a Davie McPhail mayfly.
Looking forward to tying them on and seeing them deliver!
Cheers,
Kiwioz

Thanks to all for a great swap and thanks to Jack for organising the event. Some interesting flies in the mix which I will try and copy. Also thanks for the extra pointers provided regarding the tying of hackled flies.

Ah looks like you guys had a great swap again - OK so I offered a prize for the fishiest fly but I think just doing a simple draw out of the hat is going to be a lot simpler for me!!

So I've just printed off all the names - once the other half gets back from supping coffee I'll get her to draw the winner!!

And the winner is... Salmo Brown Trout! Well done Paul, so the prize is 1 box of TMC's finest - a 100 box or if you would prefer a selection can do 3 of the 20 packs - let me know and I'll send them off
