    Default Who's up for AOD's Inaugural Fly Swap?

    Figure it's time to get 10 or 15 like minded folks together for AOD's first Fly Swap! Dust off the vise, snip some hair of fido and let's get this thing off the ground! You don't have to be an expert tyer or even good, just a love for tying flies! Any suggestions on a Alaska focused fly theme?

    Last call for anyone wanting in on our fly swap! We will close the group at 12 tyers or Sunday Feb. 18th, whichever comes first! As it's our first swap, let's keep the FLY THEME simple: Any Alaska trout fly!


    Fly Swap Rules

    Each participant is responsible for tying (12) flies! The extra set will go to David for hosting ODD!
    Deadline for returning flies is Tax Day - April 15th.
    Send flies in a protected package – film canister, Altoids tin etc. PM me for address
    Include fly name, your name, ODD user name and return address


    When you decide what to tie, add it to this thread so we don’t have duplicates!

    No return postage needed – I will pick up the return shipping of your flies

    PM me when flies have been sent and I will update tying status

    Once I receive the flies, I will post pics and we can vote on our favorite fly! Hopefully this will generate more fly swap interest and the winner will receive an assortment of hand tied flies courtesy of yours truely!

    Above all lets have some fun!

    Default Clarification

    Each tyer ties (12) identical flies! When I mail your new assortment out, you will get (11) since I won't be including your own fly...that's what gives us the extra set! The naming is entirely up to you, but it helps in identification. I had a PM from another tyer.....that makes 10! 2 spots still need adoption!

    Looks like Clice is taking a small lead in the polls..... That "steak and egg" fly is a beauty!
