I'd be up for a fly swap if anyone wants to organize and play host! I don't dare handle all those flies, JJ (17 months) would eat them and Elia (3 years old) would decorate her clothes with them.

Guest Eric Kol

I have hosted and participated in maybe 15 fly swaps over the years. I would love to be part of a carp fly swap. I was just at the vise yesterday tying a pattern called the Muncher. Looks like a great carp fly.

If enough folks wanted to participate and no one else steps forward, I would be willing to host. But I might not be the best choice as I have no web site or blog to post finished photos (my camera can't do nice closeups either) or swap participants. Maybe someone else could handle that end of it and another do the sorting and mailing part??....

It's been a while, but the way I have done it in the past is the people who want to participate make a show of hands....usually about 8-15 folks involved. Each person picks the pattern they want to tie and the host makes sure that there is not repetative patterns. If there are ten folks, then each person ties ten of their pattern and sends it too the host by the due date and in a crush proof box with return postage or post paid envelope. They usually include a lable or "toe tag" with each fly listing the pattern name and recipie....special tying instructions if nessecary.The host then sorts the flys and sends back each tier their box, now with ten new patterns.

If that is different than how you guys have done it, I'd like to hear how you have made it work.

Thats just how we did it last time Eric. Is been a couple of years since the last one, I think it's high time we do another one, I've come up with a few great patterns since then.

......Eric you sound just like the man for the job. :D

the boilie fly is cool but how would you even fish that? cast and wait?

Mostly carp fishing with the fly rod is a sight fishing thing. So while casting to fish you are watching, the "wait" or sometimes unfortunately the pass up of a fly is not long. Sometimes the longest period of time is spent finding the feeding fish.
