Fly Swap 2008

Recommended Posts

DEADhead

With the onset of cold temps and cabin fever, it is that time of year to start tying hardcore, and organize a fly swap.

The swap will be open to the first dozen that respond to this post. Please include a working email address in your post.

This year's theme will be: NYMPHS

The tentative due date is postmarked by March 1st. That way I can receive the flies, redistribute them, and send them out so that you receive them before the Brule opener on 3/29 ;\) .

Once the 12 entrants are determined, I will post the list here, and send an email to all entrants, containing the rules for the swap and my contact information.

Thanks and happy tying!

I'll need to pass.

But can next years theme be "crab flies" or "minnows"?

That's all I got the fingers for. \:\(\:\(\:\)

I have to pass too. No place to set up the vice at the moment.

(no cheering)

Last year was very good! Great flies!

Hopefully next year?

No need to feel excluded Craig. If you want to tie us up a crab pattern, knock yourself out. If a crayfish pattern can be considered a "nymph" fly, why not a crab...

I'm not against sand colored "crawfish" and I don't think the carp will be either ;\)

No worries man. I don't feel excluded. Truth is I'm staring at my tying table and a lack if Tiemco 811S in size 4. I was all motivated to tie up a bunch of charlies, merkins, and gotcha clousers. But only two number 4's. Sometimes I wish I lived closer to a city. But not for long!

Tonight I spend making an order list. In a week the tying begins. Reality is that I have soooo many bonefish flies, I know I can pull off this trip without tying any. But it's sort of become a ritual. Each year I use maybe 15, lose maybe 5. Don't tell my wife! And I'm throwing that bend-back from last years swap in the kit. It'll score, and I'll be sure to photo that one!

too bad I couldn't help ya out tonight, I have well over a hundred of those size 4's left from last year's order to hook and hackle. I probably only tied up about 50 flies on those 4's last winter. I need to put an order in too, for some Mustad R90 4x strong nymph hooks. Looks like I'll have to go the hook and hackle or J Stockard's route again this year.

So far the list is at 10 tyers (not including me). I will keep the entries open until the morning of Feb 1st. to fill the last two spots. If they have not been filled, we leave it at 11 tyers. I will send the email with the final instructions out on Feb 1, or until the last two spots are filled, whichever is sooner. Thanks all!

If there are no objections, I will add erickol to the swap, as there were still vacancies before the close.

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.
    • CigarGuy
      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.

      I guess I was being to kind. Nah nah nah nah, ....Turn out the lights already. LMAO!How Disappointing. Wolves your next......
