Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Fly swaps are an opportunity for fly tiers to exchange flies with their fellow enthusiasts.
YOU tie a fly - 1 for each participating member – and you receive one from each of the members
in the swap.
One of the members agrees to be the coordinator, thereafter called the “Swapmeister.”
For this swap, your Swapmeister will be ME.

Swap Theme: Say NO TO POPPERS

Any non-popper fly which you have taken bluegill with, or is aknown gill getter is welcome...
anything but poppers.
Deadlines:
a. Deadline to join and declare which fly you are tying - November 24, 2013.
To join, send a PERSONAL MESSAGE to ME, (the Swapmeister) and tell me which fly you're tying.
You will be added to the list, along with your chosen fly. Have a backup fly, too, in case of
duplication. Once the cutoff date passes, you must wait until next time.
b. Deadline to deliver your flies to the Swapmeister via USPS – December 14, 2013
c. PARTICIPATION IS LIMITED to 15 members   

Once you are officially part of the swap, get busy and tie your flies. TIE ONE FOR EACH MEMBER, INCLUDING YOURSELF.
Don’t delay! Make one for each member of the swap. Make ‘em nice and neat, too, then tag them.
Once your flies are complete, mail them in the proper package (see below) ALONG WITH
a S.A.S.E envelope or re-mailing postage of $3 to me at this address:

David the Swapmeister
296 West Creek Rd., Leesville, SC  29070
(your pre-paid postage ensures the Swapmeister isn’t stiffed for it.)

Once I receive all the flies, I'll split them up so everyone gets one of each fly from the other
members. Then, I'll rush them back to you.

IMPORTANT DETAILS: PLEASE READ
Mailing - mail your flies in a padded envelope, but put them in a crush resistant,
REUSABLE container. The most common is an Altoids tin, or something like it.
I use this container to RETURN all your new flies in. So don't send them in just an envelope.
And, please, DONT FORGET $3 RETURN POSTAGE.

Tagging – Please ‘toe-tag’ your flies with the name of your pattern and your Big Bluegill name.
A toe-tag is a small strip of paper that you stick on the hook of each fly. If you tie with barbless
hooks, tie a small piece of mono to your fly’s eye and tape the tag to that.

If all participants follow these simple direction, each of you will receive your box BACK, full of
different flies from the other participants, by return mail.

Thanks everyone and have fun!

Allen Morgan - Flicted Damsel

(what the heck does "flicted" mean, anyway?)

I think it's a contracted version of the word "afflicted" or "conflicted"???  Not sure.  That was the name given on the FAOL website.

I've got three in my production box right now.  Looks like I need to start tying :)

Dick Tabbert - Grass Shrimp

ME - Squirrely Charlies

Count me in I'll be doing freshwater grass shrimp.

I guess what ever container we send we get back with our flies in it. I hope I'm saying that properly is that correct David.

Thats right, Dick. You send it with your shrimp in it + return postage - I send it back with your flies.
