I've seen fly swaps on here before, but never a teaser swap. I'd love to do one, and be willing to organize it. I tie my own teasers, and it fun to tie and fun to catch on them. I'd like to get 10 guys to do it. Hopefully I'm allowed to do this on here...

The way it would work would is you would tie 9 of the same teasers, send them to me with an extra stamp in the envelope (for return of the flies), and I'll send the flies back out - obviously I'd take some pictures to show off everyone's work :thumbsup:. Say have the flies to me by March 1st?

If anyone is interested, just respond to this thread so I can gauge interest. First 9 guys to respond to this thread saying you want in are in. As long as there's enough interest, I'll PM you my contact info so we can get this going.

There has been one running for the past few yrs.by Russ(rjf3) one of the mods of this forum.I think in part it was a part fundraiser.Prehaps Russ will jump in.Last yr. was my first in the swap and I have 11 great samples from others to study when I sit down to tie some teasers.
I would be interested as I find it a great way to see what others are doing,and find that helps me be a little more creative for one who has been tying for 3 yrs.

Count me in.:thumbsup:

Now that you say that about the fundraiser it rings a bell. I think one fly from everyone was donated - which is a good idea. Maybe Russ will jump in here. I like that idea though, everyone would tie 10 teasers, 9 for the other guys and one for the fundraiser that the other swaps went to.

I don't want to steal anyone's thunder - if there's a fly swap going on or if one is going to be done that's been going on for years, I have no problem not doing it. I just never had good timing getting in the teaser swaps, and didn't see one this year yet, so I figured I'd give it a go.

This was part of my thinking in wanting to do this. It'd be nice to see what some other guys tie and study them :thumbsup:.

Awesome Russ thanks! Shoot me a PM with info for the donation flies if you are interested. If not, I'm going to do it with a donation fly either way, and I'll figure out where do make the donation to later. There was something on here or another site about a young kid who got paralyzed playing hockey and they are doing a raffle/fundraiser for him at the Berkely Fishing Flea Market so if they are in by then thats an option also.

I'll start another thread to get this swap going.

Not yet, I would like to get 10 guys, right now there are only 5. I'm fine with 5 but would be nice to get a little more. My flies are tied are ready to go :D
