I'd like to get a hopper swap going. I'm considering a move to Montana/Wyoming and my favorite style of fishing in that area is throwing hoppers. I do understand that I am new here, but rest assured that I am very involved on other forums under the same username and I have also been involved in some great swaps here in the past under my old username (which i have forgotten over the years of inactivity). I will gladly act as swapmaster, unless someone who is more established than I am would like to step up. I'm hoping for 13 guys, so that we will all get a dozen flies back. And I'm thinking a deadline of March 31st would be appropriate. If you are interested, sign up here and we will get the ball rolling.
I'll be tying a pattern that I just came up with. It's probably been tied by someone in the past and is probably named, so I'm not going to try and take credit for it, but here is a look:
Thanks Guys !
List of Participants:
I'm glad to sign in on your swap. Since I'm an European tier there are some isues about the postage we must resolve. I intend to ty a yellow hopper with pheasant tail legs. Hooksize wil be size 10 hopperhook.
If you can fill the roster I'll tie up something
I guess this swap does not fill up. What do we do? We can ty 6 flies each so we get 3 times 2 patterns. Or we could call it a day. It's up to you JTR, you are the swapmeister so please decide. Waiting for more participants is no option for me. Please respond!
