TOE TAGS FOR FLY SWAPS ? AN AID FOR FLY PATTERN IDENTIFICATION
Here I am, sitting at my computer with the fly boxes from the January Soft Hackle Fly Swap of Beginner's. I have 7 of the 8 boxes from this swap, and all of the dressed flies are beautifully dressed.
I have only one problem that has bother me for many years during these swaps. Some of the tyers in these fly swaps use hooks that do not have barbs, or the barbs have been smashed. This causes the Toe Tag to slide off of the hook.
