    Cardstock Sheet of the Member's "Numbered Toe Tags" on the curve of the hook of each fly...

    12 preaddressed 6" x9" mailing envelopes (six are for mailing in to the swap, other six are for the return boxes of sorted fly pattern from the ten members of the Beginner's Only Fly Swap...

    As Swapmeister, I will at the end of each of the five swaps be attaching the Photo of the Fly Pattern, who dressed material listing of the material use to create the fly pattern and photo to each member of the swap... I attach each months fly swap sheet to each member of the swap...each member has a complete 8-1/2 x 11" format of their fly pattern submitted..
