Time to sign up for the 2017 Christmas Fly Swap
We are now taking entries for our ever-exciting annual Christmas Fly Swap. We are shooting for about 12 entries. Sign up today and we will let you know how many flies to tie. Don’t forget to bring a “toe tag” for each of your flies with the fly pattern materials list so everyone can duplicate your flies. See instructions and sign up below. Thanks again and see you at the social Dec. 19th at 5 pm at Kalispell Brewing 412 S Main St, Kalispell.
Rules: Yes, there are rules. Each participant will tie a single pattern for the swap. Each participant will tie as many copies as there are participants, plus two that will be collected for a special collection to be auctioned off at our annual spring banquet. We’ll let you know how many flies you need to tie before the banquet. Try to not duplicate a pattern already being tied by another person. Each fly should have a “toe tag”, or small piece of paper with the pattern recipe so tiers can duplicate the pattern.
The chapter will provide containers for flies at the Christmas party. When you arrive, place one each of your flies in the provided containers. Following the party, you will collect the set of flies in your container and you will have a complete set of flies to take home.
Here’s who has signed up so far.
DON’T DUPLICATE PATTERNS!
