Swap will follow the boards swap rules, plus Bighand Swap Rules that make fly swaps so much easier.
1. Tie the fly pattern you have selected and have them mailed by due date.
2. The tier is to toe tag each fly with the fly name and their name.
3. Mail flies in a container that will stand up to the mail system. Make sure the fly container is large enough to hold the swap flies. It is helpful to place an address label on the fly container. No round film canisters!
4. Flies should be mailed in an envelope that will hold a second envelope for return mailing and flies. Bubble wrap envelopes seem to be best for second envelope.
5. This second envelope will have tiers home address for return mailing written on it by the tier submitting the flies. It will also have the the right postage stamped on it for the returning mailing. Do not send money with your flies expecting me to go to the post office to take care of this for you and then return unspend monies.
6. I will keep those in the swap updated and reminders if needed.
7. Things do come up for use all. So keep the group updated if you need to drop out.
8. I will sort the flies and have them mailed out quickly.
9. Plus as Swap Host if your flies do not make the grade they will be returned to you.
Note: When the fly swap is filled, I will PM each of the tiers with Host mailing information.
I contaced Fishunter seeking board permission to host a fly swap.

Read all of BigHand's first entry on this thread. He tells it pretty well on all the rules. Basicly you tie 12 of your streamer fly (12 of the same fly), then you mail to BigHand in an enavelope with another return self stamped self addressed envelope included inside. Once Bighand gets everyones fly packs he will then devide them up and send out one of each of the tier's flies (minus your fly) back to you in the self addressed envelope.
