Flyfish@ history of the list

 Swaps from the List    ff@ homepage

The FF@ "fly swaps" are quite interesting and very unique. One member will announce that they are organizing a swap around a particular theme, such as Salmon flies, FF@ members will register with the coordinator via email, tie a specified number of flies, and then mail them to the coordinator. The coordinator, sometimes called the "swapmeister", will mail packages of flies out to the participants. FF@ swaps have included everything from the expected flies, to leaders, extra materials, and pet fur! Past swaps have been too numerous to list but some have included:
swap theme host
Midge Swap midges Matt Jorgensen
Caddis Swap 100 caddis Byard Miller
