    =Caddis Swap / CDC - Snowshoe - Deer Hair=

    Anybody for a caddis swap?

    I missed the last fly swap one and had an idea.

    The following (see photo below) are three patterns for caddis using three different materials:

    CDC, Snowshoe Rabbit and Deer Hair

    Patterns are by Nyles, Strolis and Matthews respectively.

    See photo.

    These patterns look great.

    An angler ties three flies of each pattern for a total of nine flies per angler.

    Five or six angler participate.

    One angler gets chosen to collect the flies for distribution.

    Total of 45 to 54 flies for distribution to the tyers that participate.

    Won't be able to do this in the spring. The time is now.

    Tight lines,

    I can if there is enough interest.

    Looking for five tyers.

    Each tyer does three each of shown caddis patterns - CDC, Deer Hair and Snowshoe. There are good videos of Strolis, Nyles and Matthews less than five minutes in length for tutorial and recipes.

    URL's are available.

    5 tyers x 9 flies (@3 CDC; @ 3 Deer Hair @3 Snowshoe) =

    45 beautiful Caddis flies just in time for spring.

    Such a deal!

    Please advise.
    Thank you.

    Re: =Caddis Swap / CDC - Snowshoe - Deer Hair=

    I have bin drawers full of more fly tying material and flies than I will ever use, and of course I don't have some of the needed materials for these flies.





    This means I need to do a little online shopping.

    I have foot surgery on 2/17 (plantar release surgery) which will have me out of work for a week and plan on doing some tying.

    Size 12 caddis flies is my most used size, so count the LyNcH in for 9 flies!!

    I also tie up enough extra "usual" patterns as well so everyone can see how they are one of the easiest and one of the most effective patterns out there as a dry and emerger.

    Thanks for doing this, been looking forward to getting involved in a swap.

    The LyNcH disclaimer: I don't tie the best dry fly patterns, but I'll give it my 110%.

    Re: =Caddis Swap / CDC - Snowshoe - Deer Hair=

    You should have seen how all this stuff was stored up until the last month in my tiny room. I am slowly starting the move of all my rod building and fly tying stuff in the nice sized mancave, I'll finally have room!!! Scary thing is that as I empty my small room, I still have piles, boxes and a closet full of crap to sort through.

    ---------- Post added at 09:18 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:07 PM ----------

    Here's a couple shot of the cave, still in the set up phase and won't be done and settled in for another month or 2. 10' ceiling is my favorite part of the room.

    You're a good man LyNcH.

    Good luck with the surgery and hope you'll be back astream in no time.

    You're in for the CDC/Snowshoe/Deer Hair Caddis Swap

    Here are videos:

    Trout Fever in Barryville, NY showed an interest in this caddis swap.

    That's three tyers.

    Two or three more tyers on the BB will complete the swap.

    Hope to hear from two or three more tiers.

    Once we have the roster we can hammer out details.

    Good use of downtime and you'll have great patterns for use this spring!

    Thank you and tight lines,

    Thats like the pot calling the kettle black. Go ahead, post some pictures of YOUR tying space.

    Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.
