2017 Shrimp Swap (Featuring root wad)

kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

My daughter put a cocktail shrimp in with her sea monkeys about a week ago. Found it today.

Heero[CntRmbrPwd] wrote:root wad has seemingly forgotten to start the 2017 Shrimp Swap as he had said he would so Ill go ahead and get this topic started.

The theme is shrimp flies and these can be shrimp flies of any style and tied for any species of fish. Im expecting a lot of participation this year so Ill open the swap up to 50 participants which means everyone ties 50 of the same fly (or 49 if you dont want one of your own returned).

I am headed that way in the middle of August.
I wish you all the best and am currently copying some of your above flies.
Cheers,

You call that a mustache? Swap flies are now in transit. Next stop Oslo.
