lets kick around some theme ideas to get this going. off the top of my head some could be...

home town flies (flies you use on your local waters)
stillwater flies
nymphs/wets
involving certain materials/techniques(clear cure goo, hairwings, etc...)
specific spring patterns since spring is around the corner (cant wait)

just throwing a few out there

dry flies
obscure flies that others might not be aware off. (local flies?)
and/or patterns over a certain age (100 years?)
Anything but a Wooly Bugger

I like those suggestions. It could instigate some research and discovery.

Some other possible themes:
*Strictly Emergers
*Leeches and Larvae
*Size 18's ...(or 16's)

I like: the fly you tie that catches more fish than the others. I lack the skills for an historical reenactment fly...

I saw 'em. I could do without that kind of lucky. I hear Bruce Jenner just ordered a pair. Myself I have owned a couple pair of Red Balls.

I don't follow anything Bruce Jenner does, and I fear for those who do.
And according to your math, you have had four Red Balls.
Sounds painful.

I once owned a pair of Red Ball waders.
They were leak-free for two weeks.
I never slept in them... thus voiding the non-existing warranty.

Seriously though I have owned lots of Red Balls.

Red Ball hippers cleat sole
Red Ball hippers felt sole
Red Ball boot foot waders cleat sole
Red Ball Master series boot foot felt sole
Red Ball Flyweight stocking foot
Red Ball Flyweight Supplex stocking foot (the beige ones with neoprene bootie
Red Ball neoprene stocking foot
Red Ball wading boots.

Somewhere in between were a pair Hodgeman boots, Borger boots and Seal Dri latex waders (horrible things)

I have been a lurker for some time in the depths, but my desire to do more Adirondack brook trout fishing has made me rise to take to participating. I would to like to join in the fly swap and offer the theme "Backcountry Brookie Bait".

I just did a search of Glen's Dr. Breck fly. That's a good choice: Classic brookie wet flies.

Gman,

Took a 3 pounder on one of those once. Brookie came up and swirled on it as soon as it hit the surface. Guess I hit him on the head.

Send just 1 fly or one for each that participates? think I understand from looking at 2014 thread. I'm in.

Send in N-1 flies, where N is the number of participants. Look forward to having you join us!

as a math teacher I deeply appreciate your method of communication. It is however customary to use a lower case n as in "n-1" haha

How many tiers do you usually get?

Depending on fly type, I might be interested. I'm more of a soft hackle tier than other styles and wouldn't want to embarrass myself....
