.... It has been almost two years since the premier crappie fishing forum in North America has had a Jig Swap. As far as I can tell Pepop did the last one in March of 2016. So, if I can get some interest I'll host one for the Crappie spawn of 2018. I'll make it simple, either 1/16oz or 1/8oz in your favorite material and spawn colors. Not gonna limit it to a maximum, but I do want a minimum of 10 tyers. And its gonna be just one jig per tyer., and hand tied and not store bought jigs...

Today is 2/18/18 so sign up will stay open until 2/28/18 midnight. If we can get 10 or more tiers signed by then the deal is on. Jigs to me by 3/16/18 so I can get them out before the major run in April, if you fish with um! Most of ya'll now the steps for packaging, if not there is a sticky at the top of the Jig Makers forum. I'll also copy and past a link to it in this thread. And at the end of sign up I'll PM my address to the participants. When you are tying your jigs tye one for yourself and include it in the shipment. Makes things easier for the host to sort them for return shipment. If I missed sompin Pepop let me know, and lets have some fun with it.

And one last thing, I hope/pray you new tyers join in. It is a great way to get some practice and see different tying techniques from the ones that have been around awhile. So you don't have to be a pro to join, but the pros are welcome as well... Mel <><

And a link to the guidlines...

Packaging Jigs for shipment...

* On each of your jigs, you should attach a small “toe tag” (see attached file example) on which is your member name and the name of your pattern, so that all the jigs can be identified by their recipients . The tag should be a tiny piece of paper to which you can impale the hook point. Do not attach tags with strings or wire as untangling a mess of flies can be a nightmare for your swapmeister.
* Then place your jigs in an appropriately sized container (this container will be returned to you filled with all the treasures from the other swappers). Things to avoid are film canisters, cardboard boxes or any hard breakable plastic boxes. Some swappers may wish to package their jigs in 2x3 individual zip-locks or paper envelopes. That's great, but you have to remember to still include a envelope for the return of jigs that are not packaged in the same manner.
* Now place your filled package in a self-addressed (possibly padded) postage paid return envelope, but DO NOT seal it. It would also be good to include the tying instructions for your pattern. Now place your return package in a larger manila or tyvek envelope, address it to your swapmeister and ship it on out before the deadline date.
* DO NOT run your self-addressed postage paid return envelope through a meter (the one where the postage is dated and printed on the envelope). Always use regular stamps. $1.68 should be sufficient to put on your self-addressed postage paid return envelope.
* It would also be a nice gesture to include an extra jig or two for your hard working swapmeister...he will appreciate it

#1.Jigs-bagged and tagged in 2"x3" jewelry bags




#2.Larger ziploc bag to hold all jigs.
(Please place your name on the bag or box.)




#3.SASE (use stamps- NOT METERED)Do not seal this envelope.
I usually used 6 stamps.




#4.Address the larger envelope with all contents to the swapmeister.

Crazy Angler might have a good week at this rate. I just sent him about $70.
