Here is a picture of some recent ties I did for a friend. I was wondering if you guys think one of these would be a good fit for the Jig swap. Haven't done to much jigging with hand ties in the spring, or pretty much any other time. I have almost always used plastics. Any thoughts or critiques would be appreciated.
Thanks, RODS454

Looks to me like the bar just went up...roflmao

Personally I would fish with any of um. Thanks for posting, might just bring a few more in that was sitin on the fence... thumb


For the folks that are in the swap if ya'll want to post up what you are thinking about tying that is fine. After I receive all the jigs and get them sorted and heading back home, I will take photos of them and post them at the end of the thread.
I know that some folks fish with them and some that don't. I still have all the jigs from all the swaps I have been in. Now that I have a man cave they will go in shadow boxes on the wall. Again any level of tyers are for sure welcome. The main idea behind a swap is to get more experience, and to see different materials and techniques on the way they are used. It is a great way for some of us to get experience that we normally wouldn't. Its good to see ya'll are having fun with it, makes my heart happy..

I thought about these also, but I'm not sure how they would hold up to shipping. The last swap I was in, many years ago, we used Altoids breather freshener containers. The metal ones. Please elaborate on y'alls preferred method.
Thanks

This is from the sticky:
Packaging/Mailing Requirements:

* 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!

It doesn't matter to me how you send them to me. I will get the return container per your instructions back to you. Just try to have the postage covered, I would appreciate it.

Thanks to photobucket we no longer have any pictures, but a little closer to the end of sign up I'll post some more pictures...
