Tiers- When you join the swap please adhere to the deadlines. Please use PM with the Swapmeister for communications about the swap.

Tiers- either post on this Facebook thread when you have mailed in your flies or PM the Swapmeister.

Tiers- When mailing your flies, please send them in a strong enough and big enough box to protect them and to hold all of the flies you will be receiving back. Mark the box with your name and address. Mail them at least 5 days before the end of the swap so they will get to the Swapmiester by the deadline date or earlier.

Tiers- include in with your flies a self addressed envelope that is strong enough for the fly box you send and will receive back. Include postage (please do not use metered mail strips on return envelopes) or money (I do not recommend sending cash) in the proper amount to send the flies back to you.

Tiers- if you want your flies sent back to you Priority Mail be sure to include enough postage to cover the increased cost over First Class Postage.

Tiers- include with your flies a toetag (small piece of paper) with the name of the fly and your email addy so the other tiers can email you for the fly tying instructions.

Swapmeister- when Ben See receives flies from the tiers, he will let them know on the Facebook post that he have received them.

Swapmeister- once Ben receive's all flies from all tiers sort them, get them all packaged up and deliver them to the post office in a timely manner. Notify all tiers on this Facebook post that he has mailed out the flies to the tiers.

Tiers- when you receive the swap flies back in the mail notify the Swapmeister on this Facebook post that you have received them.

Swapmeister- Ben See will message you his address for shipping of your tied flies once you have posted that you want to participate.

Swapmeister- will take high quality photos of your flies and feature them on Team SAA. Also, Ben See has a swim tank that will be put to use for video footage fun!

Above all else everyone have a lot of fun with the swap and be open to suggestions and comments, we can all learn from each other.
