Thread: Fly of the Month??

  1. Default Fly of the Month??

    I find the forum to be quite still with very little than the odd report or "use the search function". Understandable for a forum that has so much content that was generated over a number of years.

    However, in the interest of all - why don't we start a Fly of the Month type board, with a pattern being establish at the 1st of every month, people who feel they *want* to "enter" ties their version of the said fly, and they post a picture of it. Plain and simple, very little admin, and at least we'll be seeing some new content and perhaps even some nice twists on a pattern?? Yay or Nay?

    I like the idea but would prefer it to be generic so that we can see different people's different ideas.

    As an example, it could be Fly of the Month is Hoppers, as opposed to fly of the month is Ed's Hopper.

    I think this would be awesome actually!

    you could also then have a vote at the end for everyone's favourite, and the winner of that chooses the next month's fly.

    Jip, that is also open - could be Hoppers OR a Ed's Hopper (and variations) depending on what we choose to do that month. Maybe alternate per month, one month a category, one month a pattern and variations thereof?

    The idea is to get some different inputs on a "single topic" where we could learn from one another.
