Welcome Cicvara!

We're coming along pretty well with this swap now. One slot left and we'll have our 12 and the swap will be closed.

I'll keep you all updated.

I should take more business trips (just kidding - absolutely, just kidding!); come back and we have a full swap with 12 members. Check the first post for the full roster of tyers and the designations that I have so far.

Be sure to send me your pattern when you've made a decision on it and I'll post it to the thread.

I'm also adding my address to the first post, so that you'll have all of the relevant information in one place and with easy access.

This is going to be a great swap!

Joni,

Nice Bomber tie. I've been seeing Bomber patterns for years up in Maine and a lot of them have been changed so much that they don't look anything like the original pattern. Yours looks a lot like the original.

According to Paul Marriner, Modern Atlantic Salmon Flies, the Bomber was developed by one Reverend Elmer Smith, who adapted if from a Deer Hair Mouse pattern that he used to fish for sea run Browns on the Royal River in Yarmouth, ME. That river is about 5 miles, as the crow flies, from our cottage and we spend a lot of time on that river each year. So, having that dry to work with next season will be a lot of fun for me.

By the way, is that a trout in the background getting ready to go for that Bomber!?! I sure hope so - because there aren't any Salmon left in the Royal River - LOL!

Hi Chris,

That sounds like a good pattern. The rusty brown squirrel wing will be interesting.

FYI - there are some conversions of classic Atlantic Salmon flies to New England streamer styles that are becoming popular with some of the fishermen up here in the Northeast; because they work well for catching fish. I'm not sure if this is what you have in mind, but here's a hairwing tie of the Red Abbey that might not be too far from what you're thinking about:

If you're generally interested in this type of conversion, then here's a link that might be of interest to you.
