As you all know, these flies come in a wide variety of shapes, forms and patterns, but they all have one thing in common; they catch great looking, good-sized fish!
So, here's the proposal: Salmon Fly pattern of your choosing (no egg patterns please; I know, they work, but let's set them aside for this swap); 12 tyers maximum; due date of March 1st. That gives everybody time to fully recover from the Holidays and gets us petty close to being back into fishing season.
Here's the roster and the patterns, as it stands now:
1. Joni - Bomber
2. McNerney - TBD
3. Diver Dan - Green Butt Skunk
4. Pocono - Alaska Mary Ann
5. Peregrines - TBD
6. Hardyreels- TBD
7. Arfishnbear - Dead Prawn
8. Aroostookbasser - Miramichi Cosseboom
9. Kerry Pitt - The Mallet
10. tob1 - Nesten
11. Cicvara - Milo
12. ChrisinselwynNZ - Red Abbey
We've got a full swap now. This will be fun; big hooks, interesting materials and some nice looking flies.
Here's my address for sending in your flies:
PO Box 747
Pocono Pines, PA 18350
These are the world top 12 tiers
a bit surprised to see Larry in second place...
