All- I've closed the swap out at 6 tyers- Pocono, Wovenstonefly Aroostookbasser and s fontinalis, Hardyreels you guys are in, and I'll jump in to make it an even 6.

For those interested, I'll also be running another salmon and steelhead fly swap for a wider range of patterns (hairwing, single slip whole featherwing, dee, spey styles etc) for 13 tyers. Look for it in a separate thread.

These flies are going to look great on my wall, in a frame .......matted and labelled.

I have about 7500 flies I have collected from swaps over the last 6 years. All are destined to be shadow boxed and on display.

Guys,
If everyone is cool with this, I'm going to change pattern to a somewhat simpler fly.
I may have bitten off more than I can chew with the Jock Scott in terms of getting things right for the swap. I can tie the fly, badly, and I don't want to send a badly tied fly for the swap. I know this is not in the spirit of swaps, where tyers of all skill levels are invited to participate, but I want to tie the best possible fly I can, primarily so I don't let myself down.
That said, I'm going to tie a thunder and lighting.

Hope this is ok.

Eunan

That won't bother me, I had indicated when becoming a participant that I would be tying up a Dee wing pattern and not a married wing fly. I made that decision based on 2 criteria; it is easier to make but still elegant in appearance, and the pattern caught perhaps 50 - 60 fish last year. I use the T&L tied hair wing style for salmon and it is a good fly and catches fish.

Fine with me!

Got me thinking about my own pattern. I'll tie a Blue Charm for this swap.

How about an extension to April 1st?

With sickness in the family, I had to drop out of the winged wet fly swap (my favorite patterns) and I can tell right now that I'll never make March 15th.

So, let me know what you think.
