Default Married Wing Salmon Fly Swap

Thanks to s fontinalis for the suggestion.

This will be a salmon fly swap for flies with married wings. Because of the difficulty of tying these patterns we'll limit the swap to 6 tyers and put a due date of April 1, 2012

We can do additional salmon fly swaps (or any other swaps) if there's enough interest, just shoot me a PM and let me know what you'd like to see.

Note: Because of the time required to tie these complex patterns, this swap has a limit of 6 tyers

1. s fontinalis- Thunder and Lightning RECEIVED
2. Aroostockbasser - Nighthawk Variant
3. Wovenstonefly - Black Dog
4. Hardyreels RECEIVED
5. peregrines

Great Brent you're in.

Note: limit changed to 7 tyers for this swap because of the time consuming nature of these patterns.

so... what's happening with this swap? is it still going to happen. I'll be running out of time to tie soon but will play as long as the number of tiers dont get too high. It's been about a month since anyone signed up so I cant help but think It will be a small swap.

I'll tie a black dog

Nice looking fly there, Allen!

I like the way that you've got the hackle working in an upsweep against the upper GP crest feather; sort of a double complement; the upward GP tail with and the upward hackle.

Not sure if I can get fired up for this one or not; married wings are a lot of work. If it was kept to 4-6 members, then maybe I could make it work.

I agree. If you join that would make 4. no one has joined in a month so were probably good.

limit is 7, there is currently 4. we can prob lock it down at that if we contact Mark and let him know. I suggested this swap, if everyone is agreed about the lock down i'll message him and tell him to close it at 4.

Thoughts?

OK, I'll take the heat on this number thing.

I don't want to come off like a prima donna because I'm not one, but I couldn't do more than 6 married wing Salmon flies; I just don't have the time. If you can stay with 4-6 then I'll join in. If you want more, then I'll understand. No hard feelings either way from my side.

Now, if you want to open it up a little to slip wing Salmon flies or to whole wing Salmon flies; not restricted to married wings, then I'm fine all the way up to a dozen, or more. Here are some past examples of whole wing flies taken from the Salmon Fly Tie-Along:
