Saltwater Streamer Fly Swap, Spring 2012
 
Thanks to "theboz" for suggesting this one.

How about a Saltwater Streamer Swap ?

Due Date of May 1, 2012

To resist corrosion, all patterns should be tied on "saltwater" hooks.

This swap is limited to the first 13 swappers that say "I'm in" -- tie up 12 flies and you'll get back 12 flies (one from each of the other swappers)

As always, tyers of all abilities and experience are welcome.

I'll be tying the classic Guitar Minnow........"The Penobscot" variant.

A pattern used up here to target stripers on inshore excursions.

Great Gator you're in and it looks like we have a May 1 due date.

Grassonfly since this will be a saltwater streamer swap the patterns folks are tying should work on a wide variety of saltwater gamefish--everything from striped bass and bluefish up here in the NE to redfish, specs, snook, spanish macs etc down your way.

I will tie up a Clouser fly for this one. Something in a size 6 as that is what size SS hooks I have...
