    Default It's time for Swap #1 - Streamers

    Here we go; the first swap of the 2013-14 season.

    This one will be streamers. No limits on the type of streamer, other then to say that this is for fresh water species, or species that return to fresh water to spawn.

    So, anything from your basic Woolly Bugger to your fully dressed Atlantic Salmon Fly will do just fine; hackled, winged (hair and/or feathers), spun, etc. No size limits, so as small as you want to as large as you want.

    We'll kick this one off on October 1st and finish it up, with all flies due in, by November 1st. Limit of 12 tyers, since some streamer patterns are challenging to tie and require more time. Everyone ties up 12 of the same flies, sends them to me and I'll return one each of all the different patterns back to you, plus you'll get your own back so that you'll have a compete set.

    Sign up below and PM me with any questions that you may have.

    It's been awhile since we tied streamers, this should be fun!

    I'm on at #1 Allan, thinking I'll tie Light Spruce, a good looking fly that catches well.

    I would like to join in and will be doing a fly of my own creation in a size 8. I haven't named it yet as I haven't been able to fish with it but should be a good one. It is a feather winged fly with a stacked teal and pink wing.

    Sounds good, feather wings are good fish catchers in almost any color combo.

    As a one of the forums newest noobs, If you will allow I would like to sign up for a basic Woolly. I'll fancy it up with some quality materials but it will not be a very complex tie. I have only been tying them for about an hour but early returns indicate I can tie something that looks pretty professional and should catch fish. I will make sure they hold up in the water as I won't participate if I can't contribute something worthy.

    You're in ia trouter! Every streamer swap needs a Woolly Bugger, so that slot's yours. Good luck!
