OK guys, we got this thing rolling!! :yahoo:

 

FIVE slots still open and it's not just limited to those guys FROM the West Coast, but anyone who want to tie a western style fly, size 12 and under. Western as in west of the Colorado Rockies! Tons of great patterns for trout and steel head out this way so feel free to jump in if you've got a notion to! :D

Thanks for the reply, mustang mike.

My choice will be a morman girl streamer, size 8.

 

Should be a fun swap, thanks for hosting,

Pat Carroll

The only fly i ever do this big is a hopper type thing. If that will suit i will stay in, if not please remove my name. I am not even sure i have that many larger hooks so will probably have to buy some.

And technically i am East of the Rockies, on the Eastern foothills.

OK, this swap is indeed filling up!! Only three slots left guys!!

 

We have a couple of streamers that are larger than a size 12 but hey, streamers usually work better when they're a bit larger, right? :P

 

So once again in case you missed it...

 

Any Western style patterns, (from the Rockies to the California), from the group below. The patterns are:

 

Hoppers

Scuds

Stimi's

PMD's

or ...

streamers

 

Hook sizes 12 or smaller unless you're tying a streamer.

 

DUE DATE - JUNE 15

 

Limited to 12 tyers. Tie a bakers dozen (that's 13 flies for the uninformed) flies of any one of the above patterns and other than streamers, let's keep the hook sizes 12, or smaller sized hooks ( as in 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, etc.)

I am fairly new to the forum, Fly fishing and Tying. I am interested in joining the swap, it will be my first. I will probably have questions :wallbash: . I have read all the info for swaping....

 

So with that disclaimer I am in, if you will have me, with a 18 or 20 parachute BWO

Count me in with either a Truckee River Special or a Soft Hackle or a Mayfly. Decisions, decisions... so many decisions. DT

If you see a TBD next to your name, please let me know at your earliest convenience as to what fly you will be tying and I'll plug that info in next to your name. When you have finshed with your flies, please contact me for a mailing address and don't forget to toe tag your flies! It's nice to know who tyed which fly when you get them back at the end of the swap!

 

Since we have a few newcomers to the group where this may be your first swap, feel free to contact via PM if you have any questions. I'll be checking back on occasion to update everyone on how the swap is progressing.
