*Swap is Full*

 

I spend most of my time fishing the tribs of Lake Erie and with another spring steelhead run kicking off soon I thought it would be a fun to do this swap. Normal swap rules apply. Stamped return envelope included in package. First 12 to reply with Im in. I will set the date when the swap fills up. Hoping for a little more than the standard egg pattern, lets make this fun and get creative. Send your best 12 flies. I included the 7 individuals who said they would want in on this swap in my other post. Let me know if you guys are still interested in the next few days.

looking forward to this swap.

I'm witcha man. If I were to send in what I caught literally hundreds of Lake Superior and Michigan steels on it would be a couple of rolls of yarn, some #84 Eagle Claw hooks in size 4, and maybe some instructions on how to snell a hook. I'll do ya' proud on this one tho and tie a real fly.

Krystal Skunk looks like it will catch in my opinion. Steelhead tend to be pretty aggressive you stick something in there face and there going to bite it. It has similar qualities to a lot of black nosed dace flies I have seen.

CaddisGladys I have never heard of a woody bugger but it looks pretty cool I have taken quite a few fish on bright purple and pink streamers.
