    I have been busy tying many of the flies that I will use this summer guiding in Alaska. I was wondering if any one was interested in a swap with Alaska Flies.
    6 people with 2 patterns
    A Salmon fly and a Trout fly

    I'm headed that way in July, so it'd be good to see some other patterns to copy before I go. I'm interested.

    Do you guys like the 2 fly idea or one?
    How about a deadline of May 20th? We can adjust as needed.

    i can do either, but if i had a choice i would probably do the 2 patterns. besides it will be easier to fill with less people

    Gitto,
    Your in.
    The flies I use guiding range from size 14 stimulators to 3" flesh flies. Size 2 to 4 streamers are a good all around pattern. Leaches, Sculpins, Smolt patterns. Beads and Egg flies are also the go to fly during Salmon season.
    Here are two of my trout boxes for Alaska

    For Salmon, I have flies ranging from 6" leaches for kings down to size 2 plankton flies for Sockeye. Its all over the place. A size 1 or 1/0 will work for coho, chums, and pinks.
