    Most of my steelhead flies are 3 inches plus. I was wondering if anyone wanted to do a swap with big steelhead or salmon flies. Intruders, Articulated stuff, and big tube flies. The bigger the better! Flies that are a pain to cast.

    8 flies if you want one sent back to you. 7 if you do not.

    Sounds like we have some interest.
    Ibn,
    A saltwater tube would be just fine.
    Just make them Big and Ugly.

    If you'll have me, I'd be game. I've been playing with some big noisy water pushers for those Tiger Muskies in Greenlake...

    Well looks like we have 6 already.
    Does April 15th work? Gives us some time to do these flies.
    If anyone has any suggestions, let me know.

    I'm game for a 7th. I know in your original post you had mentioned articulated flies, would the group prefer a stinger back there near the end? I was thinking more along the lines of hungry fish (predators) go for the eyes and thus don't really need a hook back at the end, but I can modify to add a stinger if you would prefer...
