    Ok, this will be my fist time running a fly swap but have contributed in a few now. This swap is for estuary chinook flies. I was thinking 8 people other than me so every one will tie 8 flies. I was planning on the deadline being June 25th. I think this is enough time. So let me know what you will be tying. No offence beginners but I would like to try to keep this to the advanced group of tyers. :) Swap closes the 26th of May.

    I'm in. I've got a pattern I know works well with estuary Coho, though I have not yet tried it on Chinook (yet), I have a feeling it will work there too. It is called the "Lava Swim".

    Clint I have tied up 8. Let me know when we are going to get out and fish so I can hand them off to you.
    This fly has been responsible for 100% of the estuary chinook I have caught around here. ;)

    Sounds good. I have Jakes, Davids, Rons, Craigs, zachs, and Camerons. Some of you sent me 8 so I am assuming those of you who did want yours back. I will check the mail tonight to see if there are anymore waiting for me. They all look good so far.

    D3S, Any chance of getting a photo or pattern name on that 100% King Katcher? I was talking to Bill at PenOutfitters today about some of your photos you posted on sliders last night. He said to replicate your flies because you were the bomb at tying them consistent, tweaking to get them to rile up fish and that you catch a ton of fish. Oh, and thanks for the pics and/or pattern names in advance should you have time to forward them.

    Zach, if you tie your flies while naked how can you lose them? Just wondering!
