    Anyone have any interest in doing an Atlantic Salmon/ Steelhead hairwing swap? :confused:
    Been tying up a lot of Professors, Red Abbeys, Grizly Kings, BlackBear Green Butts and a myriad of other classics.
    I'd probably do a Nighthawk or Black Ghost for the swap.

    Anything/Anytime is good for me. We'll see what kind of #'s we are looking at. Most hairwings dont take too long to tie so hopefully we can get a good number. Probably ending about 1 month after we get our final group.
    I am thinking 12 to 14.

    I'll Play

    If I start tying now, I should be ready. Let me know the number of flies and due date. Don't know what I'll tie yet.

    Why dont we start with a due date of Oct 25 and a max of 10 people. I dont really think we will get 10 but who know. That gives us about 5 weeks.

    OK guys let me know if this works for you...
    We'll give people until the 24th of Sept to sign up with a due date of Oct 25.
    There are 4 of us right now and if it stays this few or even add one more I was thinking we cold tie up 2 patterns apiece for a total of 8 or 10 flies depending on the number of people. if we get up 7 or above scrap the idea.
    Let me know if the dates work for you and what you think.
    Thank you.

    D3S,

    One or two patterns depending on sign-up sounds good to me. Deadline is fine for either.

    sounds good.

    Okay great! I am going to do a modified Patricia. I have had pretty good luck with this one. I have Caught Steelies with it on both the Kalama and the washougal. Instead of using Claret I use kaufmans brown mixture, it's pretty good. :D

    Is there a sign up deadline for the swap? mine are done regardless and once the cutoff is made i will send them out, once a name and address is posted of course. :)
