    I tie mine on #8's or #6's. They are one of the smaller salmons.

    This is what I've tied so far. Should I tie them smaller? I still need to trim things up a bit.

    Those look like some tasty shrimp! I am sure they will love 'em! i say just keep doing what your doing. Here are a picture of my bugs that I just finished tonight. A variation on a comet with some yak hair to make it look a little shrimpy as well. Hopefully they will like mine too :thumb:

    Both those flies look great. The weather is suppose to turn to crap again so I'll tie mine up this coming week.

    Those flies look really good! They should fish. I usually tie my Pink salmon flies on SC 15 size 2-6 since they aren't very big. I have tied some on larger Daiichi size 1 but probably wouldn't go bigger. Depending on the fly I choose to send, they will be on a size 2 or a Daiichi size 1. I'm tying several choices that will definitely fish. The best one, The Triple S doesn't look like much but it fishes really great in salt water. I'm tying it on the Daiichi hook now to see waht it looks like. When I get a few done, I'll send a picture.

    Don't trim anything. That way each individual can do his own preference.

    No worry mate. I still haven't decided which fly to swap. I've tied enough of two patetrns and am working now on a Clouser done with a new material called Baitfish Emulator, all in bright pink with yellow eyes. It should be a killer.

    I have not tied a thing for this one yet. I have not even decided exactly what I will be tying. I will do it soon.

    Damn, the bar is being set pretty high based on the photos in this thread. Looks like you all are insistent on making me the lowest contributor and greatest gainer in this swap, like many others before it. I've got an idea or two on what I might pull off that will please the pinks and maybe the anglers too.

    Dude, don't worry. My patterns are very simple and easy to tie. I'm not the best tier because I tie to fish, not for looks. Some of my ties look great, others look like dog meat.
