    anyone want to do a saltwater swap?


    being out on the salt this past weekend showed me how poor my fly boxes were looking so i am tying up a bunch now that the cutties are in the salt in good numbers.

    I'm in. I just tied Lefty's decievers (my fav salt fly) for a different swap, so I will have to come up with a different pattern (hate to be redundant). I would definitely like to be involved. No idea what pattern I'll tie, but I'll figure something out. Probably surf candy or some manner of a tube fly.

    I'm new to the salt game, but I'd be in for a go at it. I figure it would be good to get some flies from others to copy as well... Mine will be something basic I'm sure.

    basic doesnt mean bad for the salt at all... a two toned flashy baitfish with an epoxy head has probably accounted for most of my cutts and takes about 1 minute to tie.. if that...

    iagree A chartruese and white clouser is another easy one that will catch a ton of fish. Something is more technical to tie rarely has as much to do with effectiveness as it does with being pleasing to the tier's eye.

    Sweet, I could do either of those. Im assuming we need a few more people in the swap to actually get it going? I have never swapped before, and I look forward to it. - Thanks - T :thumb:

    Count me in. I got a cool pattern for Pinks at the Port Townsand Show. Do you require SS hooks?
