    It’s official then the Sculpin swap is on !
    So far we have:
    1. me
    2. Trout990
    3. Mr. Trout
    4. Cascade Killer
    5. Ringlee
    6. Willie Bodger

    Let’s shoot for ten people total. The Deadline will be March 15 that should give us plenty of time. You guys might want to post what you want to tie, unless you don’t mind duplicates. In case we do maybe we can mix up the colors or something like that. Some basic rules which I am sure everyone already knows. Toe tag your flies, send them in a container that I can send back easily to you. Don’t forget to send return postage with your return address. Any Questions? I know I am probably forgetting something so chime in if I did.

    I would love to join the swap. I'll be tying a minor modification of a sculpin pattern (rabbit strip, dumbbell eyes, etc.) which Skip Morris described in Flyfishing and Flytying Journal. Searun cutties on the Cowlitz really loved it.

    I will tie the classic sculpin. Bunny strip, Wool head and some pectoral fins. Black or Green? Saltwater hook or not? Might mess around on colors.

    You realize Ringlee has already mailed his flies to me you would be missing one fly if you decide to Join. If everybody else is okay with it I am.

    It sounds like everyone is going to tie some big ugly sculpins. So i have decided to do the opposite. Im gonna tie a little wounded sculpin. It one of those flies that you look at and think, "thats cant possibly catch anything." But then u try it and it works great. Im tank testing them and comparing them to the real action of a wounded sculpin. So i hope they work for you.
