    Backyard says we don't talk about carp fishing, but we are doing it. How about a carp fly swap so we can see what is being effective. Make the due date the end of July or perhaps the middle. I'll be gone to AK until the 15th though. If interested let me know. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    Well, I was waiting to see if any more interest was going to present itself. Islander are you in? If so that makes six. Lets do two each or perhaps two patterns one each. Let me know you opinion. I'll leave it open until Sunday. I'll be back from a trip to Blue and Chopaca by then. Lets set the date for the 29th of July. I've got to tie string bunnies and dry flies for Alaska now.

    I will do a light and dark one, two staples on the columbia. I got 5 yesterday on the light one, none under 10lbs.

    Ok, I'm back from the HUGE wasteland of central Alaska. Fairbanks is not the place to go if you want close fishing this year. Continued rain has most of the rivers running extremely high. Finally found one day of beautiful, clear, absolute bliss chasing greyling on a springcreek type river. Those of you who responded to this swap earlier, let me know if you are still in or out. Lets set the due date for August 10. Let me know

    Im still in and have mine done for the most part. Wish there were more interested in it though. If we do get more I still think the couple patterns per person is the way to go.

    Okay. I have never fished for carp per se since there's not a whole lot interest I will like to join this swap but I need an idea of a fly to tie. Give me some fly ideas and I'm in.

    Ok, I'm still recovering from the heat and working way too much. Lets extend the date to Aug 20. I need to know who is still in. The list should read:
    Backyard
    Jab
    Zen
    Vancouver
    Jay Johnson
    Mr.P
    Flyn'dutchman
    So 14 flies, two of each pattern. Makes it easier to split up. don't have to worry who sent what.

    I'll tie a Bread Fly. I dropped my sandwich in the lake back in June. Carp from 100 feet away couldn't get to the thing fast enough. It was like feeding time at a hatchery when the pellets get thrown in. Actually, no Carp took a bite of anything. It made me wonder if they won't take the natural why the hell would they take the imitation! Of course it was slathered with peanut butter and jelly but that should have made it more desirable not less. Maybe you's guys will have more luck with the Bread Fly than I did with the sandwich. Okay, fine, I won't tie a Bread Fly. I'll do a couple others.

    Flyin'Dutchman, do you want us to "sign up" for flies or just tie 'em and mail 'em?
    SnoopZen, I fished with Keith last month and had a great trip fo shizzle.
    Backyard, I'd like to meet you again.
    jabseattle, welcome to a small fraternity.

    Just to clarify...

    Are we doing 7 of each pattern to equal to 14 flies
    or
    14 of each pattern so we end up tying 28 flies?


    I'm down for either, it's always nice to have a back up of the one thats
    working.
