No problem , I`m going to start on them tonight .
Sigh .... ever try to get a 'straight answer' from an Atty?:rofl:
I'd like to be in, but sounds like might be closed already. I'd tie a freight train, signal light, or whatever. Just say so either way.
I'd like to join if you have room for one more.
Couple more to sweeten the pot Bob, I say go for it.
Thanks Daryle, I agree. I PM'd Steelie and Steve, you are in as well. This will be very kewl, given the number of entrants. I think the Cruzan will have to be on the light side, since I have lots of goose shoulder wings to position perfectly. PM me with questions.
EVERYONE SEE THE FIRST POST FOR ANY AND ALL UPDATES AND INFORMATION!!
Exactly how many signal lights do I need to tie?
Clint, you need to tie 11 at this point, but if you want to add another doz for swap meister gratuity, that would be very generous and nice.
Gad Zooks!bawling: If I'd but known that this could be a real GOLD MINE I'd have suggested the swap.
I might try to tie a couple dozen just for practice, got lots of chicken feathers just need some hooks.
Daryle, don't stress. Seriously the best production spey hackle I use is pheasant rump. I am one of those spey enthusiasts that have a whole blue eared pheasant skin, have tied with rhea and all of the above, but when I want fishing flies, pheasant rump or burned goose or mallard, works just fine. Tie bastard speys if you want or use schlappan, which is cheap and creates a nice spey/dee.
Just a quick question . I`d hate to see anybody get into trouble , so , can somebody tell me whether it is legal for you folk to possess flies tied with seals fur , if the seals fur was legally obtained , as it is here in Canada ? If it may be a problem , I`ll be sure not to use any , and use angora instead .
"Technically," the answer would be yes, the reality is no. Rather doubt that even a close examination of a single fly in someone's box would raise an eyebrow. Now Polar Bear, that might be another question.
Yeah, don't sweat the seal fur
11 flies by mid Oct.. Sounds like a good deal. I am rolling a pattern of my own design which is very effective in the fall. Is that cool?
Brain: The seal fur will work and besides I don't know a spey fisherman in sight that wouldn't marvel at a fly tied with seal or pb as long as it was legally obtained.
New designs are what I am trying to achieve with this swap. I personally rarely tie a traditional pattern, as I am always substituting new materials/methods on proven patterns. The only flies that come standard in my box are those like clousers, where you just want many of them in your box for the season.
Just registered on the WFF bb. Is it too late to submit flies for the swap? Was privileged to take a spey/dee tying class last year from Glen Wilson.
I want to confirm, only send in 11 flies? You won't be including one on our own flies to send back to us? What's your address? I finished mine early.
Speydee, I would love to include you but I left it open for just a few days extra for one last entrant. Now that people have tied up their submissions, I hate to say it, but I will have to leave it as is at 12 entrants total. There will be more fly swaps for sure as the steelie season progresses.
Steve, it is 11 flies total. You can include that extra fly to be sent back to you, but I left that out of the count. See original post for added details.
I'll start one after this one is over.
