Swap Competition Tungsten Jig Nymph Swap

#17
Things been pretty crazy in my world lately, so I haven't been around much lately, but if there is room I'd love to get down with this swap. I've tied up so many flies on these hooks in the past 6 months I really don't even need to tie any for this swap.....But of course I will.

Sounds good Nick. I am gonna close this swap once we get 2 more people due to the rules and material needs. We will then tie 2 flies per person.

i'm in

fyi: allen is out of stock on the size 8, 10 & 12 hooks

seek alternate supplier for those sizes
We keep getting bought out just about as fast as we can crank them out! Should be more back in stock soon. we are ramping up production on the jig hooks because they've been way more popular than we anticipated.

You guys are out of the barbless nymph hooks too and I NEED THEM!
workin hard on it. our hooks went waaaay up in popularity the past few months. we're working on recovering from the sudden spike. been having several commercial tiers come in and buy thousands of packs at a time, so it's been crazy trying to see that coming and keep up. should all be smoothed out soon. sorry 'bout all that.

Okay. I'm in for the swap. I've picked 2 different patterns. I have some hooks coming in size 14 and 16 and some beads as well. I got the hooks from Allen before they sold out and the beads from intheriffle.com. They have hooks as well but they are way expensive compared to Allen. Hopefully the stuff will be here soon so I can crank them out but it appears we have pelnty of time.

I tried to tell you at the fly show. Hmm there must be someone out there advertising these hooks and or speaking at fly clubs and speaking about their power. Or it's that dang czech thing, either way they are dang fine hooks.

Sounds good Steve. Im thinking we should close the swap with you being the final member and each of us tying 2 flies per person? Thoughts guys?
This idea works for me, but I'm more interested in people tying two of the same pattern than I am in receiving two different patterns. That way I can keep one as a master and fish the other or I have two to fish :)

I will likely tie two of my red squirrel strip nymphs/leeches that work great in lakes and rivers. I've landed steelhead, trout, white fish, perch, crappie, bass, blue gill, and a king on it.

I'll get in on this one. Learning a new style of fly would be cool. Plus, I have the perfect river to try out some new patterns on a certain Saturday in June!

So I guess we would be back to two flies per. Is that correct? I learned something yesterday as I tied my first fly on the jig hook. You have to tie everything upside down if the fly has a shuck. Interesting. It wasn't all that good so I'll need the time to practice. The first fly is going to be cut off and done again, a few times, I'm sure of it.
