    Ok, this will be my fist time running a fly swap but have contributed in a few now. This swap is for estuary chinook flies. I was thinking 8 people other than me so every one will tie 8 flies. I was planning on the deadline being June 25th. I think this is enough time. So let me know what you will be tying. No offence beginners but I would like to try to keep this to the advanced group of tyers. :) Swap closes the 26th of May.

    I'm in. I've got a pattern I know works well with estuary Coho, though I have not yet tried it on Chinook (yet), I have a feeling it will work there too. It is called the "Lava Swim".

    Clint I have tied up 8. Let me know when we are going to get out and fish so I can hand them off to you.
    This fly has been responsible for 100% of the estuary chinook I have caught around here. ;)
