    SWAP SIGNUPS--CLOSED
    I don't think there has been a coho fly swap for awhile. I'm starting to get antsy and thinking about late summer coho. I would enjoy seeing other's creations in a coho fly. I'm thinking of a "face to face" Tides Tavern" on Sunday (UPDATED) July 10 , 1:00PM for all to meet. Any takers? Tell me there are going to be a few coho around in August! You are not required to meet face to face, but it can be fun. Maximum of 12. UPDATE: For those that cannot meet at the "Face to Face", please mail your flies to me at your local post office by July 5, so I may pass them out and get yours back to you. $2.00 for return postage or self-addressed envelope. Don't forget to toe TAG your flies with name and your name. Thank you.

    Updated Swap date to July 10, Sunday. Noonish. Tides Tavern, Gig Harbor. I'm expecting two more known people to sign up so far.

    I wouldn't be able to make it, but I could definitely send some in. I've only really tied clousers for coho, but they aren't especially exciting, so I'll look through my copy of Fly Fishing For Pacific Salmon II to see if I can find something a little more interesting -- or end up doing a clouser in something other than plain white n pink. I'll run the idea past you first when I do decide.

    Great! Your on the list. I think I like your idea of creating something other than a clouser pattern. Maybe we should all attempt to avoid them for this swap, but, heck, they catch coho!

    Can I still participate if I'm too much of a cock to tie my own flies, and just buy some shitty 99 cent Sri Lankan jobbers on the way to the tavern?

    Well.... hell yeah. This is a somewhat of an attempt at a little socializing event. Maybe you can get a friend to tie!! Just come on over anyway, flies or no flies. It doesn't appear there are many with coho fever just yet. I still have a couple other guys I'm pretty sure will participate. Pass the word!

    I'll be a no show,I have a swing shift job so I'll just send my flies to larry. They will be the standard priest point fly that we all use up here in marysville, that is okay with dryflylarry

    Larry,

    I'm in. I'll try to learn how to tie some comet type fly in the next the month. Any color ideas?

    Right on James! I'll add you to the list. Been wanting to get out fishing with you. I can't this Monday/Tuesday, but the following week we should go do it. PM me and we'll set it up.

    Coho like "pinks" especially.
