OK Pals, we have one dozen tiers. So that means you need to tie up 11 flies (12 if you want one for yourself).
Please read the section titled "How a Fly Swap Works" if you have not been in one. Reminder: If you are not attending the "face to face" swap at the Tides Tavern, then please get your flies in the mail on or before July 5 so I have them to pass out at the Tavern. There are good lunches available at the Tavern, and, the Gig Harbor Fly Shop is a one-minute walk away! Face to Face at the Tavern at 1:00 PM on July 10. Have fun tying! Crank those puppies out! -dryflylarry

I've decided I'll be tying up a herring/baitfish fly. Probably loosely based on Ferguson's herring from his book. I'll try and get a pic as I tie some up and make sure y'all approve.

Kelvin, those are both excellent looking ties, I look forward to which ever one you decide on. Sorry you can't get to the face to face but it sounds like you'll be wetting a line down south anyway, have a good trip.

Great Eric. I think they have a few salmon in California, right?
Yeah, a few :-(

I am relatively new to fly fishing and have never actually caught a coho on a fly, although I caught plenty on gear as a kid growing up in Ketchikan. Extrapolating from what I used to use and a bit of internet research, I am tying up a variation of the Purple Angel.

Great! We will all be looking forward to it!
