    New to pinks but I can tie. If you want me in I will be happy to tie up a little pink euphasid that slays the coho and SRC's. I dont see why it won't work for pink's!

    I'd be willing to take you up on that. I have never fished for pinks yet, and I'll take all the experience I can get.

    iagree I'm with Ben on that one! I have a little 12' aluminum that I was thinking about taking around Tacoma, but I would very much appreciate someone showing me a little something as I haven't fished for these guys either. I'll bring you some beer! :beer2:

    Dinker. Right on w/ the beer!!!

    Rotato, let us know what your favorite flavor is, and you will more than hooked up!

    :beer2:

    Plus since both Dinker and I haven't fished for pinks before, you'll still probably out-fish us both!

    Steve Just a recommendation for the swap and the info who is in/out of the swap and when the end date of the swap is. This is just a convience for the persons involved in the swap to get any updates there may be. I recommend that you edit your initial post with names what fly etc everyone will tie to look something like this. (I pulled this ex. from another swap on this site)





    The flies that you throw under tree limbs on a 90 deg day that make a big "splat", that could float a downrigger ball. Doesn't have to be a Stone or hopper, but the inbetween flies that could represent anything that would fall out of the brush. Examples: Madam X, chernobyl, turners bank robber, etc....Basically rubber legs, foam, deer and elk hair stuff. Also, I have read the complaints about people not getting thier flies back, so here is my solution: If you send me $5, I will UPS your flies to you and PM you the tracking number, so there will be no "lost in the mail" issues. Im thinking 12 persons max, since these are not quick to tie. April 25th deadline. If I get all the flies by the 25th, I will ship on the 27th, and PM you your tracking numbers that evening.
    Anyone interested?

    Thanks,
    Jason

    Sean, I'd be happy to do that but I don't have the names of the flies yet. I have sent a PM to everyone involved and made a post already with the June 1st date. When I get more info from the participants, I'll post it via an amendment or edit.

    Looking at that pink shrimp fly makes me wanna join. So I'm in. I'm tying a pink chummbaby'ish pattern. Great for fresh and salt. This is the only fly I use for them!
