Kerf, They would SMASH that pink shrimp. Nice tie.
Thanks Folks. The Pink Salmon Fly swap is set. Flies due by June 1st. It would make Sean very happy if you could PM the name of your fly to me.

Steve, This one doesn't really have an official name that I know of. It's just a fly that is common on Whidbey for pinks. So, let's call it the "WI Pink Fly".
Good group here... Connor just send you flies in time man! Pinks will be showing up in August not October...LOL! Not sure what i will tie yet, but i will post it soon.
:rofl: ET :rofl:
Thanks... I hope they're the ticket. This will be my first year to fish for Pinks.
Well the beauty of that fly is you can nymph it under an indicator if you want to, Swing it in the tailouts for pinks mid day, Or cast it on a floating line, let it sink and "jig it" back to you with twitchy type strips.
In fact, That looks like a pattern i would tie a BUNCH of and fish all the time!
Aready got half of em' tied but ran out of hooks. I might have to switch up the pattern.
No shop in Mo Hole sells SS-15's.
How big are Pink Salmon? I'm tying these on SC 15 #1/0. It's a thick strong hook, big gape, but the hackles and walking legs seem to be hiding it well. Before I tie anymore, should I go smaller?
i too am out of hooks after finishing half. and pink salmon are very small. averaging 4 or 5 lbs. i would probably say tie them on something smaller. but if you have already started than continue tyign them in that hook size
I tie mine on #8's or #6's. They are one of the smaller salmons.
This is what I've tied so far. Should I tie them smaller? I still need to trim things up a bit.
Those look like some tasty shrimp! I am sure they will love 'em! i say just keep doing what your doing. Here are a picture of my bugs that I just finished tonight. A variation on a comet with some yak hair to make it look a little shrimpy as well. Hopefully they will like mine too :thumb:
Oh yes! Kerfwappie and Dinker bringing some HEAT!
i made my a little longer so people can trim them down. some people prefer them long (like me) and others prefer them short. and the flies look gret guys!
