    Anyone interested in a sculpin swap? I am in the process of tying up a bunch of sculpins for SRCs and would love to see what sculpin patterns other guys use either around here or when chasing big bows and browns in the freshwater.
    I'd like to keep this small... 6 or so people.
    everyone will include a SASE.
    due date 6 weeks after after a close the swap.

    and to remind folks... Big cutties like scuplins :)

    David,

    I just closed the books on three other swaps by loading up my mailbox for the postman. I'll likely not get to start tying any of these until after the Hoh Down, but I'll take a spot if one remains open. I'll likely tie a sculpin that is mostly rabbit and deer hair. Not sure what it is called but it has a bunny strip tail, body wrapped in rabbit, spun deer hari collar to give "fins" and head definition and then finished with a fat rabbit head. I'll put some weight to it either under the body or a cone head...probably body wraps. If you think that sound good let me know. Ed

    You can fish it. You will like to fish it. It may become D3Smartie's go to SRC pattern. Wait, too much hopeful projection there. It'll fish, that is all I can say. I'll start working on them after my return from the OP next week. Thanks.
