Seems like its been almost a whole year since we last did a fly salon; anyone interested in restarting that tradition?

It's a really good game Steve, don't now why it died off? Someone starts a thread for the month with a theme, people post flies they tie, someone wins & gets to start the next one & pick the theme! Easier than a swap, no postage & the end of the month is the end of the month!

it's an informal tying contest. Someone starts the salon and picks a theme, then people submit photos of their fly/flies that match said theme. At the end of the month, the person who started the salon picks their favorite, and the winner gets to pick the next month's theme. It's fun!

Here's an idea just in time for summer: Rubber Legs

Hi Steve-

It's a fun thing I started on this site back in 2011 even though I rarely participate these days. It's very rewarding for me to see that it persists.

For Steve and anyone else interested, here's the original two threads from when I kicked this off about 6+ years ago.

Good luck to all the paticipants!
