Classic Spey Fly Swap

kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

Classic Spey Fly Swap

Post by wovenstonefly » Sun Jan 13, 2013 12:08 pm

Since Aggers doesn't feel up to taking on another swap, I propose a classic spey fly swap. I like the idea of using blind eye hooks and gut but I think they should be fishable, so... full gut? I would like to stay as true to the origional patterns as possible, I assume we would have to sub things like heron but with that exception, dont.

lets open it up to 12 tiers. With a special invite for the Mag 8, Articulated trico, and PBR if they want to join. Everyone ties 12 flies and we will donate the 12 to another good cause.

rules
1. Tie speys, dees, or glasso's but if you tie glasso's don't tie more than four. If you don't tie glasso flies you won't get glasso flies back.
2. Tie swap flies on whatever hook you want and on a size 6 or larger. Auction flies should all be classic spey on a Alec Jackson 1.5 blind eyne with gut.
3. Tie 13 flies. 11 for the other tiers, one for auction, and one for deserving people who help along the way.
3. Due date is August 1st

Will Dees be accepted in addition to Spey style?
I'd love to throw down a Glen Grant and Moonshine...the flies too! :smile

I should hope so. Same ballpark. 12 mallard roofs would be boring too.
I assume we choose all our own patterns so we don't have to tie 12 lady Caroline's?

works for me, I'm not anti dee as long as it's good for everyone else. Or we could hold off and do dee's on the next round.

Yes, I figured we would do this the same way as the salmon fly swap. Tie whatever patterns you want so we dont get bored with the same one and get to see a variety.

You have a couple months, that's plenty of time for a man of your stature.

Fallen would be a good addition too if he wants in.

As I am now in Atlantic salmon territory, I would love to join this swap. If permitted, of course. It would be a learning experience for me, but so is the rest of life. I have Jorgensen's book to start and a good bit of determination to finish.
