Married wing Salmon/Steelhead Swap

In an effort to better my own tying I propose a married wing Salmon/Steelhead fly swap. It can be a Classic pattern or something you make up. Blind Eye or eyed I don’t care. You don’t need to tie a bunch of the same pattern. You can tie one of each pattern or whatever you see fit. Just something tied in the classic style with a married wing. I plan on tying full dress stuff, some classic and some of my own. Due date June 1.

Certainly a challenge to up my game from globugs...
Might just be something to warm the evenings...number of flies?

Seems you are all set to go Woven while we tie.

WTF: need to find someone who can part with some Macaw tho...lemme know

Thought they were all Blue and Gold...peasant I am.
PM me with details man...trade and or cost of materials.

I've got heroin which can likely pass the sniffer dogs at the border.

Looks like people are as anxious to join this swap as they are to join one of heero's shrimp swaps... But I'm glad you guys are game either way.

Chase, I was thinking of keeping the number of participants down to 8 ish. It does not look like that will be an issue.

Ah...not to worry, I was swinging the slush today so I suspect folks will be at the vice before long man.
Eight participants and eight flies then. (Preferred hook size?)
Heero's a gent, he came through with some Parrot spikes...


...now, time to pull up those Bastian tutorials feck...

I couldn't tie passable flies for this swap if you put a gun to my head.
