Question Saltwater fly archives are smoking us !

Took a look at the saltwater fly archives which are smoking the steelhead, atlantic salmon, trout and all other archives.

How can that be ? Fresh water fly fishing has a much longer history.

Striblue would you consider converting your efforts in our direction, we need help over here.

There at 1,000s of steelhead and salmon flies alone, and trout flies who knows how many there are of them.

Have to get a digital camera soon, so I can help out here.

I will do ALL the trout flies I received from the recent swap, pictures, patterns etc. ASAP after next week since I will be S.O.L. for the next 7 days.

Pete the pictures are taken. I've been terribly negligent on getting the instructions on how to post the pictures out. They will get out.

John,

Forget the Classic salmon fly project, I would not want to see any one try and take that project on. That would be sure unneeded mental torture and stress.

Actually, I would rather see every ones home grown flies that are not the standards and available in the fly pattern books or now web sites. Gives my new ideas for my patterns.

Sometimes I think I enjoy tying more than actually fishing. One thing for sure is that most of us probably due more hours of tying than actually fishing.

Hal

Question

I'm never quite sure where it becomes a waste of bandwidth for me to post my own flies....

In that case, my favourite small-stream wets for Summer SH in small streams are attached. Just variations on the Grey Hackle Peacock and GH Yellow.
