Talking Ok Hal, summer run fly swap

It's my turn to host another swap. So, how about a summerrun fly swap? I figured we could have flies in by mid May, and then I can turn around and have them out by first of June.

So, what do you all say. This will be the main sign up board. I will post on the GL board as well. So, what do you think?

Here's the rules for any of you. First off, you can tie any freshwater summerrun steelhead fly you want. BUT, they must all be the SAME pattern. Different hook sizes are fine, but please don't change up patterns so everyone gets the same fly. Right now, no limit on tyers. But, will probably close it down at 12. You pay to send flies to me, I'll pay return shipping. Just use a reusable mailer please (padded envelope, small box, etc).

So, who wants a summerrun swap. This will give you about 3 weeks to tie up patterns. Standard rules, tie up one for each participant, plus one extra for the swapmeister . I like to send complete packages, so like to enclose one of your own flies in return package. If you'd like, can send any extras as well.

You know...that gives me an idea!!!

I always, as I think most everyone does, tie proven patterns and/or patterns I have confidence in for swaps...

It would be intresting, if we all sat down and tied up flies that we have been playing with...or our latest greatest creation that may not have even had a chance to prove itself yet.

You take these patterns, pass them around to many differnt anglers of differnt abilities fishing differnt watersheds and we could very well stumble upon the next latest greatest fly since sliced bread!

Thumbs up Wow Ryan

You actually read my mind. I was thinking of doing one like that. Figured it would better for winterruns, since most people get pretty outlandish with winter patterns. Maybe next swap???

Jerry,

Can we make it the third week of May ? Looks like we will have fishing for our late run winter runs into mid may at least ?
If you know where to go of course.

Our summer runs may be in by June if we get some rain and if you know where to go.

PM Out

P.S. I am not telling either.

"Sparky," your 'dead on' with your idea.

"It would be intresting, if we all sat down and tied up flies that we have been playing with...or our latest greatest creation that may not have even had a chance to prove itself yet."

Some of the best 'stuff' I've got in my box (this weekend excepted .... SHEESH! Thousands of the buggers in the upper river and I must have made a 1,000 casts yesterday/today for One, count 'um, one 4" trout. Go figure?)

Great stuff that has really worked (Malcom's "Willie Guns," Aaron's 'Rock Worms,' etc., are flys I'd never seen, let alone have a chance to try. I think you've got a cool idea; lets all let our immaginations run amuck.

Sparky: "Spare Me."

At my age, if I can wip up a dozen flys in a couple of evenings, so can you.

You're "love life" can't be that good .... could it? Snigger, snigger.

Swap Flies, sure!

OK, I'm in. If you don't mind "old standards".
Mine will be 'tried and true' summer run favorites for the Deschutes.

ok, sounds like a go

Hal, can make third week of may no sweat. Most good summerrun fishing on rivers I run start mid June.

Ok, how about this. How about sending two sets of flies? One is a tried and true, one experiemental. I know I tie alot of flies, and can get them done in about 2 hours max. But some take a bit longer. So let me know what you all want to do. I'm game either way. If you want to only do tried and true, we'll do that.
