Okay guys, it looks like as of today (Jan 21st) we have a good number for the swap:

Myself
Roop
John
Adrian
DFix
FrenchCreek

Six people minus one (don't need to send a fly to yourself) = 5 flies apiece.

1. Please send your flies in a container that can be used to return other swap flies to you.

2. Please include packing and sufficient return postage for the return of the swap flies.

3. Please include the recipe for your fly and any special notes you'd like to share.

4. Please indicate whether or not you would need help with imaging prior to putting the fly into the archive. If necessary, a picture can be taken and e-mailed to you to go along with your entry.

Thanks, and I'll send all of you my mailing address in short order.

Wow, Feb 1st tommorow, better get my skates on!

Someone said that pike like to eat crayfish. I recall seeing some casting lures which had a crayfish look to them and I have a pattern in mind which could be adapted.

Before I get carried away though, I thought I would ask - can anyone confirm Esox Lucius partiality to the crayfish?

What's to say Esox Lucius is partial to any one thing? - if it's smaller cousin is any indication, crayfish is a staple dietary component.

Damn, I wanna go fishing ! :eyecrazy:

Adrian- I can confirm Esox Lucius' partiality to anything that can fit into his or her mouth. If it's alive, it's fair game.

Looking forward to seeing the flies.

Thanks Adrian, I look forward to seeing the flies. As for trying them out, I've been doing some pretty serious research on the pike fishing around here and can say that they come into the shallows and tributaries when the water temps are between 42-48 degrees. Since the temperature of the CT River is already a balmy ( ) 39 degrees, I'd think that the fish could be moving in by early to mid March. I'm going to make some scouting trips with a buddy and see, and I'll keep you posted.
