I've enjoyed a few swaps now so I'll take a turn hosting one. This swap is for some sort of surface beach fly targeting Pinks, Coho and sea run trout. Could include poppers, gurglers some sort of booby or even some new creation carved out of Granny's flip flops. These flies DO work and definitely put the thrill back into pink fishing after three days of non stop streamer action. I will not stipulate stainless hooks.
As per the swap rules, all flies must be submitted by the date set, sent to the address provided in an adequate envelope containing a postage paid return envelope. The flies must have toe tags and I am requesting each participant post the recipe with a picture in the thread. When all the flies have arrived I will repackage them so each of you get one of each tie as well as one of your own.
I'm hoping for 10 participants and would like to get completed flies returned before the pink hoard arrives. That means flies done and in the mail to me mid July.
Here are some ideas. Most of these have caught fish.

Ok, what's up guys.. no one willing to jump into a fly swap ...
I did a little back checking on some Fly Swap threads on " this forum "
Streamer Fly Swap .. 5, 030 views
Chironomid Fly Swap ... 3,030 views
Spring Chironomid Fly Swap .. 2,015 views
Bull Trout Fly Swap ( 2014 ) ... whopping .. 13, 304 views
So, that being said .. why isn't anyone jumping in on these Fly Swaps with " that many " views. And the list goes on and on.. The amount of views Fly Swaps surpass the amount on other topics by a large margin ..

Yeah, I've been flamed in past for that. No link posting is the norm for most forums, that is unless it's a forum for forums😆
Cool. So all you guys are signing up then eh? They're almost as easy to tie (or can be) as a handle bar. Thanks Coastrider.
I will find a pattern and post it asap. Hope this swap will take off, I will repost a thread here with hopes of getting it going. Top water fun!!!!

This is gonna be my second summer on the Island and hence I have had no experience yet with top water action for fall salmon... but if you guys trust my previous experiences fishing from the beaches for seabass, bluefish and small jack... then I'd be more than happy to join this swap!!!
