I'll hop into the next one as well. Can tie anything really, but would generally focus on nymphs etc. Maybe one each of pheasant tail nymph and a golden olive bumble?

I can tie in a hospital bed but getting out to post stuff will be a problem so i'll have to take a backseat and let somebody else organise.

Luckily no! Tying is the only thing keeping me sane right now while i'm cooped up in here. My fly box will be stuffed to the gills if this keeps up.

Saltwater fly swap

I can organise this one if no one else is minds?

Can everyone who is willing to tie a saltwater pattern post it by the end of this week so we got an idea of numbers.

I'll copy a pattern I bought in a tackle shop. Not sure of the name but i think its a sprat pattern. Could someone else who normally does tie saltwater patterns recommend the best hooks to tie on (for those of us, myself included, that dont know )

We'll aim to have this swap finished by end of March and I believe in April its a sea trout fly we'll tie.

Thanks

I use mostly Mustad 34007. It's a standard salty fly hook and should be easily available. Partridge sea prince and mustad 10827BLN hoodlums are also good. Gamakatsu are some of the best but difficult to find. The only thing that really matters is whether the hook is corrosion resistant or not so look for either stainless steel or tin-plated. I'll tie some polar fibre baitfish since i owe okedoke a few anyway! ;-)
