    Anyone up for a summer steelhead swap? We're getting closer and closer to the first appearance of the summer runs. Flies should arrive by June 15. Looking for about a dozen swappers. Your choice of pattern.

    I'll partake. I've got a couple good summer swingers to tie up.

    I`m a bit hesitant to join because the flies I sent for the last two swaps I was in took a loooong time to arrive at the destination .
    If the due date was pushed back a bit , I`m in .

    I"m (relatively) new to the forum but I'd love to get into this swap. Not sure how it works, but if folks are into it I'd like to contribute some Ferry Canyons.

    I can`t read . Apparently .
    I thought Cameron said the due date was May 15th .
    June 15th gives plenty of time .
    I`m in , and will tie a Kispiox Bright (variation) .

    Let's give it one more week, then close it. I know it's a small group, but I take it interested/enthusiastic group. Once it closes I'll pm swappers with my address. I'll take photos and post them in our respective gallery.

    Polar bear .
    Legal to buy here in Canada , so I assume it would be legal to fish in the U.S , but I`m not 100% sure .

    Mailing PB over the border is not an issue on your end, but I am pretty sure that those in the US receiving it will run afoul of Federal Law. I am not 100% certain, but with the listing of the bear in 2008, I think it's best to avoid shipping PB to the US.

    Anyone else know better? I could be wrong, but I'd like to err on the side of caution...don't ship me any PB.

    Sorry,

    Any PB not documented as pre 1973 is illegal to own in the US. The recipient and sender will both run afoul of International Agreement on the Conservation of Polar Bears

    I should have mine done this weekend. I'm in the middle of a tying binge and I'm fishing local for the holiday.
