    Default Fly swap

    Hi all, maybe im being forward in asking but im going to give it a shot!

    I am going to be at the coast for 10 days in December and I have never fished salt water with a fly rod before, and I seriously want to give it a go!

    Now I dont have a clue on what flies to tie, to get or anything!!!! I was thinking if someone would like to swap me some salty flies for some of my fresh water flies...???

    Just some of the more popular flies that I can use fishing the lagoons or what ever???? Atleast I will have some samples to tie some more flies with.

    If someone wants to do a swap lemme know what flies I can tie up for you

    China, you more than welcome to raid my saltwater flyboxes, I've got plenty! I can't guarantee they'll catch you fish though......

    Ive litteraly got an icecream box full of old salty flies which you are more than welcome to. Im a bit anal when it comes to my boxes so all the odd ones get booted to and old box. I just keep them around for the hooks. You send me an adress and I send you a handful or two.
    Around the steel no tortur'd worm shall twine, No blood of living insect stain my line;
    Let me, less cruel, cast feather'd hook, With pliant rod athwart the pebbled brook,
    Silent along the mazy margin stray, And with fur-wrought fly delude the prey
