    Alright its been a few years since I've seen a Steelhead Jig Swap on here. So with the upcoming Winter Steel Season upon us I figured it'd be prime time to organize a SWAP! I've met some great guys on here that enjoy the same fishing techniques & perfecting their hand tied jig patterns..... even meeting up with a couple to run the jet sled & chase winter steel together. Its always interesting to see the different types of patterns that come from the Michigan guys.

    So with that said, Please reply to the thread to toss your name in the hat. I'll send you a PM with the information once we have a head count. Swap rules are in the sticky of the Fly tying forum. I'll leave this open for a couple weeks or so to try and garner the attention we are looking for. Last time we did this I think we had 12-15 participants which seems like a good number.

    Who's with me!

    I will plan a Pattern or possibly 2 if we struggle to fill spots:

    1.) SWAPMASTER - Dhosera - Triple Secret Steelhead Jig #1
    2.)
    3.)
    4.)
    5.)
    6.)
    7.)
    8.)
    9.)
    10.)
    11.)
    12.)
    13.)
    14.)

    So ironic!!!! I was just having that thought over the weekend and was going to post but you beat me to it! I am in for one pattern for now.

    A couple in my rotation these days was learned from the last swap!

    thanks for organizing!

    I've never been in a "jig" swap, a lot of different fly swaps, this will be fun and interesting. Count me in. I normally fish undressed jigs, but have a couple that I dress and like.

    That is probably what mine will be, torpedo dressed jigs, they are what I use 90% of the time.

    Nice selection of Steelhead Jigs arrived in the mail yesterday. Thanks dhosera for putting this together and your time involved.
    Thanks guys for some new ideas on the jigs, a couple of them will definitely be added to my jig box soon, and all will be fished.

    Hey guys - just got mine today! Thanks dhosera for making it happen!

    Seems like the someone has very similar taste to mine in the “nymphy jig” department! Just mines a little more lazy (but darn effective) haha!... gears are already turning on a hybrid of the two! But Just like Denny said - they’ll all get run!

    We will have to do this again, it’s been too long!... maybe I’ll poke around and see what kind of interest we all have in the summer as we all dream about this time of the year on the river.

    happy new year to all!

    I already have some material dug out and a couple of different torpedo jig colors laying on the bench. I normally like the KISS rule on jigs, but will try to come up with something close to Adams and Superiors jigs, they look fishy.
