05-06 Beginner/Intermediate Anti-Shack Nasty Marathon Fly Swap

Discussion in 'Fly Swaps' started by Ron Eagle Elk, Sep 17, 2005.

  1. Aw'right Anyfish. I'll be keeping my good eye peeled for them.

  2. Ok, time to get started on the next round. I am going to try something different to test my skills. I am not promissing anything that will look good, but it should catch fish.

  3. My mailbox overfloweth. Flies arrived from Wayne Kohan, The Shad King and Tom Grobelny. We have another two-fer this month.

    Nice flies from all three of you.

  4. Randy Diefert's flies arrived today as well as those from Anyfish. Looking good guys.

  5. Procrastination is my middle name. :thumb:

    No, truth be told, I'm just getting into Steelheading and have been enjoying myself with steelhead flies. I wish I could say that I forgot about the dries that were due, but I knew all along the end of the month was coming up fast. :eek: No worries however, I tied half last night, and I'll finish the other half tonight to be mailed out Saturday.

  6. Desmond, Cool. Ain't those steelhead flies fun to tie. Nice sized hooks, great materials and the fish you get to catch. Wow!.

  7. Dylan DePaulo's dries arrived today. Mighty fine looking bugs they are, too. Love the "what this fly taught me" that Dylan includes with his flies. Nice touch.

  8. I agree Ron, that is a nice touch that Dylan includes. I would include something like that, but I've been told I'm not teachable! ;)
  9. Desmond, I'm just not that witty.

    Some very nice dries arrived ffrom Jesse James today. I'll be making some copies of these for this summer.

  10. Howdy fellas. My life has become quite hectic lately. I haven't had any extra time to tie any flies. Unfortunately, it would probably be best that I remove myself from the swap. I aplogize for the short notice for this month. the end of the months keep sneaking up on me.

    I'm a little bummed. I really enjoyed getting everyone's flies the first few months.

    Hopefully, I'll things will settle down, and I will be able to participate in some future swap. That is, if anyone is willing to let me participate..

  11. Bill,

    No problem, Buddy. Sometimes life gets in the way of our guilty pleasures. It happens. Thanks for the heads up. Keep your eyes peeled for future swaps once things settle to a more relaxed pace. I'll make the change on the first post.

  12. Ron,
    My flies (January and February) are now in the hands of the U.S. Postal service.

  13. Mine will be going out via fed ex tommorow. Tried to get them all done last night, just lost my steam.
  14. I am so excited about getting the February dries that I am driving to the WET side and having Ron deliver them in person to me:thumb: :thumb: :thumb: at my temorary residence there.
    I don't think that even you over achievers with your double offerings and fancy pants toe tags can top.that ;)

  15. What Jesse didn't mention is that, not only is he making the drive, but he's fixin dinner for me and VEE, plus a latte. Talk about your super over-achievers!. I knew you guys liked getting the swap flies, but this is just a bit over the top.

  16. Dry flies arrived from Desmond Wiles and Theron D. Well done, guys.

  17. As promised, March Brown Comparaduns are now in the capable hands of Federal Express.
    Btw, my screen name should change hopefully soon to Ed D.
  18. Ed. Your name already changed. I was trying to figure out who the h**l Ed D was.

  19. Yeah, Looks like a name change will update posts recursively.
  20. Matt G's dries arrived today, along with his streamers. You guys get an extra this month too. Dang, how lucky can we get?
