    iagree This smiley just seemed appropriate.

    I too have gotten a jump on my flies (8 down, 4 to go) so as not to conflict with deer season.

    The ironic part is that I too am tying Bloody Mary Bead Heads (sz 12). Well, at least we aren't tying the same size:beer2:

    Hope all is well,
    Ned

    Dave, Sorry Buddy. We had a cut off date of October 5th.

    Guys, your tying 9 flies this month, nymphs. My mail box is feeling lonely out there. Let's fill that pig up.

    Ron:

    I will make up toe tags tonight and ship in the morning. A big ugly bug is coming your way. New pattern for me, so it is not pretty, but it will take fish.

    Anyfish,

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If trout think your fly is good enough to eat, who am I top argue.

    Dang, you guys are just too darn quick. I haven't even sent out the "Welcome to the Swap Letter" and already I have Anyfish's flies sitting here, Nice looking nymphs, AnyFish. I may have to copy that one before I ship them out.

    gmbjr,

    Jeez Dude, what do you do for a living? Whatever it is, I don't want to do it. I hate pain and broke anything hurts.

    Let us know how your getting along, Okay. Good work on getting those flies in the mail.

    So I saw that this swap was full, and that another tyier was rejected. But if I can, could I jump on board starting next swap due date? I don't even mind having to do a 2 for 1 on the first swap in....

    gmbjr, Your flies arrived in really good shape. A sturdy fly box like you used and a padded envelope will protect your flies during shipment, and be less expensive.

    James and Davpot, I asked the guys about opening the swap up for a couple more. Only got a response from two so far.

    DDS, I'll ask, but it's up to those who already signed up.

    I have no problems with additional individuals for the next round. My flies will be in the mail on Monday. They've been tied up and sitting on my desk for a while, just haven't made it down to the post office yet.

    Oh crap! I accidentally tied 10 flies! Looks like the swapmeister will have to keep one of them ;)

    Mine are going out tomorrow. As mentioned in PM, I am for including the extra tiers even if that means worse odds on the tying contest. Looks like that would mean a bakers dozen each month if I keep accidentally adding one for the swapmeister. :beer2:

    Hope all is well,
    Ned
