Discussion in 'Fly Swaps' started by Thomas Mitchell, May 7, 2009.
Thanks guys, they already went out but that's cool of you anyway.
I should have thought of it before but next time I host a swap, if there are any extras, I think I'll distribute them so that everyone gets an extra that someone else tied. I should have thought of it this time but my brain was too fried from a tough week at work.
If anyone got the wrong fly box or I managed some other CF, just let me know.
The gallery is now complete and everyone should have gotten a PM from me with a USPS delivery confirm number in case the flies don't show.
Also - I'm interested in your feedback about this sort of 'on time' swap format.
I liked it a lot, especially the suggested mail-in date. Made sure everyone was on their toes.
i got my flies and they look great! great on time delivery and great flies!!!
ill be sure to join more of your swaps
Thomas, I got my flies today and they look better than they do in the pictures...which is saying a lot. Super tasty flies guys!! Great job!
I also really like the 'on time' swap format, like it really should be. I hosted a swap this winter and had some really late stragglers, and it ended up being much later than I would have liked. So next time for me is going to be the "OCD Thomas" style :thumb:
I can't wait to get out and fish these.
Got my package today. Everything looked great.
D3's purple muddler that I got had perfect proportions, in my humble opinion. (I already took the tags off, but I think it was yours)
You guys just about doubled the amount of spey flies in my inventory.
Thomas, thanks again! Really liked the straight-forwardness right out of the gate! Great flies everyone, can't wait to get out and fish them. :thumb:
Got my set today. Great job by all and great job by the swapmaster.
This was my first swap and I had a lot of fun. Lots of great flies, can't wait to get back to the nortwest and try them out.
Awesome ties and swap. Thanks gents!! I agree they are definitely even better in person!
Also got mine today, very nice looking flies. I really like David's purple skater, simply an awsome tie.
Got mine and they all look great! thanx everyone! can't wait to try um all out!
Thanks all. It was a good swap.
I've got an idea for another one that'll come in late summer as we get ready to fill our boxes for Fall/Winter.
Received mine yesterday.
Beautiful flies guys! All of them are very impressive and I myself, can't wait to try them out!:thumb:
Thank you Tom for running the show...
very nice ties folks. You have inspired me to start tying for my trip to the Klamath this fall. I might have to join the next swap.
Great flies guys.
