Discussion in 'Fly Swaps' started by StuFarnham, Jun 19, 2005.
Mine went in the mail today.
The latest news is no news since the last news :clown:
Scott's, David's, and Mike's flies are in hand.
Trevor's, Hywel's, and mine are still pending. I mailed Hywel some red fox so he could tie some Reynards.
I am finally back at the vise. Tonight will tell whether I tie half a dozen Lanctots, or cop out and do something more familiar, like some GBS Matukas or Shewey's Spawning Purple.
Updated update 7/9
Trevor's flies arrived in today's mail, so very spiffy pink Waddington prawns. I'll photograph & post later today at http://www.farnham.ws/AA Swap 2005.htm. If I get mine finished today I will psot them as well.
I talked to Hywel -- he is jammed up at work and his flies will be about 1 week late. That's fine w/me, as long as people let us know -- I know how it goes sometimes.
How are we coming?
My flies are done. Hywel said he'd have his in this week (and I happen to know he is on vacation, so he ought to have time...)
Sounds good to me, hell i can't use them anytime soon anyway
ok by me.
Fine here also...I've been really busy fixing the little quirks with this new bronco I just purchased I haven't even thought about the swap...
I an supposed to see Hywel tomorrow for breakfast and will get his flies then. A couple of photos, and the swap slies should be in the mail on Monday.
Update: Hywel had to miss breakfast today, he will mail me his flies. I am going out of town for 9 days as of Saturday. If I don't have Hywel's flies by Thursday's mail, the swap flies will go out without them and I will redistribute the excess flies among everyone.
Thanks *very* much for your patience and understanding.
The flies, (the pattern shall remain a surprise) are boxed up and'll go in the mail tomorrow morning. I *pray* that they'll be in Stu's hands by Thursday...
Albeit late - you'll still get them, I promise!
And they are off!
I got Hywel's flies today, some very nice Signal Light Marabou tubes (sans hooks).
Flies will go out in tomorrow's mail, thanks for participating!
Thanks Stu for a great swap...got mine in the mail yesterday and I'm lovin'em!!! Too bad the one I can't duplicate is the tube fly. I don't know how.
Ditto! Thanks for a great swap, you guys.
Got mine. Thanks everyone! The flies look great.
just got mine yesterday... Great job guys. Thank you.
I just realized that I had neglected to upload the last 3 photos. my bad!!!
As soon as the upload completes, you will be able to see them at http://www.farnham.ws/AA Swap 2005.htm
The pink photo should be a Waddington Prawn by Trevor Wilson.
