    yeah so.. umm like yeah.. mine are gonna be late.

    i have no excuse except, my pure lack of the things that make me do stuff on-time.

    Couple, three more days when i go to swedes to get more materials and... the job will be done.

    Thanks for everyone who has already sent their flies to me. They are all wonderful and well tied. I just wanted to give a shout out so you all know what is keeping me from sending the flies to each of the swappers.

    As of today, I only have 10 swap packages. There is still 6 swappers who have not sent their package. To keep this swap going, I would like everyone who is still working on their flies to chime in so I know how many to expect before I start distributing the flies to each tier. If there are leftover flies, I will send the leftovers back to the original tiers.

    I was considering distributing them randomly but I must say, some flies are masterpieces and other were quickly assembled. I am concerned that some of us might get the short end of the stick for working so hard on such great flies. The solution would be to send the flies back to the original tier so they can rightfully put them back into their own box.

    If all 6 slackers chime in, no problem. Otherwise, I might ask for your opinion on what to do with the rest. Maybe send them to Chris? :dunno

    Anyways, if you are still in or if you are out and have not said so, please chime in ASAP. I will give everyone 2 days and then make a decision.

    Cheers,

    Tony

    Before we jump on people about "quickly assembled" flies, lets take into consideration that some of us are still learning the "tie flying" trait ;). I for one know that my flies probably look "quickly assembled" but believe me, I probably spend two to three times the amount of time as the seasoned tiers do and to only produce half the fly?

    Anyways, I hope my ties were acceptable?? If not, let me know and I will send something else by tomorrow :dunno

    edit: oh ya, can we see some more pictures of the newest flies received??

    p'Trick,

    I give your flies second best over mine homeboy. Nice swimmers!:p I dig the flies you tied. I'm almost jealous. Sorry in advance if you see next year's big fish photo with your fly in the corner of it's mouth. That fly is awesome!

    I have been slammed at work since I took last week off to make Teleturns in the best snow ever. I will try and get a few more uploaded in the next few days. It has been hectic. Phone ringing off the hook and e-mails coming in faster than I can reply.:beathead

    If you have extras I feel it's a given that you as the swapmeister can keep them. If you want to donate some or all to Chris, that's a great idea too.

    You are no the last one but after I get yours, I am gonna swap them around and get them to the tiers. I feel kind of bad since we are missing about 3 swappers.

    You don't suck...a least no lees than me :p

    Flies will probably go out before the weekend folks.

    Tourtman 101--

    Not that it will help this swap much, but could you publish a list of the people who did send in their flies and a list of those who did not.

    In this way, we can all be sure we did what we thought we did and future swapmasters can proceed with caution with those who did not.

    I started jossling the flies around last night. It looks like a couple of unnamed stragglers made it in at the last second so our count is I think up to 15 or 16. Not bad for a bunch of slackers eh? (Me included)

    Either tomorrow or Thursday all will ship.

    Thanks again everyone.

    Sorry for the delay, all packages have shipped today.

    If I wasn't so busy trying to get everything completed before I leave for vacation, I would have the flies posted but I simply do'nt have time right now.

    Maybe next week.

    Troutman - thanks for hosting. You did not keep the extras! Seet flies all around, I am popping a few back to you in the next few days for your hard work riding herd on this one.
