i don't need one back. they should be done this weekend and wil have them in the mail by tuesday
Crap I think I only sent 6, don't send one of mine to me, or Zen, I can give him one at Dry Falls.
Ok, I'm a little over halfway done, but I've got a last minute trip that I can't take my tying stuff on. I should have them finished and in the mail on the 11th.
Thanks for the update. Everyone else doing ok?
Got yours tody. Pretty cool idea with the swivel.
ok i just finished mine, but ran into 2 minor problems. 1: i didn't have enough of the same stinger hooks so 5 of you get owner hooks and 2 of you get red gami octopus hooks. 2: i thought i had enough orange rabbit to do 7 of these flies but ranout of it after 5 1/2 of them so had to go and buy another bag and the one bag they had left is a little brighter orange then the last, so one of the flies will have the brighter orange and one of them will have 1/2 duller and 1/2 brighter orange. my excuse? well i have never tied this big of flies and thought i had enough orange rabbit and the stinger hooks, well i thought i had another bag of them. that's what i get for not doing a proper inventory before tying. i would have had enough hooks if i wasn't experimanting with different color combos before hand. my bad. they look pretty much the same though so in my opinion no harm done. i will try and mail them tommorrow
WTF unacceptable, I vote we kick Mike out.
good looking out ibn, i appreciate the love.
5 days left! How is everyone doing?
Rolled back into town last night, I'll finish up the rest of the flies tonight and ship out Tuesday.
Um...I am kinda screwed. I got back from mexico 3 days LATE and my hooks didnt make it home with me. Unless you guys want some shitty half assed flies on bad hooks as we have no fly shop in town, I am gonna have to pull out, sorry guys.
Do em on tubes! What a jip, like 2nd swap w/you where you've pulled out!
You'll never get the ladies if you keep pulling out early like that.
I tied mine on tubes as well.
Tubes, tubes, tubes.... I'm goin' for lingcod in May (I think) and I nee dsome big ugly flies for that venture, so tie 'em on tubes!
Hey...I have some big shock and awe tubes I forgot I tied up that would be great for saltwater or night fishing, I will toss those in the mail. Put me in coach.
My flies will mailed tomorrow morning. I posted a photo of my submission in my gallery. This weekend and today are killing me. Never am I going to join five swaps with deadlines all in a two week period. I still have feeling in my finger tips.... I think.
you should be getting mine today or tommorrow
Mine are about 1/2 done. Between my Mexico trip and crazy work schedule the last few weeks I've been swamped. I plan to have them in the mail Wed.
