Ha. Ha. Now that could be a killer fly!
Fly Porn??? :rofl:
Still have a couple weeks left. There is still time for a couple more participants.
How are the rest of you guys doing on your flies?
I must confess that I have not yet started, but have my supplies in hand, recipie on my bench and will get started on them in the next day or two. I'm just hoping not to be submitting a long fuzzy ball o'crap, but I think my pattern choice will be easy enough for a hack like me to tie. I won't procrastinate too much longer.
How's everyone coming along? Looks like it may only be 6 of us.
Only a couple of weeks left to get them tied & in the mail. As we get closer to the deadline, i will PM everybody my mailing address.
I must confess that I have had a road trip and a couple of projects that have side tracked me. I will dedicate some time in the week ahead to get my you know what together. I love deadlines, I'll beat it one way or another.
Sounds good Mumbles. Was just checking in.
PM's have been sent out with my mailing address.
By the way, i heard the hatch just started on Merrill. :thumb: Heard big ones rising to the dries.
TLL and others: Mailed my ugly attempts at making you guys laugh earlier today. Two flies for each of the five of you. The larger will surely make your eyes hurt and you will likely laugh out loud. I felt they sucked so bad I got up early this morning and retied another set, a bit smaller, and I hope a bit better quality. TLL, I added a couple extras for you, of a pattern that I tie a lot of, so you can see that I can tie some things. Thanks for letting me play along, even if my flies end up being scary halloween decorations or something you give to a newbie...here dude, try this pattern, it has been killing them (ha ha ha).
Good deal Mumbles. How is everyone else doing? Couple days left. I will be looking for them all in the mail soon. Thanks to everyone that joined in this swap. Now you have an excuse to go fish Merrill. Like Fly Punk mentioned earlier - the Hex Hatch started about a week ago.
Received Mumbles flies today. They look just fine and will catch fish!!
Received Ron's flies. They are nice!!! Can't wait to see the others. Is everyone finished and have them in the mail?
TLL, those are kind words that my flies certainly don't deserve. Thank you for the encouragement.
I won't call your bluff, but you are a fisherman. You know what I'm talking about. My flies will catch near sighted stupid fish, let's hope for lots of those!
No Excuses. I'm late for once! They should be in the mail this afternoon. Dryflylarry ended up doing a nymph for cripe sakes! I wasn't satisfied with my dry, so....... I have been having this sciatic nerve problem for the last month, which has been a pain, really, and sometimes hard to sit down for a while at the fly tying table, plus, I snuck out fishing in between pain spells! There ya have it! bawling:
Okay Zach, i mean Larry. :thumb:No problem. I will be looking for them next week. I am still waiting on a couple others also.
This is Zach. I mean dryflylarry! Well, of course I went to the post office and I think I missed the mail pickup at 4 PM. So.......You could likely not get them until Tuesday! Please forgive me. It will never happen again! I swear! Shoot me!
Got Larry's flies today. Looking good!!! I am still waiting on Dave's. Let me know Dave if they are in the mail so i can get these out to everyone.
Waiting for Dave's flies to get here. Hopefully i can get them all out on Monday.
Dave's flies have arrived!!! I will be mailing them all out today. Thanks for your patience.
