    would someone explain to me ..if the theme of this swap says...humpty dumpty..assuming it means that fly of history, then why would the flies in this swap be anything other than that style of fly...
    ..second if you don't mind as well..would the host of the swap put up pics of the flies [with the tier's name next to them] for all to see what the members missed out on?

    ..sorry for the questions gents but I'd like to join a future swap but just like to get things cleared up before bouncing in..................AW

    Humpty dumpty is referring (however vague it may be) to pink salmon, aka "humpies."

    That's asking for quite a bit as I am already pretty busy. We'll see. And please, don't type in italics. Harder to read.

    Loren, it's pretty standard to post pics of swap flies. Mine will be in the mail in the morning.

    I will be posting pics, but not with everyone's name tag perfectly clear.

    "would the host of the swap put up pics of the flies [with the tier's name next to them] for all to see what the members missed out on?"

    Couldn't find the temple dog hair I needed for the clousers that I wanted to tie, so I did a little experimenting and came up with a skating type fly. Might be fun to get them to hit a fly on top.

    Hey Everyone,

    The flies are supposed to be in tomorrow. I was hoping there wouldn't be slackers in this swap, but if you can't do it, just let me know. Try to get them in within a week.

    Thanks guys​

    Hey guys, sorry for being such a slacker. I got swamped with work over the last week, and now have been sick in bed for a couple days. Flies are tied, but it's not looking like I'm going to make it out to the post office soon. (I just woke up after sleeping 14 hours- this cold or flu or whatever it is is kicking my ass.)

    If you want to continue the swap without me, I'm fine with that. Otherwise it may be a couple more days before I can get out to mail these.

    Did you get mine yet? Thinking I've could have just walked to Wooley and hand delivered them faster.
