A bakers dozen R.A.C.Y. Leeches are in the mail, plus a couple for the swapmeister.
Wayne's bug are in the mail!
Sorry I'm at work and didn't realize Bugthrower was logged in...
Well it looks like I'm wating for the snail mail, seems like everyone sent their pattern but I'm waiting for them to show up. Once they are here I can post photos and divy them up. The few extras I'll hand over to my grandson, He is so excited to see what flies I get in mailbox everyday. LOL
Finished mine last week, just waiting to get to the post office, should happen today.
And off they go... Just so you know I believe in the idea that uglier flies represent an easier meal (wounded, outcast etc.) and my flies reflect that ! :clown:
Got Ron and Waynes leech patterns today, once I photoshop them they'll be in the gallery. And thanks guys for the little bonus, you guys didn't have to do that.
My pleasure! Thanks for hosting ths swap! Sorry it took me so long to get such a simple pattern done....
I left the flies at home and forgot to mail them yesterday. Please forgive me for my sins! At worst case, I'll get them out via the mail tommorow. But if I get home early enough for work, I'll drop them by the late night tacoma post office....
Got Willies today, in the gallery.
Just waiting for James and the Flying Dutchman.
They are getting done. Changed patterns though. Too much hackle breakage and tooooo much time to tie the others (simiseal buggers). Modified the pattern. Working too much overtime. Twentyfour hours already this week. :thumb:
Done. Tagged. Boxed. Return mailing lables and postage included. Extra flies for the meister. In the mail this afternoon! Please find a different color background when you take the picture if you can or you might not see the bugger.:thumb:
OKay! Probably have them by the 15th and mailed them back to you guys the next day. Think I should have used a lighter background for some of them. The light tent I bought had three, black, blue, and red. Might try a different color with the dutchmans Have some picnic plates out with everyones name on it to divy them up. All in all it been fun hosting this swap, no worries about any shipping etc. I still have to tie a couple of more because my grandson decided he needed them before you guys, go figure.
Priority mailed out... Should be there tommorow. I decided to pull them out and hot melt glue the sharp edges really quick (saw it posted somewhere)...
Got the Dutchmans today, great job Steven. Posted in gallery with a lighter background per your request.
Got James ties today, should be divided up and in the mail tommorrow.
Nice picture of my fly. That background complements it very nicely and lets you see the all the detail that is in the dubbing. Thanks for hosting the swap.:thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
Gentleman, the packages are in the mail.
Awesome! Thanks Daryle!
