    Somebody this ugly and with a southern accent...not a chance!
    The only threat I can muster is against critters with a pea-sized brain, and all too often they win!

    I don't think so Scott
    I've seen your ties and I think some fat bastard trouts are in deep doo-doo

    Gefilte

    did you get mine yet ?
    I am worried the guy at the post office was distracted on the amount of postage given a famous model was behind me in line at the post office in Magnolia


    They haven't come back to me but I think they should be there by now given neither rain nor hail nor dark of night would keep that guy behind the counter from stairing at the customer behind me

    I would have said something but there is some reality to the phrase
    GOING POSTALE


    reminds me why I like face to face swaps so much


    let me know

    The flys look great!
    Most of the swap has been mailed out, but a couple people missed counted, and thus a couple will go out in a day or so.
    Sorry, and thanks for making this swap such a quality gig!

    Enjoy!

    I just got my flies in the mail. They are outstanding, not a dud in the bunch. I'm sure these will all catch fish. Now I gotta go get 'em wet. Thanks to everyone, especially our Swapmeister!

    Eric,

    Glad you got the flyies so quickly!

    I dont have time to make the photos of the flyies, but if someone else wants to make the photos and share them, i'm sure others would appreciate it...

    Enjoy the flyies, and updates us as to how they produce for you,
    Ben

    Got the flies today and they're excellent specimens every one!

    Nailbender, fine fine spiders, love the colors!

    Kelvin, what's the body material on your double reverse spider? Very nice fly!

    Ron, nice classic for our waters! That fly is a winner (by experience).

    Kerfwappie, you make Bob proud. Every beach bum needs those real soon.

    A few came without toe tags so don't know their creators but big thanks to all who participated. A really excellent SRC swap.

    Very nice flies, now if the wind hail and lightening quit for a day I will hit the beach.

    Thanks everyone, Doug
