Discussion in 'Fly Swaps' started by Dan Soltau, May 3, 2005.
I have most of mine done. I just tested them out last weekend on the Yak and they kicked ass.
So, is it bad swap etiquette to have say 3-4 variations in your submission of sculpins...? Anyone?
I don't think it would matter, as long as they all catch fish :thumb:
I have recieved flies from the following people:
If anybody has sent theirs and their name isnt up above let me know
I have about half completed. I'll finish them up over the weekend. Hopefully mail them on Monday.
Finished, they're going out tomorrow. I decided to call them MIA sculpins. If you guys happen to know what they may already be called then you should let me know. I didn't go off a pattern so for all I know, my name is the one and only. Set me straight otherwise. Oh, and it doesn't stand for what you think.....heh heh. :thumb:
Got mine to the Post Office this morning.
Just sent mine out.
mine are in the mail
Mine are in the mail and I'm off to MT for 17 days. My tie is a Crystal Sculpin Bugger. It combines the basic profile of the Wooly Sculpin with body elements of a Seal Bugger/Crystal Bugger and a small head of spun hair a la the Bow River Bugger. I'll post the pattern with the picture when it's up.
Hook: TMC 400 size 4 (6X long, heavy wire)
Thread: 6/0 brown
Head: olive deer hair, spun and clipped short
Collar: olive deer hair tips, spun
Body: orange Ice Dub, picked out
Hackle: olive schlappen
Tail: marabou, olive over golden yellow
Mine should be in the mail this evening or in the morning. Depending if we float the Sky tonight. Can't wait to get these.
Sorry mine are this late. They will be in the mail this afternoon. Mail is quick going wests so they may even be there tomorrow. Monday for sure. :thumb:
Mine are goin out tomorrow, hope u like them.
Earth to Dan. How about a status report. Are they all in? :hmmm: :hmmm:
Ok, here is mine
I will give dan a call tonight to see whats up, i havnt spoken to him in a while. He might be really busy with work, so i will see how he is doing with flies getting there and such.
My internet has been down and I stay logged in so i couldnt log in else where. Anyway, I am still waiting for zens flies and they will be sent when I receive his flies. They look great so far, and BTW southpaw is out. If i dont get zens flies i will send them out the first regardless. Thanks for all who made my life easier with envelopes and a buck or two!
Dan, I stay logged in on my home computer and I can log on from work without any problems. Give a shot. Wait for Zen's. I want one of the great looking things. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
I am going to wait and see if I get the other dozen I dont have yet. I will send them out on thursday with a little surprise for everybody from yours truly. Sorry about it being so late and thank you to those who had theirs in on time. Peace easy
Sorry i was so late, i got the date mixed up with antother swap im doing. Anyways, Dan has them now, i think they are all in the mail because he is in montana fishing.
I am sending them today but I am missing one dozen, so you guys wont get the full dozen. Thanks guys and sorry for the delay. I threw in a little baitfish fly for everybody so they arent missing a fly.
