    I had nearly the same experience as Whit. Flies were sent very early, contacted him and never heard back. I will keep checking back to see it any progress is made.

    I have safley given up hope on this swap. 9 or 10 or however many flies we were supposed to tie....what a waste of my black and purple spey tied general practitioners, not to mention a few hours at the vise. Hope Boaderfly has a great time fishin them, not good fish karma.

    Chris and Dana should kick his ass off the forums, IMHO. He's a predator.

    You guys are unfortunately screwed, this chump makes a habit of this behavior by the looks of it -
    The fish Gods know, and bad JuJu will fall upon his fishing runs...

    That seems odd since I have done business with him, everything was great and seemed like an intelligent guy. I am sure there is an explanation or a possible personal issue he cant disclose. Anyway my transaction was a couple of hundred dollars and went over without a hitch. Sorry to here the bad news on the swap.

    I would be more prudent and take a deep breath................let some time pass and see what happens..............getting someone dropped from another boards swap may just fuel the fire. Sometimes shit happens................."Sure am but tying up a few more for the guys that sent in flies, you got to have something to show for your work and three flies are not good enough" by Borderfly on 03/03/2010.....................Maybe the guy is really trying........................Just saying

    so I really want this thing to die, BUT...

    A) he says he only got flies from 3 guys, but I have counted at least 6 or 7 of us that sent him flies/
    B) I have had multiple PMs with the guy on the other site, and he called me out and us out again and again, but as soon as there was a threat of him being dropped from another swap he started to try to make nice.
    C) there are other swaps on SP that he ran in which people had issues with getting their flies
    D) I have had NUMEROUS people PM me from both sites telling me about their interactions with him in person and online, and that this is about the status quo with this guy, kind of hit or miss.

    So all in all, I think we should just write this one off as a lost cause, and don't count on getting flies back. if you do, it will be a pleasant surprise.
