All these ties look good fellas!
The swap is coming to a close, everyone has their flies done and I am just waiting to receive all of them!
Mine went in the mail yesterday.
Mine are in the mail.
I've ended up working more than I expected, so earlier this week sent off two of the same fly each, a Summer skater in sizes #6 and #8. They're tied on the relatively new Daiichi 2110 van klinken bomber hooks.
I've had the best of luck dressing them with a boot water repellant(as per Ralfish), but I wasn't going to cover someone else's flies with something that smells like animal fat, pine tar, and ass
Anyhow, I hope you guys like them when you get em'.
Got em all! Flies will be back out on their way to you all Monday or Tuesday, depends on when I get the photos done.
Thank you, Nick for being the Swap Meister and whenever you do another swap put me on your list. Thank you to all tiers, the flies look awesome.
Thanks everyone, this was my first swap and the flies are great. My apologies as my "Blue Charm" somehow turned into a "Black Charm". Somehow I managed to tie the entire batch with black hackle feather instead of blue and didn't realize it until it came time to ship them out. I don't call myself the "underachiever" for nothing.
I joined another Fly Swap and we need more awesome tiers to join please check out the FLY SWAP for dry flies.
Flies look awesome fellas! This was my first swap as well and i am looking forward to doing some more. Great variety in the ties from the swap which was the best part. Im looking forward to fall next year when i can skate up some steelhead with some of those nice ties!
