Discussion in 'Fly Swaps' started by mr trout, Nov 20, 2005.
Just letting ya'll know that there's about a week and a half before they should hopefully be sent in. I finished up mine the other day during a steven Seagal movie marathon....yeah... Tied a rubber legged red copper john, and an experimental pattern of mine called "the black widow". Loosely based on Smoot's Bloody Mary, but more differenter. I think it'll fish well.
Trevor , mine went into the mail system today. I included a Merry Christmas present for you . I hope that you like the flies too. They're my 2 favorite Nympho's.
Thanks for hosting, Anyone volunteer to post the flies yet?
I would but, my camera sucks and I'm not too computer literate either.
Anyhow, Enjoy the Holidays!
Sent mine today, a peeking caddis and a pheasant tail variation. Of course, I had to screw it up just a little bit. I forgot to send a return envelope. So you'll be getting that a couple days after you get my flies.
I can't post, as I don't have a camera at all. Hopefully someone does.
I sent mine in awhile ago I was just wondering if they got to you yet?
If they haven't reached you then I'm starting to get a little worried that some mailman out there might be doing a little nymph-o-maniac action on his local river.
ps. I got a camera with a good micro feature when the flies get in I'll see if I can get them posted on the site for everybody
I think that they showed up. I had ya'll send them to my home in Yakima, not here to the school where I am now. My mom has been putting all of them in my ammo closet, So I can check when I get home (thursday). I seem to recall her mentioning that I had a few of them waiting there already. I wouldnt worry about it. I'm sure it's all good.
Good luck on those finals
Crap! just got mine sent back to me for insufficeint postage. My stupid secretary didnt weigh it properly. I'll send it again tomorrow.
Of-fish-al flies recieved list!
Wow guys, I just got to look at those flies. They are amazing! They look a lot more artful than mine...:thumb: And I guess Biots are the hot tail material for this season. Almost all the flies, mine included, have biot tails...Go Biots!
So far I have flies from:
mine are in the mail
Thanks for Volunteering Silver!
Well, I'm just waiting on Pontooner's flies. I E-mailed the other day, and havent heard anything. Are you out there 'tooner? As soon as I get them or hear something new I hope to get the flies sent out ASAP.
Silver- There is a cool article on taking pictures of flies in this months Fly Tyer Magazine. Its by AK Best. Might be worth a read, FWIW.
My Flies hit the mail yesterday, sorry for being late fellas, running around with my head cut off trying to do my job, Christmas shop, tie flies and catch steelhead the last few days. Anyway I am kinda slow at tying but they are in the mail, hope u all enjoy.
No problem. I'll be looking for 'em. I hope everyone has a great Christmas!
Thanks for the heads up on fly tyer I'll definitely give it a once over so I can get the pics as high quality as possible.
Have a great christmas all
looking forward to the nymphos
Disregard, I can't read. I thought you had to be signed up by new years.
The flies are on the way! Lots of interesting patterns to learn from and copy. I was going to put little candy canes in the packages, but I forgot...So just pretend...
Sweet! I'm so stoked to see all the flies.
Happy New Year to all.
how did you get your flies today, its sunday no mail.
nobody said that they got them yet
