    Ron, I got excited when I saw that you are running the marathon fly swap again. I am afraid that I have a lot of things happening in my life right now and I don’t think that I will have the time to do the swap justice.

    I had a lot of fun with it last year and learned a ton. For anybody that is new to tying, but afraid that you are not good enough, I received nothing but support from Ron and the other guys last year, learned a lot and received a bunch of really cool flies. If you want to get better at tying and have a bit of time to devote to it I would highly recommend joining. Just look at the title of the swap, BEGINNER/Intermediate Anti-Shack Nasty Marathon Fly Swap.

    Thanks again for running the swap last year Ron. I hope I can catch next years.

    If I counted right I'd be the 10th spot. I'd like to join if there's room.

    Thanks

    Hey Folks,

    Back from Idaho. The fishing was great, several 20 fish days. Weather was beautiful, nice people, great cabin. Who could ask for better? Did manage to slip on a snot rock and mangle my left wrist, but I could still cast and double haul, no problem.

    By my count we have 9 signed up for this years swap, still room for one more.

    No need to let anyone know what your tying each month, just tie them up and send them in. If a couple people tie the same fly, there are always differences between tiers, maybe you'll learn something new.

    Ned and Jane, are you two tag teaming the swap? No problem either way

    To all the folks who signed up while I was gone, welcome to the madness.

    Now get them scissors snipping, and bobbins spinning, Halloween will be here before ya know it.

    Hello Ron,

    Glad you guys had fun!

    Just me in the swap. Jane is busy swapping on a different board. I should probably change my moniker as she is never on this board.

    I can't wait to get going. Just finished my last swap and ready for another.

    Hope all is well,
    Ned

    iagree This smiley just seemed appropriate.

    I too have gotten a jump on my flies (8 down, 4 to go) so as not to conflict with deer season.

    The ironic part is that I too am tying Bloody Mary Bead Heads (sz 12). Well, at least we aren't tying the same size:beer2:

    Hope all is well,
    Ned

    Dave, Sorry Buddy. We had a cut off date of October 5th.

    Guys, your tying 9 flies this month, nymphs. My mail box is feeling lonely out there. Let's fill that pig up.

    I will make up toe tags tonight and ship in the morning. A big ugly bug is coming your way. New pattern for me, so it is not pretty, but it will take fish.

    Anyfish,

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If trout think your fly is good enough to eat, who am I top argue.

    Dang, you guys are just too darn quick. I haven't even sent out the "Welcome to the Swap Letter" and already I have Anyfish's flies sitting here, Nice looking nymphs, AnyFish. I may have to copy that one before I ship them out.

    gmbjr,

    Jeez Dude, what do you do for a living? Whatever it is, I don't want to do it. I hate pain and broke anything hurts.

    Let us know how your getting along, Okay. Good work on getting those flies in the mail.

    So I saw that this swap was full, and that another tyier was rejected. But if I can, could I jump on board starting next swap due date? I don't even mind having to do a 2 for 1 on the first swap in....
