    Fishboy,

    Just wondering what's the official protocol for Toe-Tags and Receipes. As mentioned earlier I ended up with 16 flies. So I plan to put one toe-tag per set of two flies. Should I also include a receipe for each swapper. Or should I send you the master receipe? Just trying to get my ducks in a row. :thumb:

    For my toe tag I usually just put the pattern, my screen name, and then my e-mail address. If one of you guys can take pictures of the flies and then post to the site, we can add in the recipe to our own flies with any additional notes... So who has a digital camera ;)

    I'd be willing to do the photos. However,I don't want to step on any toes. I know Jesse has a brand spanking new 12giga pixel...super mighty macro...extra tele photo...lookout Ansel Adams digi cam that he's probably dying to break in. :rofl:

    Umm, what's a toe tag? I just put mine in the mail. Sorry, this is my first swap, I didn't know there was a certain presentation that we needed to do. :(

    All I included was 8 flies for the group plus 4 (nonarticulated) flies for Fishboy plus an addressed envelope plus money for shipping.

    As for the recipe, I posted it in the patterns section (though the pictures are crap).

    Trevor

    Hey Spoke who put a nickle in you!!! What are worried about stepping on someones toes for you been stepping on mine so much the tops of my shoes are worn out. Besides I haven't even got the camera yet, it is Christmas present for my lovely wife. So take all the pictures you want, I am sure the ones you take of my flies will be out of focus and in black and white.
    I will bring "Grande Ronde Rudy" my Christmas swap fly to the get together on Friday and you can practice on it.

    I thought he was making a rhyme.. That he was quite polite. But that's just because I am always looking for the good in people. :)

    Okay! That's just about enough out the both of you. Don't make me turn this car around! I would like to take the opportunity to tell you both that I will be providing the refreshments for tomorrow evening's get together.

    You each will be enjoying a nice pint of SHUT THE HELL UP! :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    Fishboy,

    Mailed my flies this afternoon. The guy at the P.O. said they should be there by the end of the week. :thumb:

    I have a few more to tie and will have them all done this weekend for sure. I will mail on Monday so you should have mine next week. I am looking forward to seeing all the other contributions.
