Discussion in 'Fly Tying' started by Nick Riggs, Mar 12, 2006.
Mine are done, I'll be mailing them on friday.
I got Randy's flies and I really like them. Keep em' coming guys.
Hey i got yer messaage and will hopefully ill send them out soon, i just got to go tie them up first:rofl: dont worry they will be in by the due date.
My flies are being mailed today. I posted a photo of my submission in my gallery. Please enjoy!
Mailed them today, would've done it friday, but had to find a box to put them in.
So far the only one to not send in flies is Cam09, but that isn't a problem. Anyhoo, every set of flies that I've got looks flawless, I am absolutely in love with all of them. One slight problem though, I have tied a pattern that looks similar to Cameron Derbyshire's. I tied a crawdad and it looks mighty like his, which you can see in his gallery. Now, since I have time and the flies, I was wondering if you boys would like me to tie up a different pattern? I know that the purpose of a fly swap is to diversify your fly box and I don't think that it would be fair to send out 2 similar patterns. So if anyone has thoughts on the situation, post something, I would be more than happy to re-tie my pattern, it would pose absolutely no problem for me. Thank you.
That would spoil the fun of seeing which one catches more fish and thus the chance to redicule the loser. Kidding of course. Whatever pleases you will be fine with me.
I could always use more crawdad patterns. I have plenty of willing smallmouth to try them on.
Alright then, Crawdad it is.
Hey guys the flies are all packaged up ready to be sent out in the morning, cant wait to see what you all tied. hope everyone is having a good easter day.
Cam09, I haven't got your flies yet but, get this, the last time I saw the mail-lady, she was broken down on the side of the road. So her 1940's mail carrying jeep may have something to do with it. I look forward to sending you all your prizes. And, yes, easter day was good, thanks for asking.
All The flies are in now and they will be on the way back out to you guys tomorrow. BTW, every one of them looks great.
O.K., They're finally in the mail. Sorry it took so long, I have strep throat and an ulcer. I have never been this busy in my life, senior year of high school, applying to college, working, doctor visits, finishing AP classes, doing fly swaps, taking care of my mom (surgery), and Grandma (broken foot) are wearing me down. I posted all the pictures of the flies, they're in my member gallery, i'm going to get a fly swap gallery for them later though. Hedburner, I need your address because I lost it already. I'm really sorry this took so long.
No worries from me. Take care of yourself and family.
Hey got the flies in today they all look great:thumb: thanks to everyone in the swap and a speical thanks to AbsoluteHog for putting on the swap. hope you all have a great day on the opener this weekend and maybe even catch a fish or two
