    Flies trickling in.... all lookin good fellas. Really lookin forward to putting the boat on the river soon!

    I know it’s a busy time of year, it certainly is for me. Working 75 hours a week plus hanging new doors, blinds and trim around the house and juggling family obligations. If anyone is concerned about their time line for the swap please drop me a PM so I know your status. Let’s keep this moving so we can all enjoy our new flies before things really get rolling fishing wise. Thanks

    I've got a couple left to do and I should be able to send them off on Monday. I ran out of the specific color of EP brush I was using but will pick some up today.

    Cheers!

    I caught bulls on 2 of the swap flies this morning. Thinking instead of the traditional “in the vice” fly photos I may photograph all of the swap flies in a fishes mouth.

    And these guys for on the surface. Despite the water temps they are more than willing to eat off the surface. Give it a try ;)

    I’ve also caught bulls on a few more swap flies as of Sunday. I busted off Scudleys white fly on some downed wood, so someone else will need to photograph that one in a bulls mouth.

    Pictures to follow, thanks for everyone’s patience and willingness to take on a fly swap through the holiday season. Next time I put one on, I will consider the timing a little better. Cheers dudes.
