    Yo Roper, Waddup' Dog?

    I guess I'll have to meet you for the Denny's Grandslam breakfast just so that I can get to the show on time!

    No swap expert here, but usually, when as per the above example you have 6 folks in on the swap, they all tie 6 flies to mail to the swapmeister, included with the six flies is a self addressed stamped envolope just like the one you sent to swapmeister, so all he has to do is ship you the assortment of flies back in the envolope you provided. Is also cusomary to include an extra fly as a "tip" for the swapmeister. THe vanilla envolopes and some small box ( I have used a soap travel container) work fine, as far as postage, it costs the same both ways, so attach the same postage that it took to send it. Flies should be labeled with tyer's name. can't wait till spring.........

    I checked the mail this evening, and to my glee, got my Spring edition of Flyfishing and Tying journal. Immediately I thumbed through the pages checking out the stories and SUPRISE! Dave Witlock has put out this excellent article on how to catch of all things, CARP! So if you want some great reading he's included his ten tips on how to catch these critters, AND some patterns he's tied. I might have to give it a shot in the near future after reading this cool article...:thumb
