    You need me to tie another pattern up so we can get this finished? I noticed your desk was kinda empty in your picture on the "Fly Tying Table" thread. Hope you find your gear so you can clutter up that desk!!

    Ha. Ha. Good one twinlakes!

    And to EVERYONE, I have received twinlakesleach and flypunks flies in the mail yesterday, and, let me tell you they are terrific ties! The dragonfly nymph is a killer pattern. Good job you guys. Nice. I like'um! Looks like we have only 8 tiers, so I can send your extras back so you can keep your fly box full. :thumb:

    Larry,

    Seriously, just keep the extras. I don't need them. Go look at my pictures under the "Fly Tying Desk" thread and you will see that i have a very bad addiction!!!!!!:thumb:

    Hey Larry. Keep my extras too. Believe me, my fly fishing/tying addiction is just as bad or worse than twinlake's. We have a bit of a unspoken competition of "He who dies with the most fly gear wins" thing goin on. Enjoy. Glad you like the patterns. :thumb:

    Alright! I received chattmr flies in the mail today all the way from Birmingham, Alabama! That's right, Birmingham. They are called the
    "Clouser Bucktail Dragon" and are quite unique. I guess the rest of us should start tying. I have received three (3) patterns in the mail already.
    Good Luck tying!!!

    Just checking in to see how things are going on this swap. Is everyone getting close to having their flies tied?

    Things, I think, are coming along. We could have shortened the fly tying time, but, remember I was giving guys some time to do their Spring fly fishing fever? OK. I decided on a feeble attempt at a dry Red Dragon, rather than a nymph. How's everyone doing? Did I PM everyone my address? :thumb:
