    To the person managing fly swap.

    I will not be able to get enough flies tied by the end of the month, for that reason I have to back out. Grandmother is in the hospital with congenitive heart failure, wont have much time to make any thing worth fishing.

    I hate having to do this cause I feel like I screwed someone else that wanted to be in the swap, but family issues are more important.

    The next swap I enter I will make it up.

    John

    FlylikeIdo,

    Why don't you post a pic of your fly? Then maybe one or a couple of people could do the rest. It might be a challenge that someone with a lot of time on their hands would want to take up. There are rabid tyers out there that would want to rally for the gipper, ya know.

    I sent my flies off Saturday the 26th I included John Clarks in the same box. Looking forward to seeing the returns. This ought to be a good swap for me since I fish lakes about 75%of the time. :thumb:

    P.S. After I sealed up the box I sent and got the postage on it I realized that I didn't put enough $$$ in the box to cover return. I owe you.. I will send a little package of goodies over soon to cover my mistake. :thumb:

    The clerk at the Lk. Stevens Post Office told me you'd have mine by tomorrow, 03 Mar, at the latest...

    I'll keep checking...

    Twenty lashes with the proverbial wet noodle for those of you who are still geting them in. ;) I was personally looking forward to having them in my arsenal for this weeks assult on the lakes. Oh well. I want to fish next to you guys. Maybe your strikes on fish are the same, late, and that will leave more for me. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: ;) . Can't wait to get them. This has been my first swap. Thanks Backyard for miestering it. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    Ok.. one step away from this being a done deal. Expecting Jabs flies soon, he kinda got wrangled into this swap at one of our open tiers tables, so after a few ptyd , he got a late start, but his chiro's are golden and I've seen them slay in action. So be a little patient and we will all be happy campers. :D

    I hope his chronamaids are as good as those the guys from Montana were using at Lenore Thursday. I really need some help in that department. :thumb:
