    Hi Ron,
    Yes... you did kind of scare me off, I hate to commit to something so far away, I have a hard time figuring out what I have to have done tomorrow let alone months from now :hmmm:
    However, I did just post the pictures of the fly's from the recent SRC swap, and they came out pretty good this time...so, considering Leaky is making noises about joining, I will take pictures of his and post them for everyone if you like.

    Trying to bump this up a bit. . . .

    For anyone on the fence about this swap, I can tell you that REE is a supreme swapmeister. You won't hear any fly swap horror-stories from his swaps.
    :D

    Order of the tie

    Ron,

    Can you give us a hint on what category we are going to tie first? By now you should have plenty of votes.

    Quick Update

    Howdy Folks,

    We are at 12 tiers, plus myself and I seriously doubt we'll get anymore. I still have to keep the swap open til the 15th of September though, as it was first posted.

    The overwhelming majority voted to take the flies in the order I listed them in the first post.So, the flies and due dates are as follows:

    Dry Flies - October 31st
    Wet Flies - November 30th
    Streamers - January 31st, 2005 (We take a break for December, maybe you could think of a Christmas theme fly? Give it some thought)
    Terrestrials - February, 28th
    Nymphs - March 31st
    Emergers/Cripples - April 30th.

    Tiers signed up are Dylon DePaulo, Theron DePaulo, Jim Williamson, Vickie Eagle Elk, Warren Perry, Greg (Just Learning), Matt Grunwald, Madison Angler, Randy Diefert, Leaky Tiki, Ski Bum and last but not least Icconrad.

    You all will be getting an e-mail or PM with the same info in the next day or two.

    We have two months to get a dry fly picked out and start gathering materials for the rest of the swap.

    Any questions, please drop me an e-mail or post here, I check the site a couple times a day and the same with the e-mail.

    This Swap is Still Open

    For all those who have been alookin', but not signing up, we still have 3 open slots for this shin-dig. The swap will remain open until September 15th, then close with whatever number of tiers we have.

    Thanks for taking an interest in the swap, be sure to keep your eyes open for the fly photos to be posted in the gallery to see what you missed out on by not signing up.

    Flies are in the Mail

    Ron,

    Today I put my dry flies in the mail to you. I know they are early, but my schedule is becoming unpredictable and I wanted to get them done before I am too busy to tie. I will email the recipe after you get them.

    Please leat me know when you get them

    Warren

    Warren,

    I'll let you know as soon as they arrive. Hope your trip back east was satisfactory. It's been a while since I was at the puzzle palace.
