    When the flies arrive, I'll post some photos. I'm looking forward to them all.

    Sorry for the delay, I have been working night and day on a DVD. I will have mine in the mail tomorrow, with a little extra for the swap master.

    Who is going to take the photos, I just got a new lens and could assist if needed. Still learning how to use it, but here is a shot I took with it the other day.

    Huh? Just have Marty take the photos of each fly. Upon swapping, he will have a submission by each of us to photo.

    BTW my fly evolved throughout the six ties so the one that should be photoed is the one marked "THIS ONE" on the underside of its tag.

    I didn't have time to toe tag each of these with string, but have them mounted upright in a paper based and packaged in the box.

    My submission is called "Firewater" which I can uniquely call my own. I will post a recipe soon and thanks Davy for running this swap and thanks to all the participants!!!!!

    Yeah I say go for it Marty. That new toy (camera) you have looks like it gets the job done for sure. And you definatly have the skills, both in tying and photography.
    Hey Davy, While I tried my best to duplicate each fly as close as possible, like Obi Id say there was a little evolution at work also. So pick the best, or Least worst!!:eek: looking one in your eye and send it to Marty. Martys camera doesnt look like it will be to kind to flies that are low on the evolutionary scale!
    By the way my offering is the green butt skunk variation as best as I can remember its
    Tail: red golden pheasant crest
    Body: green and black seal fur
    Hackle: black Schlappen
    Throat: red guinea
    wing: red and white goose, hen argus pheasant wing, peacock wing quill veiled with jungle cock
    Thanks to Davy for putting on the swap, Marty for taking on the pics, and to everyone else involved. Looking forward to seeing the whole grouping as one. Hope your all getting some river time. Kevin

    I need to apologize guys, so many issues this week with only two flies to go and these shaky old hands, if you want to continue without me let me know or I could send to the individuals.
