    IF it's more than one fly count me out. My dad just underwent emergency bypass surgery, and I don't have time for more. I just had to cancel my Baja plans. Hopefully it will be a good salmon year...

    Sorry guys for the late reply, one is the final concensus.

    Also, as you may have noticed Homer2Handed wants in...so I'll leave it up to you guys to decide if one for fly is alright? It's fine by me.

    Philster, sorry to hear about your father, if you don't have time I'll cover for you...let me know?

    Andrew.

    Thanks andrew, but I already had 4 done, so I should have no trouble covering. Pops is tough. He "arrested" on the table when they were preping him, but he pulled through, and two days later has moved out of ICU into the transition ward and is sitting in a chair. Tough bastich!

    Ok...I guess we need a decision...Homer2Handed can join the swap I'll tie up extras incase we don't have 49 flies on "divvy up day".

    Final swapers are:

    Me
    Metalhead
    Ibn
    Philster
    Steelheader69
    Lambchop
    Homer2Handed

    Due on the 13th of August, I'll be nice...flies go out so people have "ammo" for the following weekend...so that actually gives you until Monday the 16th to put them in the mail.

    Mail to:

    My Dad had a triple bypass two years ago...didn't even know he had a heart problem...long story short...he had 4 yards of mulch delivered to the house and it sat all winter, well it became a home for hornets. Needless to say while doing Spring/Summer yard work he stabbed the nest with a pitch fork. Got stung over a 100 times; which started to close is air way. My Mom got him in the car and started the 20 min. drive to the hospital, however, only got 10 min. out and noticed my father wasn't breathing...so she pulled into a firestation that was on the way.

    Dad was rushed to the hospital and during the ER visit they examined him and found the three blockages. Pretty much told him that if they didn't find these at that moment he most likely would have died very shortly.

    I think I was more concerned than he was! Pretty much recovered in two weeks and was back to gardening!

    The end result he is afraid of bees and damn near flips the canoe everytime we are out fishing Squalicome Lake! :+

    Tube Fly Swap update:

    Thus far I have received flys from the following:

    -Ibn
    -Philster

    (Great flies...wanted to take one each and give them a "swim" on the Skagit...but didn't }( )

    Anticipated:

    -Metalhead
    -Steelheader69
    -Lambchop

    If I don't have all by Wednesday I'll postpone sending whatever I have on Saturday. Unless Ibn and Philster don't have a problem with a 'few' (2-3 days) more?

    Let me know what's up.

    Andrew

    I'll tie mine up today and should have them out in mail tomorrow. Sorry, I missed the post where you answered how many flies we were going to tie. So thought it was on a backburner. Will crank them out today.

    They are dead to me. I say we S***-List 'em. Two weeks late for sending in your flies is ridiculous, two weeks late with no communication from them is inexcusable
