    Sean, are you still alive?? Have you finished your flies? Are they in the mail?

    Give us a report. :beathead:

    Thanks Connor. I was going to suggest you just mail them out. Pretty rude in my opinion for someone to sign up for a swap & then have no contact & never tie the flies and make the rest of the group wait. Thats why deadlines are given. :beathead:

    Just my 2 cents...

    sorry everyone ive had so much going on i seriously forgot all about the swap. today was the first day ive checked the site in 2 weeks and i got a PM from twinlakesleech that jogged my foggy memory. im sorry guys. im out east without my vise so i cant whip anything up until sunday

    again i apologize my bad. but dont wait for me. the swapmeister can keep the extras.

    ill make up for it in future swaps. that sucks the first one i sign up for and i space out on it.

    Sean falls off of our Christmas Card lists, but we all still want to fish when you get back west.

    Okay Sean, you did not mention why you are back east so i don't know whether we should forgive you or not. If you are back there fishing - you are forgiven :thumb: If not, well i am not so sure. The one question i have is, you left your house without your fly vise & materials??? Okay, we will forgive you this time... :)

    i was in montana drinking beer and fishing with an old buddy from high school. it was a spur of the moment trip and i actually forgot my vise and materials along with one really important box of streamers. :beathead:

    now im in pullman visiting my girlfriend. you know, drinking her beer, raiding her fridge. the good life.

    im laid off right now so ive been bumming around hanging out fishing. ill be back this weekend then im gonna start chasing steel again.
