Shawn do u have an update on armybrats flies?
I sent him one of mine last week…he shoulda received it by now.
ThanksJanuary 23, 2013 at 9:03 am #33798
I still have an extra one of carlavatky’s Sunfish if anyone is missing one.January 23, 2013 at 11:16 am #33801
I can see a bit of a problem when it comes to postage. If Armybrat sends his patterns to Shawn, is Shawn supposed to send them to the other members of the swap? And then, are we supposed to send a pattern directly to Armybrat?
I have no problem sending any of my patterns to someone because the price of postage for a single fly is negligible.
However, I don’t think it is fair that Shawn pays the postage to send single patterns to those of us in the swap.
Any suggestions?January 23, 2013 at 11:31 am #33802
I can send a self addreessed envelope for one…no problem here
Really would like to have one of armybrats flies,,i sent eem one of mineJanuary 23, 2013 at 2:28 pm #33804
ArmyBrats flies were waiting for me when I arrived back in Vancouver today. I will try to get the flies out to all of you before Friday.
Jeffro and Gene….I am not too concerned about the extra postage. I considered that, as well as the fact that the rules were clearly posted on how this swap was going to work. I figure this will be the only time I will ever make an exception to the posted rules. Most of you got your flies in way ahead of time. Some of you even paid extra postage just to ensure they arrived on-time. You tied twelve flies, you should get twelve flies in return.
I will try to post a photo of Brats fly tomorrow. BTW Gene…great job on the photo of the swap flies. That is a quality picture. I told you guys my pictures did not give those flies the justice they deserve.

It looks like I am missing 2 addresses. If you are not on my list, please send me a PM with your mailing address.
I do not have enough time to get the fly out to the above names, but I will get them out to you tomorrow. Fin…I do have a seaducer with your name on it. I will send it along with the double up.

I’m lost. Do we all need to now send a pattern to Armybrat? I have plenty of patterns so that’s not a problem. …just trying to determine the procedure.January 24, 2013 at 8:31 am #33825Gene Roberts wrote:

Gene…I am sorry for making this as clear as mud. I have all of the flies, and most of the addresses needed to complete this swap. You can sit back and relax. I should be getting your package together tonight. I am sending you a few extra patterns that will hopefully assist you with your afternoon bass dilemma. If you can not catch bass with these flies in the afternoon, I will be expecting an invite so I can witness this for myself.;)
I have already sent a couple of the packages out. Bighand and Brat have packages in the mail. I have six envelopes with the Double Up pattern from Brat. They could not go out today because the post office would not accept my packaging. I need to reopen the envelopes and add a piece of paper to use as a buffer for the fly. The post lady was concerned the envelopes may tear if I did not add that extra piece of paper. Either way, I will get these out tomorrow.
Thanks to all for your patience and understanding.
