      Mr. West I have given you a few flies, only to watch you snap them off on the back cast or in the tops of a tree branches. Even better yet advise you to use 2x tippet with this fly. Short time later you returning asking for a second fly. Ask what happened to the frist and you say a fish broke it off. Then you add I should of changed my tippet from 7x to 2x like you advised.
      Plus to let everyone know my fly is black and hot orange in color. So he is right his camera does not do just to the other flies.

          The camaraderie and friendly banter as we wait is half the fun of swapping. From the looks of the flies posted, this is turning out to be a great swap.

            I am sorry Mr. West I wasn’t total honest with the post. I know for a fact you have never fished 7x in your life.
            As for you 1WMF, we will see you on the water. I am hoping this year to create a fly that will stand a chance against that fly you created.

              I have good news, and I have bad news. The good news is that I have your packages ready to ship. They will be going out tomorrow.

              Now for the bad news. I regret to say that I have removed ArmyBrat from the swap. It is a week past the deadline, and I have not gotten confirmation that the flies have even been shipped. Some of you have shipped your flies express so that you would make the deadline. I greatly appreciate your effort. For that reason, I refuse to make you wait any longer for your new flies.

              All of the flies turned out well. I am very happy with the turnout we got for this swap. I was not sure we would even get 6 tiers. The pictures I took of the swap flies were not of the best quality. If you take better photos than mine, I would appreciate you posting pictures of the flies from this swap. Thank you for your contribution(s) to this swap and the Fly Tyer forum.

              Regards

              Shawn

              PS. To those that sent extra flies to the Miester, thank you very much. It was a pleasant surprise.

                    The rules and dates were posted up front, but I’m willing to wait. If they went out today, you should have them by Wed or Thurs, but as swap meister Shawn, ultimately it’s your call.

                          I can wait. Here in NH I am ice fishing with :ohmy: live bait for the next couple of months. Have you tried contacting him with a PM?

                            As someone who also didn’t come in on the right side of the wire, I’m in no rush, and am curious to see what these double ups look like

                                I have made a decision regarding Brats flies. When they arrive, I will stuff one in an envelope, and get it in the mail to you. I guess I must still have a little of the Christmas spirit left in me. I still have your original envelopes. If I do not have a mailing address for you, I will send a request for your mailing address through a PM.
