Tom, iffn I get em before the 24th, I'll use em on them Native Goldern trucha. Otherwise I'll use em on the less than acceptable punes of WNC & WV when I get back. Say, you tie skrimps, crab or mullets? Lookin to expand my range on surf donkeys.


Sorry...didn't take pics....and I was feeling like a slacker of a host till you asked  :laugh: 
Y'all should have them by Friday.... Tranny  I'd love to help you out but all my shit including my floaty botes are piled up in a shed awaiting for the day I can fix it up into my man cave....unfortunately I just took a wad of cash to pay for all new flooring and paint in the house and to finish up the deck in the back....I've also got a shit ton of cleaning up to do around the property. I just blew $1,800 on a DR power grader.....I think the wife is expecting some shit to get done around and tying in the near future looks bleak  b'; 

Its gonna kill me if any good swaps come up on the Suk and I have to sit back and watch  >:(


Got my flies Friday. Thanks for holding on and getting this done OB


Nice ties! Thanks all, esp. Tom.

It ain't easy be swapmaster to the stars retards.

This is why I don't do fly swaps any more. You cheap basturds go buy some flies if you are too lazy to tie some to fulfill your obligations. Don't sigh up for the shit if you ain't going to deliver.

Steve....I tied for what I signed up for...if you had read the post.....I wanted to throw some extras in as a thank you but switching jobs had me putting my tying shit up because we are also remodeling the I threw in some store bought flies as extras.....sorry I let you down....oh wait..... You weren't in this thing so its none of your fucking business!

Not aimed at you Tom. You give away more quality tied flies than anyone I know. I'm talking about some of the other conic no shows. Sorry you took it that way. I was talking about swaps in general like the NCAA one and any number of others where people sign up and never come through. I have never known you to fall into that category. If everyone could tie like you and took care of their responsibilities I might participate. We good now?

It's all shit, piss and bliss.

Fair enough....but I sent each person back 4 hand tied flies to their two (except for trout fanatic who sent three for everybody) plus sent the cash back to those who added postage....I really read it as though you were shitting on me for copping to the fact that I threw in some store bought flies which I would never normally do but circumstances have me in a position where I couldn't do all I wanted. I felt like I was just trying to be generous and got shit on for it.

Definitely not my intention. Now that I read the whole thing I see what you're saying. Like I said, definitely not my intention to single you out, or say something about you buying store bought flies. Hell you did the right thing.

No friendly fire here fellas.

You invoked the NCAA poll flies?

There's more than a few deadbeats who ain't paid up yet.
