View Full Version : Anyone up for a fly swap? One dry, one other
10-21-2008, 02:01 PM
Is anyone interested? I'm thinking of two of your favorite Smokies flies. One dry, one wet-nymph or streamer. I would need 10 tiers to make a go of it. Flies to be mailed to me by early December, I'll mail back by Christmas. If I get ten entries, then we can set up specifics.
I've been in a couple of these and collected some good models to tie from. For example, I've have two killer patterns- a Sulfur dry and a Caddis Nymph, that are not in any pattern books.
1. Kytroutbum- Little River Sulfur Hal Jansen Caddis Nymph
2. MickinMS - Para Adams beadhead pheasant tail- got them!!
3. jzimmerman- neversink caddis beadhead housefly- got them
4. flyred06 -Elk hair Caddis Squirrel tail clouser- got them!!
5. rgp759 -BWO para Beadhead Prince - got them!!
6. flyfisher-ndk Stimulator B.H.R.L.W.H. nymph- got them look great!!
7. Buckeyetrouter- Tellico
8. Swap closed- no more interest

Post what you want to tie when you decide so we don't get duplicates.

I was going to put in a small squirell tail clouser and a black bodied elk hair caddis. Is that good?:redface:

Got them. I hope we get more entries. It might have been better to run this in Jan and Feb, but I'll be chasing Redfish and Snook in Fla then. I need to have the flies sent out right after News Years Day at the latest.

Got you. Room for three more before closing.

I'm going to close the swap as nobody else seems interested. My thermometer will read in the 20's tonight and I saw some spits of snow yesterday so its time to start filling fly boxes. If the tiers will shoot me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org, I'll reply with the specifics.

MickinMS sent his flies in. They look super! I'm trying to finish mine up tonight if I can recover from mourning over Michigan Football!

I thought they gave up football this year... following Tennessee's lead.

I've also started on mine I'll try to get them finish up and in the mail sometime soon.

I've gotten one email that they are in the mail and have sent out a reminder email this morning. I hope to send them out as soon as I get the last set or day after Christmas. I probably gave too much time but with the holidays, I really wanted give enough time not to discourage anyone. We don't have a lot of swappers on this board. A couple others, I'm on hold monthly swaps that fill up before I usually know.

Sent mine USPS a couple days ago they said it should be there with in four days of me sending in so maybe they'll be there Friday.

hey Randy.....hadn't heard anything from you about receiving my flies yet and it has been a week tomorrow........let me know if you received them yet......sent via snail mail
12-19-2008, 12:52 AM
Haven't gotten them yet. I hope they come tomorrow(Fri.). I've got another one in the mail also. Just checking did you get my email Tuesday? I switched over to ATT. and upgraded. It seems as soon as we get one issue resolved, another shows up.

sent them last friday.....getting worried now about what to do.....is there time to redo them, could have them out Sund. or Monday but that would screw up the rest of the swap mailing........

Jzimmerman's just came in today's mail. He mailed priority. My mail delivery is early afternoon tomorrow so lets wait to see. I really don't think waiting a couple days more is an issue. I just hope they are not lost! I'll let you know as soon as my mail comes. Do you get my emails or do you want me to post here?
12-21-2008, 08:20 PM
Didn't come in Sat. PM mail. Shoot me an email at: randallsale@ATT.net.
