  1. Hi All, Man, it seems like it has been long time and I guess it has been. I missed you guys. Life gives us so many things we can’t foresee but we work with it as best we can anyway. Irrespective of all that my love for fly fishing and tying has not gone away. I certainly can do neither as I did before but I will still try. As so eloquently written before, my life has seemed to taken on a more poetic view, so be quoted… “Of course, now I am too old to be much of a fisherman, and now of course I usually fish the big waters alone, although some friends think I shouldn’t. Like many fly fishermen in western Montana where the summer days are almost Arctic in length, I often do not start fishing until the cool of the evening. Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise. Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. I am haunted by waters.” Me, I’m not done. I have one last flurry. Lets fish
  2. Wrong forum iguess. Brain not what it used to be
  3. My set escaped the alter and made it to central California. Another great selection. Thanks for hosting Rockworm and my apologies to the swappers for my delay in getting my ties in.
  4. A fresh set of flies are in the hands of the USPS..
  5. I too apologize for being late. I've been a member here for some time and have been in numerous swaps and hosted several too. I don't come on the site nearly as much as i used to for some of the same reasons as mybadhabit. I don't have nearly the leisure time that I used too. Between battling certain health, familial, and an over abundance of work issues my time to log in and participate is nothing what it was. There are certain swaps that I don't want to miss. This being one of them. I have been in all the other evo swaps and have the collection and desire to keep adding to them. As for joining in other swaps, I occasionally join because I think I might be able to tie something the other swappers may appreciate, or there is a swapper involved whom i have a great respect for and want to add their tie to my collection (selfish I know but it is what it is). Others because it is a swap for a good reason (casting for recovery,wounded warriors, and so on). The fact for me though, regarding not being involved nearly as much as I used to, is that the emphasis on swaps seems to have changed. To me, and I may not be seeing it correctly, swaps used to have more discussion on the patterns, recipes, techniques, use of the fly; and, if you will, more of a "campfire" type camaraderie discussion about the swap, what was being tied, and general BS'ing. Now the emphasis seems to be not so much on any of that and all that goes with the art/hobby but on making a deadline. Sorry I have enough deadlines in my life already. Hence, here I am responding after 1:00 A.M. local because it is the only free time I have and the clock is my enemy. If I hit the sack now I'll get about 4 hours of rack time. I tie to remember that there is more to life than deadlines. Having said that i guess I should refrain from joining anymore swaps until the deadline is not the most important part of the program. Please don't misunderstand me, honoring a commitment is without question one of thee most important things in life and is without a doubt the honorable way. I screwed up and there is no excuse offered herein. Just a personal perspective that may be flawed. You guys have always been the best. One of my greatest desires is to sit down and share a meal with some of the folks on this sight, and if lucky enough, sit around a campfire and discuss all of life's' happenings. Especially the fishing of that day and the fishing to come. If anyone is put off or pissed at my comments please give me a break. It is now 1:27 here on the left coast, I need to sleep so I may perform for my employer, and I need to have a drink or take something to help me sleep becuase I'm so jacked up from intense and long days. Jim P.S. I would wait months for ties from RRSHS. I'm not going to fish these swap flies this season anyway. If there is a pattern tat screams "fish me" I'll tie up some replicants and fish those. I already have flies that are very effective on the waters I fish. For unknown waters I'll start off with what the locals use. Flies from RRSHS are worth the wait. Even if it is a long wait. The guy, like many on this site, knows his sh!t.
  6. Bob, Please drop me from the swap and open up the spot for someone else. I have been unable to make the deadlines in the other swaps I'm in and really shouldn't commit to any more until I get my crap together and meet my previous commitments. Jim
  7. Kevin and swappers, I have to admit that my procrastination has bit me in the rear. No explanation or reason except that I am way over extended. I should not have signed up and taken the spot from someone else. I will try to get them in the mail this week if the swapmiester and swappers want me to follow through. Let me know My apologies for being so tardy. Jim
  8. My mailbox has been emptied so i should be able to receive messages again. I very rarely keep addresses of swappers so I usually need them every time.
  9. The foxy blue softies have evolved, need an address.
  10. Haven't forgot about you Kevin just been real busy. I do need an addy though.

  12. I've been schooled. I have made some edits to the recipe above at the request of our friend and badass swapmeister the rockworm. I hope this soothes the swapping beast that he is.
