  1. I got my box with the 5th anual evolution swap! What a surprise again. Bruce, thank you so much for doing this, you deserve a monument! I got my 5 boxes out and examined them once again. They all contain great ties, almost to good to keep in the box! Year after year the flies are so nicely tied and evolution comes alive in the patterns and in the names, what a fun. A big thank you to all my fellowswappers who made this possible again. CU next year! Sjo
  2. I wish you a very happy holliday, Rockworm. I'll see the flies when they get here, be it September or if need to be in octobre, I don't mind because they are worth waiting for. Since I'm also one off the guys that sends his flies in late I think it's not on me to comment on that, but I understand that it is annoying. Sorry for that. It is the reason why I don't appear in much swaps anymore. Sad but true. So, enjoy your vacation! Greetings Sjo
  3. Found the addy, sorry for the panicbutton! Sjo
  4. Flies are done, need an addy. Can't find my saved messages anymore?! Greets Sjo

  7. That's cool with me Bruce! Didn't want to interupt any processes going on, just wanted to show my enthousiatic self
  8. I'll do the next one Blane, just holler! Sjo
  9. Whatever you choose is fine by me, don't do a poll. Democracy is overrated. You, Rockworm, are swapmeister, so make a choice and tell us about it.
  10. I'm in!!! So happy I saw this in time! Sjo
  11. I got my box really some time ago but I was not able to log in. Then I was busy with early pension so I forgot. Now I read back and realize I didn't give notice that my box arrived, What a cool swap again! This idea of Bruce takes us to great heights. Thanks for all your sweet tties and special thanks to you Bruce for your patience and your commitment to making this a succes. See you all next year! Sjo
  12. that's really cool Bruce. I'm glad they made it after all!
  13. My tubes were in the post the 22nd of August!! They are not too big, at least not compared to a 4xl streamer hook. Are they still not in? Should I rety them? My God, being very late because I fell ill and got into hospital is one thing, but then also the package getting lost in space, that is too much. What shall I do Guys? Rety or withdraw?
  14. My flies will hit the post tomorrow. I'm very thankfull to you all for your patience, you're a grand club of flytyingnerds and I'm happy to be one off yours. Greets Sjo
  15. Dear fellowswappers, I got a message from Bruce warning me that my flies are late. I was in hospital and totally lost track on this swap. I'm very sorry for that. I allready tied some tubes, five or six I think and i will complete the tying and send out the flis before the weekend. Then they will take 4 to 6 working days to get to Bruce. I will keep you informed bij posting the progress in this topic. Cheers Sjo
  16. I'm so pleased that you all made it possible for this old horse to comp(l)ete again! Name: fryed chum tube I only substitute the hook with a tube. The hackle will be partridge instead of grizzly. So nice to be back in! Cheers Sjo.
  17. So sorry I missed my deadline. I've been ill for some days and been sleeping more then being awake, that's why I didn't visit my computer for some time. My chain off evo's is broken now, so sad! Good luck to you all, this is a terrific swap!
  18. i would be very pleased and honoured to join again! Sjo
  19. I got my flies a week ago I think. I thought I posted a message to thank you all but I can't find it anymore. Sorry for that. Now I'll try to find a way to clean up my messagebox! Thanks again, specially the swapmeister!
  20. I still got box 1 & 2 + the extra fly. They are beautifull flies, but they are part off something unique, I will not ever fish any off them, I could not break this chain, connecting us from all over the world. ;-)
  21. Hi all! I think my flies are lost in space :-( I did a rety and will send these out today, they wil need at least four more days though. CHEERS Sjo
  22. My flies are also in! Great ties! Thanks for hosting Kevin!
  23. I'm in! Yow! Ow, ordering the lace would cost me $20 on postage alone. I will go shoping local.
  24. So 13 it is, come on guys! This swapmeister is too considerate to be passed out! I will gladly join a swap like Rockworm proposed with prediscribed ingredients. That will be a blast!
  25. My flies are done, tagged and bagged. Will hit the postoffice today. Sjo
