  2. I got mine yesterday which is amazingly quick. Great ties everyone, it was an honour participating in this one! Sjo
  3. I'm in if you take continental tiers. We'd have to powwow because I can't buy American stamps over here in Europe. Extra flies for compensation of the costs you must make to send the flies back to me, or some material, or paypal? I'd like to ty CdC parachutes. Sjo
  4. If you take continental tyers I'd like to be in. We would have to work something out to compensate you for the postage because I can't buy American stamps in Europe. Maybe Paypal, or extra flies or some material? I'd like to do black whooly buggers if I'm in. Sjo

  9. Sorry to react so late. My daughter had a lawsuit against her about non-competition clausules in the contract she had with her former boss. This took unexpected much time and energy from me. I will not be able to make it for the due date, but I can send them out end off the week. Then they wil take between 6 and 10 days to reach the swapmeister. I will then give the tyingreceipts! Sorry again. Sjo
  10. Still nothing from Europe? Over here in the Netherlands I hosted a swap with 10 guys and only 7 packets made it. It really spoils much off the fun! I hope my flies will arrive shortly! Grtzzz... Sjo
  11. I would like to be in. I got a DVD from Mr Nemes and I will search it for a pattern. That is if you take European tiers. I can't buy stamps for return postage, so we must work something out regarding a compensation for you! Sjo
  12. Thanks Mark, glad they made it at last! Sjo
  13. My fly must still be in transit.... Grtzzz... Sjo
  14. I'm in, Sandfly is my theme (Ryacophila). Grtzzz... Sjo
  15. I like participating in Swaps because there's allways the challenge of new ideas or techniques. Some swaps are based on materials I never used, others on techniques I never used. So I learn alot.
  16. I think Horseshoes made this one!
  17. I'd very much like to be in this one, that is if you take European tiers. Sjo

  22. Following your advice I went streamerfishing for Pike twice. Feeling much better indeed :yahoo: In the mean time our polders froze up and the fishing definetely ended. Coming weekend the temprature will rise again. We'll just have to wait and see. Sjo
  23. Hook#4 Knapak Czech nymph Lead wire Abdomen: underbody yellow Fly rite dubbing, overlaid with 4 Peacock herls over the back. Overbody made off a small strip off the sent material, which was a strip that sticks only to itself. The ribbing is a gold thread. Thorax: Golden olive dubbing overlaid with a bleached Hungarian Partridge feather, overlaid with the strip of material and tinted on the back of the abdomen and the torax with a waterproof Brown Pantone felt pen. The back off the fly is lacquered. It's a variaton off the Amonite Nympfh from Steve Thornton, UK. Grtzzz... Sjo NB My adress has changed permanently to the Psychiatric ward of The University Clinic Maastricht. Please don't send the flies back to my house, because my wife could open them. She had very much trouble getting our dog out of the curtains. :shocking:
