  1. Thanks mate. Appreciate the thought Anyway.... I'm a bit out of practice with my troutie stuff at the moment....
  2. Two totally different types of fishing for this lot....
  3. Still around. We're a big country Mike but yes, the fires, floods etc have been pretty hectic over the last 18 months or so.. most recently floods.... But We're doing ok... internally we havent been hit so hard by the 'other big issue' @WWKimba flylife does offer swaps, however the organisation and variety generally has nothing on what we can get out of here when the forum is going well. I have generally used paypal for most of my swaps and those other swappers who have sent US dollars in swaps I've hosted has generally meant I have a few dollars lying around to put in an envelope.... @MuskyFlyGuy... I like that idea. I'll have to see how I go.... PS... first tubes... and a couple of velcro crabs from the vise today (for you @vicrider
  4. Hi all. Just checking in to say I'm around.... haven't obviously participated in swaps for a while.... Postage between Australia and US has become quite hit and miss in the kast 12 months.... Just in case though.... would love for those that know me and have friended me on Faceless book to track me down if they think there is something i might be interested in. Have been on a bit of a swing fly / shank fly kick of late, and tubes have also started to peak my interest. Take care everyone.
  5. I was fishing size 6 firehole streamer hooks (811). They're a great hook but after about half a dozen or so they started to get the better of it.
  6. Thanks mate, Goes by the name of Sooty Grunter. The gold and bronze hues on these guys are spectacular and they are a fantastic tropical freshwater target here in Australia.
  7. Yeah Mike. They fight hard and dirty. Sooty grunter... fantastic fun. Fight is very similar to mangrove snapper.
  8. A couple of bunnies from last night.... and one of the results from this morning.
  9. So this morning not so much of a swap fly. BUT a swap material. The bug I posted yesterday in January flies from the view using the Llama fur dubbing accounted for a couple of sooty grunter.
  10. Hi all. As part of the 2018 Christmas swap, somehow I ended up with some Llama dubbing..... finally ties something up with it tonight.... hopefully get wet tomorrow.
  11. A pink shrimp from a shrimp swap? Or a secret Santa present from past years? Big apologies to the tyer, because I can't remember who you are. It's barramundi closed season at the moment so we were trying to avoid them with small flies.... Didn't really work But this shrimp and another brown hackled whistler style fly (with plastic bead chain, and from another swap?) got eats from indopacific tarpon, giant herring (ladyfish) and barramundi.
  12. Thanks all, and Nick. We're well safe from the fires here, thankfully. And there was even a bit of Christmas rain in a few areas that have been battling for months. We're lucky more people haven't died and I'm thankful for that.
  13. You definitely did. I have been slack in the past re posting pics of the results of my Christmas goodies from these swaps. But will do my best.
