  1. Damn man, will you ever get over 2020. Driven from your house. Return only to be flooded again. Then you're under the weather to boot. This is 2021. Get back in the game man.
  2. Damn dfd, you're cutting it close. Guess we'll hear about a new member of the fishing fraternity soon. Mine always came at night so I never had to be chased down on the river like a friend of mine.
  3. I've held off offering these in hopes some miracle would occur and I could actually use them. Ain't gonna happen so... Orvis Silver Sonic waders. Top of the line when I bought them. They've been wet to the knee twice in the White River's clean water in AR. They are a model with extra straps I never figured out so they can be worn as chest waders or wading pants and have waterproof pouch for license and pouch for extras. I'll ship these for $150. The size is XXLSH which means normal inseam but extra belly room. Just the thing to go with these waders is a pair of size 12 Korker's brand new. I had Orvis lace boots and gave them to a relative since I wanted the BOA lace system and interchangeable rubber and felt soles. These have never been in the water. Having packaged them and checked on shipping already I will sell them for $125 shipped CONUS. As always paypal preferred but checks are fine. Will send to established board members on receipt of check.
  4. Darrell, yours are here. Will start the collection now.
  5. Mine are in route via Fishin' Bob Nelson. In a hurry to get them out I packaged them and addressed them to Fishin'Bob. After checking to make sure I wasn't sending them late I realized my screw up and got hold of Bob. He is going to route up the coast and get them to you, hopefully in time. Damn senior moments.
  6. Firehole tungsten beads? Firehole jig hooks. Let me know what your next swap is going to be and I'll start pre-tying. Looking forward to these and will work for panfish I'm sure and maybe even get to trout water later this year. By the way, one of the contributors to our Santa Swap with packages for everybody in swap was Mel's https://thebluegillbugshop.com/pages/fly-tying-hooks who now has in stock the longer shanked jig hooks. One of my few complaints has always been the short shanks on the 60 degree jig hooks and I'm going to order some of these to check them out.
  7. Personally I hate doing anymore than 12 swappers at a time but what I would rather do is 12 swappers but two different flies. If you want to tie 20 or 24 the same but my mind goes dead by about 6 and I have to do something different and come back to the original the next day. I might tie 50 flies over 5 days but only 12 will be the swap flies spread out.
  8. Actually went with wife, nephew in wheel chair and 9 year old niece to an access on Washita River where it comes out of Foss Lake. There will be a time when the creek is full with running white bass heading north for spawn and figured they'd be there since trees are budding but nothing. Couple of other guys trying and not a bite between us. Maybe Monday.
  9. Hey man, I'll take those lashes if I get to keep the yarn. A guy gifted me several versions of 477 subs along with a couple of yards of the real thing. Some day I'm going to put some wire on a bobbin and tie up that real 477 on some good barbless hooks and sell those on ebay for $10 a fly. 'Course the only place they're special is a chalk stream in England.
  10. Gotcha guys and Rich, I don't think the Aussies want to hear a lot about Trump flies. This doesn't mean the swap is full, just all the numbers I put up for now.
  11. Whereas I am known to do something different in swaps and whereas there will be plenty of hoppers and poppers to fill our panfish boxes (and hopefully a Cicada or two) I took a different route on a trout favorite with a body mod. No reason this won't hold up to a few selective big 'gills if that's your pleasure but here is my guaranteed to float Renegade.
  12. Can definitely do that Tom. A max of 3 flies should be good. Don't want to overwhelm the Aussies with good American vise products.
  13. Except good feelings and a thank you from down under. I will copy my message from the "I miss swaps" posts from Li'l Dave. "To board members who have been cyber friends with Li'l Dave for many years now I'd like to propose we outfit Dave and his Down Under friends with some real American flies to get his Aussie fish confused. I know he like crabs, bendbacks, salt water flies. I don't know what shank back flies are (bend back?) and as for tube flies I sold all my tube fly accessories but have some left from swaps I'll never get wet. I do have some crabs and saltwater streamers on hand I would put in.. Here's the deal. You send me a fly or two between now and April 16th and I'll package them up and send them to Dave on my dime. He has overpaid me on every Christmas swap and included great boxes so I can give back some of that and let him know the Yankees love their Down Under Friends. Some of the flies should be able to go in regular envelopes and save on shipping cost to me."

I am going to post this under a new heading of the "Swap you won't get anything back" and see what we can drum up.

  15. Though I've only seen it in videos but I'd love to be on a lake when the plane flies over and shits out a stream of trout. Always amazed me that they could do this and most of the trout seemed to make it. High mountain lakes are one of the places I've never had a chance to fish but it would have to be fun to fish water as clear as the gin I used to drink and watch the effects of your fly on the fish.
