  1. Thanks Dude! This one will go into my fly tying notebook. YOUR ROCK!!! :headbang:
  2. Professori - I used your stimulator tie while fishing a lake at my nephew's property in Nikiski, AK. It was VERY successful in getting strikes. :yahoo: You gotta send me that receipe and tying instructions!! TTYS!!
  3. I ended up bringing my streamers and found an egg sucking leech kit at Fred Meyers in Soldatna. I tied up a few (unweighted) and will give them a try tomorrow. I was gettng hits today on one of the lakes that holds trout using a stimulator dry.
  4. YOU GUYS ARE KILLING ME !!!! :hyst: BTW ... See you all when I get back from my trip to the Kenai Peninsula. I'm leaving tonight for a week long trip to the Kenai Peninsula, with no time left to tie any flies. (story of my life!) :wallbash: I have a ton of flies with the exception of egg patterns and leeches. What other "normal" patterns could I take with any hope of success?? (Dry or wet) Is it any good to tie droppers, etc....?? :dunno: Thanks gang!!
  5. I also posted this one on the Steelhead Salmon forum but thought I might get a quicker reply here ...

  6. Looks like a nice clean tie! My skill set doesn't quite reach that level, but I'm looking forward to getting there!!

  8. Agreed! I use a midge or another dropper ocassionally and the results can be pretty cool!! The dry fly acts like a strike indicator as well as for it's intended purpose. Those of you who haven't should give it a try!! :headbang:
  9. Man, I gotta get up that way!! I wonder what it's like up in the Shaver Lake area or up by Sierra Summit?? There was zero water last year and some of the toughest fishing conditions I've EVER seen up there!!
  10. professori's flies are on their way to Canada as of this morning!
  11. All the envelopes hit the mailbox last night with the exception of Gary's which I will have to take directly to the post office as soon as I can spare some time in the next day or so. Two of our swappers bailed without any notification (see the list on pages 1 or 6), unfortunately that does happen in these swaps occasionally. I look forward to hearing back from you guys when your flies get to you and having some of you guys back when I host a dry fly swap later this summer!! You guys made this a very memorable swap for me. It was a pleasure hosting it for you guys!!!!
  12. All of the flies have been divided and everyone received an extra one thanks to cencalfly. He tossed in a nice looking dropper for each of you that should help slay 'em! When I finished getting everyone's flies sorted, I was again amazed at the quality of what each of you have tyed. You guys flat ROCK!! :headbang: I thank each of you for the extras. I won't need to add to my dry fly box for a few trips!! You are all a credit to the forum and I hope you enjoy the flies that each of you have tyed! I will post later in the summer for another dry fly swap and if I do, I will be sure to add a fly or two for any of you who join in. I'll try to get these in the mail by Monday AM. professori - Yours will take an extra day or two to get out as I need to hit the post office in person. Hope you don;t mind the slight delay! Holler when you get your flies and please let me now if any of you don't see them in an appropriate amount of time.
  13. Woo Hoo! :yahoo: Frank's flies came in last night and they look awesome! Nice job Frank!! Here's where we stand as of today... cencalfly - 12 royal trude - Flies Received 3) jeepclown - sz 14 Olive Boufaces - Flies Received 4) Pat Carroll - morman girl streamer - Flies Received 5) professori - hoppers - size 12 - Flies Received 6) bigdewy - Stayner Ducktail - Flies Received 7) MAWitter - marabou streamer - Not heard from after several attempts to contact (I think he's going to be a no show) 8) spike188 - Stimulator or parachute ant - Flies Received 9) DrVette - dead chickens - Flies Received 10) Student4evr - Parachute ant - Flies Received 11) Dezod - 18 or 20 parachute BWO - Flies Received 12) deserttrout - Truckee River Special - Flies Received 13) coreycs - Pink Scudlitoris - Addy Sent - no response to my PM asking for an update on the status of his flies I'm going to give coreycs one more day to reply and send him another PM as well. If I don't hear back by tonight, I'm going to consider him a no-show as well and get the the flies out to you guys - agreed? Just as an FYI ... anyone who does not complete a swap without good cause is reported to the forum admins as such and they are usually banned from future swaps. I truly want to thank all of you who have made a diligent effort to hold to the rules of the swap. You make this forum what it is!!
  14. Thanks for the replies guys, as well as for the heads up Frank! A couple of swaps ago, we had one guy who actually mailed mail the flies to himself instead of the swapmeister!! DOH!! :wallbash: I'm in no rush, as I don't go on vacation until July 3, so I think we'll have plenty of time to get this one completed. I'll keep you all posted as to the progress! :headbang:
  15. I checked mail this morning and unfortunately no more flies were in the mail. One day left, but no mail on Sunday, so ... Here are the flies I have in hand as of this morning ... cencalfly - 12 royal trude - Flies Received 3) jeepclown - sz 14 Olive Boufaces - Flies Received 4) Pat Carroll - morman girl streamer - Flies Received 5) professori - hoppers - size 12 - Flies Received 6) bigdewy - Stayner Ducktail - Flies Received 7) MAWitter - marabou streamer - Not heard from after several attempts to contact (I think he's going to be a no show) 8) spike188 - Stimulator or parachute ant - Flies Received 9) DrVette - dead chickens - Flies Received 10) Student4evr - Parachute ant - Flies Received 11) Dezod - 18 or 20 parachute BWO - Flies Received 12) deserttrout - Truckee River Special - Flies Received 13) coreycs - Pink Scudlitoris - Addy Sent So, there we have it. My past experience has shown that the USPS will sometimes take thier sweet time and if postage is an issue, they also take thier time getting them back to the original sender. If it's OK with you guys, I'll wait an extra day, or two, in case our postal system has been the cause for t e delay. I'll post again if anything changes. Let me know your thoughts about the short delay. Thanks guys!!
