I just got my flies in last night. This is my first swap and I’ll certainly be in more. Some of you are true artists with unbelievable skill; it makes me feel bad for sending the trash ties I made.

 

I have a stone that has no toe tag (there is a loose toe tag with “W. Carp” on in so I’ll assume that’s who tied it). It is weaved with black and dark brown; it’s an amazing job! You’ve inspired me to practice weaving!

 

The Steelhead Hammer by Tdeyette is great; I’ve never seen this pattern before! I’m going to look for that pattern.

 

Hell, all of these flies are great.

 

Thanks for all the fantastic ties everyone!

 

S/F,

 

Bob

 

PS: I’ve been looking all over the house for my green fly box. I had sent it with my flies and was returned last night. It sucks getting old: no memory, eyesight shot (have to use 3x power reading glasses to tie), three-mile run exceeds 27 minutes, etc... Oh well, I guess it’s better than the alternative.

Bob,

 

Happens to us all, my friend.... Look on the bright side: You can still run the 3-miler :)

 

Cheers!

I must say that it's a very cool collection of flies! I would feel very confident taking this bunch out on the water! Excellent ties by everyone involved in the swap!

Glad the flies are starting to arrive to everyone. If you guys like Brents woven stonefly (and who doesn't ;) ) then keep your eyes open for the Feb issue of Hatches, I think you'll like what's in it ;)
