I think it has to do with the fact I was trying to use Artificial Materials. The original pattern calls for deer hair. I don't think I have enough time to get materials and then tie up 36. Either way there will be 36 flies finished.

had the same issue with the Clousers...had tied so many for myself, that in mid swap, ran out of yellow and olive bucktail....thankfully, I have an understanding wife who let me make an emergency trip to the fly shop!!

Big Daddy Hub's Streamers arrived today from Kentuky. Nice bunch of Closures, Hub! This make six in hand and two more in the mail. :headbang:

 

 

 

We have had one more drop out due to being too busy meistering other swaps. :dunno: Please if you can not get the flys tied or have other reasons for not completeing the swap, let me know. Do not disappoint the other tiers that have put a lot of energy and effort in this swap. I had to drop out of a classic wet fly swap today due to the inability to concentrate, lack of coordination and shakey hands (not condusive for tieing flys). This is the first swap I have had to drop out of and it bothers me but STUFF does happen and we just need to contact the meister and let them know.

Just finishing up my flies...It was like doing 3 swaps. I have to say it was a test of discipline. I was hosting and had other swaps I entered (swapaholic?) Yes I entered that one also. The one left to do. :yahoo: :yahoo:

 

I will be sending them in the mail soon. Unbelievable but I finished them. First time I had ever taken on doing so many of one kind. So.... thanks. :headbang:

 

I hope they are ok. As you know I am still learning every time I lift the bobbin. :hyst:

I apologize everyone but I have to drop from this one, family commitments and a few other issues have slowed me down. I pm'd deserttrout, to let him know, but have not received a response. August will be the first month that I have not done more than one swap and this will be the first time and hopefully the only time that I have ever dropped out of a swap.
