Adult Stonefly Swap

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know MTFlyJunkie or ATroutBum2 to contact them tosee if they have a problem?

 

No, I don't. Clearly they have some kind of issue for being a week and half behind without any notification.

 

Sorry to sound so callous. I've got a week-long backpacking/fishing expedition in the Sawtooth Mountains in Idaho next week. I guess I'll be going without the Stoneflies... I suppose rather than complaining I should have mentioned it earlier. Not much we can do about it now.

 

Jimboha!

 

PS All the late nights getting prepped have left me grumpy. Sorry.

This is starting to be a problem with swaps again. :angry: If my granddaughter can be responsible enough to get her flies in on time, adults should be able to get them there as well. I'm saying divide them up and get them in the mail. If the others arrive mark them "return to sender". You can have any extras for hosting or donate them to a fly fishing charity.

Sorry for my absence guys, I've been out of town since the due date for this swap. I spoke with MTFlyjunkie and he said he was moving and his flies would be in the mail, but that was over 10 days ago now & if they haven't arrived yet I'm assuming they weren't sent. The other swapper I tried to reach but was unsuccessful. I'm happy with the flies being mailed out as is, if everyone is okay with that. There's still a half decent prize for the best stonefly...

 

No hard feelings right...it's summertime afterall.

Yeah, I agree. I've hosted one swap and was mildly chastised for being too much of a swap-nazi (my words for effect) when I said in effect "on time, no exceptions".

 

It's really tough, though, as life does happen and you want to include as many swappers as you can. However, I don't think it unreasonable to move on quickly if the people won't reply to the SM's attempts to find out what's happening. I can think of many scenarios for this to happen and in almost all of them it seems best to just move on. </philosophical rhetoric>

 

In any case, I'm going to catch a lot of fish and I will try to report back on which flies work.

 

Jimboha!

OK Lazybugger's flies are coming from New Zealand. Got to wait for them.

Oh, I can't wait to hear this Rock Hill postal story, flies going to New Zealand, Hong Kong, Canada and Sacramento :lol: :lol: :lol:

Bob it will be a mystery wrapped up in an enigma covered with hyperbole. Or something close. Cencal gave me a tracking number, he had some life issues and I said you all could wait. They are in the mail. Lets see what happens with Lazy's flies in the meanwhile.

Lol I am happy to tie up some more and send them express track n trace just in case ... the cost does not bother me in the slightest and when / if the others arrive someone can have some freebies ... lol only slightly annoying thing is I was rather proud of the ones I tied Haha ... will just have to mAke sure this set is better ... besides I don't feel like people getting annoyed or giving us kiwis a bad name because the post man sucks
