Adult Stonefly Swap

Recommended Posts

Do we have a new ETA on this swap? I just went through a lot of my red stimulators and yellow stimulators catching a mess of cutthroats, rainbows, and brookies. Sure would be nice to have some more adult stonefly patterns. :)

 

How many are we missing now? Could you send me what we do have before the end of this week so I can use them on my next trip next week (leaving Thursday)? Otherwise I fear they will just sit in my fly box all winter until next summer.

 

Jimboha!

You will have to wait I am away for business until Friday.

 

Sure. But if you haven't sent them yet, please hang on to them. They won't get here by Wednesday which is the last delivery day before I leave.

 

Thanks.

 

Jimboha!

My flies are the small black stonefly. It is unlabelled since I know who tied it. I included some gifts for some of you. AnnieLLC won the prizes from DJGunther. When you see her flies think about how well you tied at age nine. Look at the clean heads on her flies. Great job Annie.

I stood staring at the envelope on the floor trying to remember what it was. Totally forgot. What a nice surprise, great variety, have to say congrats to Anne for her great fly. The rest weren't too shabby either. lol.:) Unfortunately the season is over. So maybe next year I will be able to tell you how they do.

You're welcome! Gee, though, that kills my swap completion time. That Bull/Brown Trout Streamer Swap was supposed to end 25 May. That makes it almost 4 MONTHS long. But I am happy that you did finally get your streamers. I have been using some and have had good success.

 

Jimboha!
