Fourth Annual Evolution Swap

Recommended Posts

bertgwen's flies washed up with today's mail. Some nicely-tyed Deep Fry'ed Turkeys. Did you decide to add weight to them?

Blane's Grilled Possums hit my mailbox today. An interesting pattern and well-tyed. It looks like I will wrap up this swap as soon as I receive Sjo's flies. If professori doesn't communicate with us real soon I will take his place and see what I can do with his pattern.

Status update:

 

I have received 11 sets of flies and I believe Sjo's flies are in the mail. Since I have not heard from professori I will step in and tye some flies using his recipe. Hopefully I will have your Evo14 sets in the mail sometime next week.

I have been waiting with bated breath (Yes, even flyfishers use bate sometimes) for Sjo's flies to land. The mail just arrived and no flies were delivered. So we will all have to wait a bit more. I will be away for a week or so and will be out of touch with my computer. Hopefully Sjo's flies will be here when I return so we can wrap up this swap.

I am still waiting for Sjo"s flies. He sent me a PM saying he was just out of the hospital and his flies would be on their way ASAP.

My tubes were in the post the 22nd of August!! They are not too big, at least not compared to a 4xl streamer hook. Are they still not in? Should I rety them? My God, being very late because I fell ill and got into hospital is one thing, but then also the package getting lost in space, that is too much.

 

What shall I do Guys? Rety or withdraw?

Sjo- Your flies have not yet arrived, but if I remember correctly they were slow last year as well. Although I am anxious to wrap this swap up I would also like to send out completed Evo Sets. Lets see how the other swap members feel.

Great news everyone- Sjo's flies have arrived! When you see them I think you will agree they were worth the wait. Now I need a night or two to put your boxes together. So I expect they will hit the mail Wednesday.
