Fourth Annual Evolution Swap

Recommended Posts

Five delivered; Seven to go. So far, the USPS is living up to expectations. Here's hoping Canada Post will yet surprise me.

As requested, I will give this year's swappers a "heads up" shortly before posting next year's Evo Swap.

It only took 3 business days for them to get here. We don't do Saturdays. Bravo! Another fabulous collection. Thanks to all the tiers and rockworm for all the quality work done with the presentation. Send an email next year if you are doing it again.

A big thanks Rockworm for putting this together and all the work you do to make it one of the Forum's best.

I have not been on the site in quite some time, actually forgot this set of swap flies was still out there. Late last week I noticed a small package on the counter and ignored it, wasn't expecting anything. Earlier this week I finally opened it and was quite surprised, the quality of flies and the presentation are equally astounding. Well worth the wait, even if I wasn't actually waiting...

 

Thanks for hosting.

I got my box really some time ago but I was not able to log in. Then I was busy with early pension so I forgot. Now I read back and realize I didn't give notice that my box arrived, What a cool swap again! This idea of Bruce takes us to great heights. Thanks for all your sweet tties and special thanks to you Bruce for your patience and your commitment to making this a succes.

 

See you all next year!

Sjo
