No, add ... I am joking about my reason for not participating.
In truth, I tie for my fishing. Tying is secondary to fishing. I don't have boxes of flies with rows and rows of the same fly. I carry 4 to 6 of each pattern and I only own two boxes with all my flies in them.
Tying a production run of flies (even if it's only 12) well, it's just not what I do. So,
Thank you for this swap. It was fun, but it proved to me that I am not a "swapper". I'm not totally out. If I see a swap come up for some pattern that I AM interested in, I'll join.
But it's not something I'll be doing every month or so.
