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.

Wife reported, tonight, that my spiders are waiting for me at home.  The package arrived.  

Thanks again for hosting, Add.  I hope you continue to get better and stronger than ever.
