Monthly Swappers please read...
Just for laughs thought I'd mention they just had weather warning on TV again. We're in an area that has Tornado Watch tonight and winter storm warning tomorrow night. Ain't that grand. We're out of the bulk of it though so no sweat.
Anyway, I wanted to bring up again that this month is the last for the monthly swap. No December swap. You'll have to wait until you open the Santa Surprise boxes. I picked up a couple of boxes today for swap but had note there was items that wouldn't fit in box so maybe Monday. Joseph Russell came thru with usual great nymphs and Crackleback has an interesting tie. My mis-diagnosis would think it's a Klinkhammer hook, a tight grey dubbed body and a parachute with white stem that appears to be a hair-achute fly. He also included an extra for me that is one of those Nemo type deer hair ties with Nemo shape, 2 fins on both sides, full length dorsal fin of herl, and fantastic tail of Peacock. Something that could never come off my vise in a dozen years. Thank you so much for that. I'll get pics of it when all flies are in.
Okay, I'll take orders for next year's swap on this thread. All people who stuck in for the whole year are guaranteed a spot if they choose. Others can sign in and will fill in after this year's swappers decide. Next year will be 11 months also with no December flies and I won't set a deadline (which didn't work) except flies IN in the month called for. I'll work out the monthly ties pretty much based on this years but I'll drift around the country and try to pick flies that are the hot fly in certain areas at that time of year.
