Sorry guys and girls.

swap cancelled.

need to make a few other things a priority. And i don't want another repeat of no. 2. Where it has been nearly 2 months since the 'mail by date' and flies still haven't been seen by participants.


sorry to disappoint.

I'll get in with a one mallard shrimp. I'd also be willing to receive flies stateside like we had in the first swap if you want.

I'll sit this one out. Closing in on two months past mail due date and still waiting to see some deceivers.

I'm in. Studying shrimp patterns right now. Definitely like the shrimp ties better than the crabs I've attempted so far.
