I truly appreciate the compliment and the invite, but I also, truly can't join a swap.

Well, when we finish it in April you are going to get some flies, no matter what. Just trying to acknowledge all you do for this place and leadership you do for me. All of us can be a stupid, Mr. Dumas at times, and I appreciate what you do and the Patience you have with me and others. You know what I will say next...

While I haven't chased carp with my fly rod yet I was thinking mine might work for them, one of the reasons for the salmon hooks, the other is cause I got way to many of them way to cheap recently.

There are some very talented people here, and then there's me, speaking of the talented though Eastern Fly showed me what he has planned for the bugger swap and it will be amazing.

Thought I was in the early group but don't see my name so I'll take last spot. Prefer it stays at 12 but will tie some extras just in case. I am tying a version of the ugly nymph Smallie Hunter says is an "ugly killer" on trout. I know it will be gobbled by 'gills for sure.
