I hate like everything that I missed this swap. I was away on vacation in a spot without internet access. I got the message on my cell phone, but couldn't get logged into FTF on my cell. I even sent Vicrider a message on Facebook, telling him to tell Bob to sign me up. But I guess he didn't get my message. I even had a pattern picked out and everything. But, oh well, better luck next time. That's what I get for going on vacation. Hope you guys have a great swap.

 

Take care

Anybody have a problem with adding BB to the swap?  It means we tie 13 flies.  I'll add him tonight unless some objects.

OK Gang I added Breambuster to the mix so we tie 13 flies and you will not get your own back.

Bob. You misunderstood.

I don't have the materials or know of patterns for this.

i'll take an alternate position only (not asking to be added to the swap) if someone drops out


Friday is my second favorite "f" word. Floccinaucinihilipilification is my first.

Hey Guys, thanks for letting me in. I didn't expect that. But since I'm in, I will be tying the Sulfur Dun CDC Puff.

 

Take care

OK Gang, I think we are set now, Li'l Dave has requested to be removed and I have added Flytire.  I had no idea this swap would be so popular.  I can't wait to see what everybody ties.
