Ok, thought I was done with swaps for a while cuz I wuz getting a bit crabby over hearing lame azz excuses why tiers were wanting more time to get their flies done etc. etc. but....

Wife says I'm crabby all the time so this seems appropriate for me.

What's the due date for this one?

Unfortunately I'm going have to sit this one out. Looks like it could be a great swap but I'm currently out of the country and don't know if I'll have time to get to them when I get back. Please post pics of the set though, I'd live to see what everyone ties

So it's confirmed...we've got six crabby tiers, correct? I'll work on seven or eight crabs anyway.

Started on my eyes last night and they're ready to go.
