  1. I don't think it should. It is just securing/strengthening the material. The same thing it does to the head.
  2. Well, I think I have three or four hanging around. Some of my stuff is still in boxes from the water leak. Tying an black ant with what I've got...
  3. Toe Tags have your screen name and the name of the fly. Welcome to swapping, hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
  4. Two times the fun, I have just the pattern for this. I'm in! 😎
  5. Please don't bother about the postage, several were a few cents short. It is not going to break me and it sort of makes up for being late.😎
  6. As a Swapmeister I find the use of small plastic zip lock bags to be a problem when resending flies. Not everyone sends their flies in the same size or shape box. I get big ones, round ones, ones with dividers and sometimes the flies in bags don't fit. If I have to scrunch up the bag to get it in the box, it sort of defeats the purpose. I think having the recipe on the toe tag is nice, but they take a lot of space, especially when inside a little baggie. If you want to share the pattern information, it could be posted on the topic thread at the end of the swap.
  7. I would be willing to be the US Host for a swap, Everyone could send their flies to me, I would send one package to Li'l Dave. He could sort and send one package back to me and I could forward them to everyone that joined from the US. If there were Aussie swappers they could just send the flies to Dave.
  8. Thanks to all for your patience, over the roar of four dryers and a de-humidifier I managed to get everything sorted and off to the PO. Flies should all be arriving next week.
  9. This year just keeps getting better and better. After living in a hotel for three and a half months while they repaired our house from a broken water line followed by two break-ins we finally moved home. Yesterday I was getting ready to sort and mail when our new kitchen was flooded from our new dishwasher. So now I am dealing with the contractor and the plumber. I will do my best to get these out tomorrow. Thanks for your understanding. No one hates being late more than me.
  10. Steve's flies arrived and I am getting ready to sort. I have been under the weather for the last couple of days or it would have been done earlier. Should get to the PO tomorrow.
  11. atxdiscgolfer's flies arrived yeasteday. I didn't get to the mailbox until this evening, great little buzzers will make a nice dropper under some of the dry flies.
  12. This is why we no longer have international swappers, over $30.00 for some to swap. Time for Washington to realize the Post Office is a service not a business. Services are supposed to cost money. No one says, "Geez the Army lost 6 Billion dollars last year."
  13. Ok Steve, you are sentenced to 50 lashes with Chadwicks 477 yarn!!
  14. JohnW's flies arrived over the weekend. Waiting on two sets.
