  1. Still on a tube kick... Last night's effort and this morning's result
  2. I'll let you know when I see it everyone. There are so many flies over the years that i have received, and not yet fished. But some I have.... There was a black shrimpy thing from a flats swap that got a cool ozzie tarpon... and a Shannon's streamer from Rich netted me one of my first ever sight cast bream. Woolly buggers from another have caught numerous tarpon and sooty grunter...... The last Christmas swap flies I received are in a box that head with me every chance I get, but condition's haven't been quite right.... And I found a couple of tubes that will get fished sooner rather than later too. Thanks again. Much love everyone.
  3. Its from the 'daylight company' i think. Available at hardwarw stores, amazon or from nail supply stores.
  4. Li’l Dave,

    Nice to see you posting. 

  5. These are tied on size 2 mustad c70sd Medium brass dumbells Shell pink thread Congo hair (pink, caddis tan) Sandcrab dub (only on the tan, the pink body is a brush of pink congo hair) Arctic snow (hot orange) Loco legs Marabou
  6. Have done a bit this year.... it's hard to keep it tidy though....
  7. This morning's efforts.... all size 2, not so heavy, perfect for the local skinny water....
  8. Thank you. Thats all way too much *blush*
  9. Thanks mate. Appreciate the thought Anyway.... I'm a bit out of practice with my troutie stuff at the moment....
  10. Two totally different types of fishing for this lot....
  11. Still around. We're a big country Mike but yes, the fires, floods etc have been pretty hectic over the last 18 months or so.. most recently floods.... But We're doing ok... internally we havent been hit so hard by the 'other big issue' @WWKimba flylife does offer swaps, however the organisation and variety generally has nothing on what we can get out of here when the forum is going well. I have generally used paypal for most of my swaps and those other swappers who have sent US dollars in swaps I've hosted has generally meant I have a few dollars lying around to put in an envelope.... @MuskyFlyGuy... I like that idea. I'll have to see how I go.... PS... first tubes... and a couple of velcro crabs from the vise today (for you @vicrider
  12. Hi all. Just checking in to say I'm around.... haven't obviously participated in swaps for a while.... Postage between Australia and US has become quite hit and miss in the kast 12 months.... Just in case though.... would love for those that know me and have friended me on Faceless book to track me down if they think there is something i might be interested in. Have been on a bit of a swing fly / shank fly kick of late, and tubes have also started to peak my interest. Take care everyone.
  13. I was fishing size 6 firehole streamer hooks (811). They're a great hook but after about half a dozen or so they started to get the better of it.
  14. Thanks mate, Goes by the name of Sooty Grunter. The gold and bronze hues on these guys are spectacular and they are a fantastic tropical freshwater target here in Australia.
