  1. Here are the flies from the massively successful pet hair swap. I just want to say that this is the best swap I've ever been in. Everyone made the extra effort and the creativity of these flies were incredible. The pics don't do them justice. For some reason I'm having some trouble uploading the pics, so I will post them as I get them. Dr Vette, cat hair and snake skin. Amazing amazing fly. The picture does not do it justice Shoebop's Beagle Bugger My Rocky Dog Caddis, dubbed with Brittany Spaniel fur Mybadhabits atxdiscgolfer natedubay steiner saltybum riffleriversteelheadslayer
  2. I've been meaning to post pics but now I'm working 50+ hours a week with a one year old daughter, buying a house, playing in a band, tying, fishing, and playing soccer. And I wonder why I can't find any time haha. I plan on posting pics of all the flies!
  3. Good to hear guys! Dr vette's fly was really the outstanding one in the bunch. Even my wife was amazed by it and she usually rolls her eyes at my tying obsession. Thanks Dr vette!!
  4. That and a jimmy legs are my go-to nymphs! I'm glad it worked for you!
  5. Okay gentlemen, flies are in the mail! Was that the purple flashback copper john? I cant remember
  6. Steiners flies have arrived and I have them all sorted! This weekend I will try to put up pictures and update the tyers and pets, and I'll ship them on Monday. This swap far exceeded my expectations.
  7. Well ,since the due date is past, SSC is out of luck. Steiner is in! I'll PM you my address
  8. Okay, I'm back from Wisconsin. I got mybadhabits flies. I have yet to hear from SSC. I'm going to give him two days and then I'll consider him a no-show. Extras will go to project healing waters. And thank you guys for your support. My grandpa died after battling pretty severe and rapid onset Alzheimer's disease. We have a very widespread danish family, and everyone came out of the woodwork for the funeral. It ended up being quite a bit of fun. And I brought my 3 at and knocked the sunfish dead on the lake we were staying at.
  9. You'll have to ask them. They're still within the due date. And speaking of due dates, due to a death in the family I'll be spending this next week in Wisconsin. So the flies may go out late. For those of you who haven't shipped yet my address is Travis Bille 1355 flamingo ct unit a Mckinleyville, CA 95519
  10. This are amazing flies. I've been anxious to get them all week and they did not disappoint.
  11. Got Dr vette's flies today! So far I think they are the most creative flies I've seen thus far. You guys will like them. He also sent some supplies in case someone wants to try to tie them for themselves. If you want some of these, let me know
  12. I will let you know asap. I'm heading out of town tomorrow so I might not get them until Monday, so don't fret if you don't hear anything
  13. Okay, I got Riffle and Nate's flies. These are looking amazing! This has turned out better than I ever could have imagined!
  14. Haha it isn't actually harper, just the same type of dog
  15. Awesome! Harper, from that post, is a Brittany spaniel. You'll all be getting flies kind of made from a runner up haha
  16. Okay, I got saltybum's st bernard flies in the mail. They look awesome! He also donated A TON of flies to project healing waters. Thank you!
  17. How are they coming along everybody? I have one set so far.
  18. Pretty much the only time I don't listen to music is when I fish, surprisingly enough. On a rare occasion I will bring my ipod when I fish a lake from my pontoon, but even that's pretty rare. however, I do have a few songs that I ALWAYS listen to on the way to fish. 1. "Catalina" by Descendents 2. "Wynona's Big Brown Beaver" by Primus 3. And if I'm going steelhead fishing, I always listen to the album Brothers in Arms by Dire Straits. With songs like "Sultans of Swing" and "Down to the Waterline", it's the perfect soundtrack.
  19. Since it sounds like people are sending extra flies, I think I might donate them. I am working on a box of flies for Project Healing Waters, so I figured I would throw the extras in there. Let me know if you have any objections.
  20. I'll save you a spot. Man, we might already have 2.0 filled!
  21. I'm going to keep it at nine so there is no confusion with changing numbers. But I am savings spots in the next pet hair swap that im planning on doing, preference goes to people that wanted in on this one and didn't make it. Margaret Ann, I will save you a spot next time
