"mystery box revival"

Recommended Posts

Hopefully all you tyers had a great holiday season with your families and ready for a fantastic new year.

I will shortly be sending the "mystery boxes" {cycle 4} on their way this week. As far as I know, the only address change is will's. If any others, get with me right away. smalltownfisherman will not be in the next cycle, he has a full load going on with schoolwork. he certainly was a key player.

I would think there are some anxious tyers ready to showcase their flies,so Cycle 4 is ready to get launched. cencalfly, I hope you are doing well.

The " reverse mystery swap box" will be tried this cycle, hope its not a problem.

Hey Pat,

 

Have to make a few adjustments in my fishing style but I'm still here and looking forward to the upcoming rounds. :D

 

Took a drive up to Yosemite the other day. Thought you might enjoy a pic.

"mystery swappers". its time to get cycle 4 on the road. hopefully tomorrow or the next day, I will have the boxes on their way. rich and mel, be prepared, there may be some flies landing on your doorsteps.

I would think some of you might be having weather related problems, hope all is okay.

Looking forward to this mystery box arriving. As a first timer, please refresh my memory: what do I do exactly when it gets here.... run for the stream laughing????

mel, when the "mystery box" lands at your doorsteps, expect to find a nice variety of flies for different types of fishing.attached to the box will be the mailing sequence, with the next tyer in line to be AFtier, when ready send the "mystery box" to him.You will have the chance to select any flies you want in the box, then replace those flies with an equal amount of tagged flies.I would suggest about 8 to 10 flies.

I would expect you to be pleasantly surprised with the goodies, rather than rush to the favorite fishing spot laughing. I would suggest you latch onto your flyrod and try out some quality flies. Theres a lot of talent in this swap.

This is the first attempt with the "2 box approach", hope it works out well. the other box is starting at the other end.I would expect you to like the format of this swap,a little different .great group of tyers!!we encourage any interaction.

 

have fun, good to have you aboard, hopefully I answered your questions.

The only trick here.....

 

have your flies tyed and waiting.....

 

 

Pick the "8 to 10" to keep.....drop yours in and mail that box...ASAP!!

 

The quicker the turn around the more travel time we get per month.

 

BOOYAH!!!!!!!

Thanks for the reminder! You guys are just lucky it's cold and snowy here, or I'd try the whole box before picking!!
