Recommended Posts

smalliefanatic has asked to sit out this round. rich and mel , would you please take his name off the mailing sequence? still getting interest with new tyers, sent David Legg a message,wasn't sure if some of the new players from the material swap would be interested. At present, we have three new tyers. Should be able to work something out.

surprised we haven't heard from rich or mel, the packages were sent out last tuesday.

WOW! You guys are GENEROUS! Got a huge box of flies in the mail!

 

Oh, I can only keep some... right!

 

It came to my office Saturday, but I wasn't in until today to open it. Hard to pick! Tried to get at least one from everybody. Couldn't find a BigDaddyHub in the box, but did keep at least one each from BDH, rich5665, Flyfisher13, cencalfly, SmallieFanatic, and a Gen Mosquito #24. Now to send these off to the secret lab to be analyzed!

 

Barring unforseen problems, the box will be off in the mail tomorrow to.... ha! I'm not supposed to tell!

 

Thanks, ya'll.... it's makes it even more special as tomorrow's my birthday!

As of today, we have the following new tyers for the "mystery swap", c.teeter, bentflyrod

david legg and oldhat. welcome aboard to all, it will be great to see their flies. they come from iowa, michigan, colorado and oregon.We are certainly getting tyers from all over the U.S.A., so the "mystery swap" gets better and better.

 

Have a good one

Is this all closed up or any chance on getting in on the action? Looks way to good to pass up.

Fingers crossed,

Dave

Surprising that rich5665 hasn't posted about the "mystery swap box", he's usually quick to respond.

Hope all is okay. Mel's last post , said he would be mailing the "reverse box "out, this week.

We have ridleyffo as a new tyer, welcome aboard. I expect to be receiving flies from the new tyers very shortly. Will keep you posted.

Had a little wakeup call from mother nature about 4:a.m., this morning. A small earthquake does get ones attention, such is life in californee!!!

Didn't you just have a quake about a week or two back also...It was felt up into Oregon as well. It appears our planet has a sour stomach as of late. Lots of rumbly in the tumbly.

that quake ,last week , was in northern californee, cenrered around eureka. we didn't feel any of that one. the quakes tend to make you realize how small you are. tend to check your shorts out!!!

I've sent messages to rich5665, trouttraveler and AFtier with no feedback from any of them !!!

Has hibernation started, don't have a clue what"s going on, hope all is okay? Both boxes have been sent out about two weeks ago,with very little updates !!! Expected cycle 4 to be humming along.

 

have a good one

Sorry, sent my update via PM!

 

I got the flies Saturday, tieing up my contributions today, and it'll go out on Tuesday!

 

I think I've spent more time at the vice this three-day weekend then the FDA would recommend, since I see caddis emergers burned into the back of my eyelids every time I shut my eyes.

Glad to hear from rich5665 today, he plans to have tne "mystery swap box " on its way. Cycle 4 is starting to roll with both boxes, looking forward to some awesome flies.

Received a some great looking flies from oldhat, very nice variety. bentflyrod had to pull out of the swap, still expecting flies from the new tyers, stay tuned.

mother nature is showing her muscles in southern californee , lots of rain, snow , high winds and within the last couple hours, tornado warnings are being made . This area seems to be feast or famine, latest forecast calls for heavy rains tomorrow and thursday. I guess it wouldn't be a bad idea to bundle up and try to stay dry and warm.

 

have a good one
