"mystery box revival"

Recommended Posts

Uhhhh a slight problem guys..........I'm not in this swap....and the Mystery box just showed up on my door.

Pat around the holidays you sent me an invite to this round and I decided to sit out....but now my name is on the list. So I'm just confused. I guess I'll just send it on to Frank since his name is next.

Just got a PM from Jim, Cycle 5, box 2 (the blue one) wsa dropped in the mail this afternoon...Sorry, just didn't think about posting...my bad....Sorry Jim.

 

 

With that said...the flies in the boxes get better every cycle. IT's wonderful to see how tiers are progressing...some are making huge leaps and bounds and really honing thier skills! Great work!

As I expected, the next cycle is moving right along.

I didn't really explain my reason for stepping aside as meister. I had a few things going on .

My wife and I are both involved with the local cancer drive called, Race For The Cure, that is ready to happen this weekend. She is on the Cancer Survivors Committee, and I am the Luminaria Chairman. We are first timers at this, so its been quite an experience. My wife has been on chemo for aver 18 months, she recently started taking a stronger dose of chemo. Its hit her pretty hard, she still maintains her 'KISS ASS ' attitude in her fight, so "MY HERO" , is giving it a great shot. If you are in to praying, it would be most welcomed.

The 'mystery swap" is in good hands and keeps getting more better and more better, I still check things out.

I suspect the third box may be going to AFtier, if so, I think the charity box may be with it.

 

Have a good one

Pat

Is it possible for a new guy to get in on this? I am only new here. I've tied flies for 20+ years and have taught basic tying classes at three different shops. I'm not a fly tying artist but they fish well and look pretty good to boot.

 

I'd be more than happy to talk with someone on the phone, give out my info., references??? I added info in my sig line that speaks to me being in the Gunmaker's Artist Guild. Ethics issues can get you booted out which is no small thing, (i.e. I'm not trying to hide behind a screen name here), just would like to get in on what sounds like a cool swap.

Thanks and Let me know,

Trez Hensley

Thanks for the info. I used to do swaps on another site before I took a 4 year break from tying (my family needed me to take an obsession break :) ), but this is the first try here. I ran a materials box swap that worked great the first two times around but alas it was "lost in the mail" or someone decided to keep it.... That's why I made the ethics / references comments. A few dishonest folks can really ruin a good time.....

Whoever is running the show could you please let me know what you want me to do with the box. I presume that I should just send it to AFtier, but I would like to be sure.

Hey smalllie, I thought Rich was running this one. He hasn't been logged on since May 10th so I don't know what's up. I sent him a pm telling him that I would recommend that you send it to the next person in line. So, please send it to the next person on the list. pm me your email and I'll paypal you the shipping cost plus their fee.

Please forward the box on and I'll take your name off the list.

Sorry everyone, been really busy over the last month.

 

Smallie PM me with the cost of shipping and I'll get it back to you.

 

Jim thanks for offering to assist, but you really shouldn't have to.
