Recommended Posts

I have not yet had my mind on tying.

It will come soon. Its to be savored as the next bit of fun sufficiently after bird season, so as not to crowd.

:)

X2 for me.

PA grouse closes on Jan 26th.

Our deadline is March?

Just to refresh everyone's memory on the timeline:

- Commitment deadline - Saturday, January 19th (this is when people need to commit to tying and declare what they are tying).

- Completion deadline - Flies should be completed and in the mail to me by March 1st.  I'll PM the participants my mailing address.  Flies will be mailed to the tiers as soon as possible after they have all be received.

How do you folks feel about letting a guy new to UJ who enjoys sporting clays and still hasn't harvested any game but who knows his way around a vise join the swap?

Welcome Rich!  I bet you are the first person to have his first post in the FF area.

As for my fly, if I must declare, it will be the Herter's bastard midge.

Looks like the motion is approved.

There goes the grading curve on this swap, it just got steeper :down:

I guess that figures, considering I run a fly shop  =)

Thanks.  I'll be tying Mercer's Z-Wing Caddis, tied with turkey feathers I've collected off the ground.   =)

Tough way to make a living. This interweb thing does not help.   :(

The best way to retire a millionaire from the fly fishing industry is to start with 2 million.  =)

We have a web presence.  It becomes a service industry instead of just a retail shop.

So what are looking at for participants?  I think it's around 15 or 16 people plus a fly or two for Brad and maybe an extra tossed in for the organizer of the whole mess, so around 20 flies about right?

I have my twenty ready to go, I just need an address.  Be gentle I am still learning, but I think they will catch fish just fine.
