I hardly call that a hand slapping. It was in response to colors of others' flies, hoping they would get their flies in so they would get to see their flies sooner. You, my friend are waaaayyyy toooo sensitive! smile

Anyway, don't impose facts on my conversations. They have no place there.
I had that wonderful opportunity to appear beat upon and offended, make you feel bad, and now you've gone and ruined it. (Hmm, maybe I can milk this one...) grin

And I am not sensitive.
When I was a kid we were so poor that my dad, a cabinetmaker, made all our bedsheets himself, out of old scraps of sandpaper; and our underwear, too. Accustomed to it, I still do that.

Mine are on the way?

Huh.

Am I being referenced because I get done early?

Fact is, I'm having a little trouble with "a fly pattern I improved on" because I only tie about 10 flys. I ordered some odd ball stuff from Cabela's I'm waiting on. I saw a muddler minnow tied out of Puglisi's material I thought was neat enough to learn to tie. My friend I tie with has been in Delaware for his Son's wedding for a couple weeks now and I'm going to ask him too.

You see, my problem is that I fly fish in one place, and I know and tie the flys that catch fish there. I've never had a very big catalog of patterns. I'm spinning on this challenge.

C'mon, 1minuteľ join the chaos. I know you're a tweaker (no disrespect intended)(this time).
AKGrayling hasn't chimed in. In fact, he hasn't posted since last March. Somebody throw a loop around him, drag him back into the 'Firelight.

So, would I be allowed to join in if I wanted too ..... after my former reputation in the last swap and all?

Don't act innocent with me!

If you give that Boots fella the slightest bit of wiggle room, we won't see his flies until June.
('Course, maybe he'd tie us an extra again to assuage his guilt. That'd be nice.)

We could do what we have been known to do with others.... Give a fake time (say a few weeks or a month ahead of time) and maybe actually get them on time. wink

An early bird. I like it.


BTW, all, here is a help from an earlier Swap:

Originally Posted By: macrabbit

Include something reasonable for return postage. $5 or less should do.
. No volunteer SwapMaster should have to shoulder the entire cost.
. But don't be over-generous. That could put an additional sense of obligation, with no way to fulfill it, on the SM.

Send your own fly box or other reusable container.
. Anything but nymphs requires more than a flat envelope, and putting together a dozen suitable boxes entails quite a bit of effort. As best you can anticipate, use a box large enough to fit the return flies (your engagement ring box might fit your dozen #22 midges, but will it fit the shark flies the others tie?).

Make up, if not install (not always packagingly convenient), your own 'toe tags', with fly name and tier handle. And avoid too large a tag.
. Another SM-saving chore.

Tie enough flies for all participants, including yourself.
. Keeps the SM's job simple, not having to track different fly sets.

Keep the SM informed.
. Being a little late is no big deal, but silence leaves the SM in anxious, and helpless, limbo.

Have fun with it all.
. That's an easy one. Should be first on the list.

If you don't get them in by Valentine's I'll tell your wife you had a date for that day.

Since this is the Tweaker Swap, I hope that each Swapper will explain the tweak and the reason therefore: the expected benefit, etc.
(What if we put up our own pic with explanation? That'd keep info and pic together (rather than Mistress posting pic and then Swapper describing it some posts below, disconnected). I'm trying to get these thoughts out before mailers are sealed.)
