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.

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

Welp, mine are done, in a little fly box and will be mailed tomorrow. Now I tie to catch feesh...not fishermen...so these olive quasi-buggers ain't necessarily purty...but they catch feesh around my parts!!!!

An early bird. I like it.


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

. 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.

Bravo

Yea, we tried that with our BIL and it didn't work....

I didn't think I saw a true due date .......... grin.

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.)

Good idea, mac.

troutfly, we'll tie the dozen (or baker's doz), then if we have some late entries, they'll be covered.

We told MsKeeto the due date was MLK day. (or we told her valentine's day was in January!) grin

In other words, troutfly, Mitsy is hoping to profit from leftovers.
And if she sends you an extra-large personal check and asks for a money order of the difference, run.

Someone told me that every day is MLK day.

Whatever happened to virtue being its own reward?

I came out ahead when I ran the Swap a couple of years ago- a little postage $, a couple of bonus flies, and even a couple of nice little gifts. Warm fuzzy.

That's what the "warm fuzzy" was for. Most of these Swappers (the Alaskans who know you, excepted) will race each other to make you warmer & fuzzier.
