OK... as of now I have flat wings from Adrian, Boarmountain, Jim Simms, Brian Fleury, Joe Wojtan, Jim Whalen and a 7th I will need help to identify... Someone, and I think it may have been Larry P. (Shadfreak) who gave me olive colored flat wings in a black VCR box at the show... please come foreward and ID yourself. I just looked back on the report #2 and we are missing flies from, TodD, Dfix, Eddie, Saltydog, Birdfish, Quentin and Doc Duprey.... Please correct me if I am wrong here.... Technically the swap is suppose to be over but I will have to extend it a bit...but it will be over on April 1... we will need to have an end point. The key here is to get them in before Dave Fix gets his in;)

John,

Missed today's mail, so they are going out Monday. I am shipping them in a fly box, so that they are not crushed in transit.

Best regards,

-Doc

Doc.
What kind of a fly box are you sending your flies in?.

Joe,

I am using one of those inexpensive fly shop boxes with the rubber nubs on the inside to hold the hooks. It's about 8 in. long, so the flies fit reasonably well. I don't usually store them in that box because it is not waterproof. Ok for mailing, though.

How goes the recovery?

Best regards,

-Doc

Thanks for the reply on the fly box.
I'm progressing slowly, but each day I feel stronger, I will be off all my medication by the end of the week,
Then I'm will be ready for some square danceing.
:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Just so everyone knows..all flyboxes will be returned with the swap flies in them... Right now I have one extra box which I think came from Double Haul and I used two from the swaps as boxes for the drawings at the show. If for some reason you did not get your box back or don't in the next swap it is unintentional so just e-mail me a reminder that I still have your box...and I will send it back promptly ... thanks.

Sorry for the late anouncement, but I'm going to have to back out of this one.

John, I think I'm out too. BUT . . . If I somehow manage to get the flies tied in time I'll send them in. Unfortunately, I don't have any JC for the eyes. Are adhesive holographic eyes acceptable?

Eddie and Q... swaps are not intended to be "jobs"... don't worry if you have to drop out... they are set up for that possibility and should have no effect on the remaining participants..

It's not a job . . . it's an adventure! Or in my case, perhaps more of a misadventure :hehe:

I'd like to stay in this one, but I didn't have the proper materials until after the Wilmington show and my time at the vise has been significantly reduced since then. In fact, most of the stuff I picked up at the show is still in the bag :rolleyes: . It looks like I'll have some tying time over the next couple of days, and if the feathers are kind to me then I may be able to turn out enough acceptable flies in time to meet the deadline.
