: Fly Swap #1- Third Report

We are getting close to the end of the line... need flies from Grego, Birdfish, Eddie, DocD, Steelheadmike and Quentin. The rest are in, Flytyer1948, Dble Haul, Smolt, Capt. Shinner, Striperknight, Jim Simms, Ashley. Let me know if you guys can get them to me the week after Xmas so I can mail out to everyone. If you can not , I will go with what I have unless there is a request to keep it open.

John, I'm going to have to drop out of this one. As usual I waited too long to get started and there's no way I'll be able to get them in on time now :o . Maybe I'll do better in the next swap :rolleyes: .

With Quentin (and possibly others) dropping out, you may want to know what to do with the "extra" flies submitted by those of us who have already sent in our works of art. As far as I am concerned, please feel free to keep any extras I may have submitted. I hope you can catch a few fish with them.

Best wishes to all for a Happy Holiday Season.

No problem Q... that's the way these swaps are set in open out..... smolt... Right now we have 6 or 7 guys in...I will recheck... so since we have 6 flies and one extra...I think... everyone will get the exact same... that does not work out if we have more than 6 participants...but all get 6 anyway... The extra fly I get goes into a box which we raffle off at the show in Marlboro.... any extras beyond the original 7 will be divided out... I keep none except for the raffle box. I do think we will get some others in... I will plan to mail the week between Xmas and New Years... but if I know I am getting some others in I will send the first week of the new year. I still need to hear from you other guys...In or out.????
