Deadline coming soon!


The time has come that we need to think about wrapping up the swap.

This is a final chance for those that signed up and cannot complete the task to back out with dignity. Otherwise it is time to pony up and get flies in the mail.

I will wait until Monday morning, April 4th to decide to send out the flies that I have. If, at that time, I know that others have flies in the mail then I will wait before I send out the flies.

What do you guys think? With flies from myself, CascoBay, Grizz, GregD and JimW we could still chalk this up as a good experience.

Anyone else plan on sending flies to me soon?

No pressure, just curious.

I hear you on time consuming flies.

I decided to tie some large Sedotti Slammer style flies after tinkering with a Grocery Fly.

I know how to whip up the Slammers so they were a good choice. Some of these flies take loads of time.

Thanks for getting the other flies to me.

GregD Hey Mike,

I finished up the last 2 and will be sending them out right away. Perhaps I 'll find a nice big pattern that isn't quite so time consuming next time.

GregD Hey Mike,

Glad the flies made it OK. I re-loaded on Craft fur yesterday and will crank out the last two this week. Jim, I promise I won't hold up the migration much longer ;-).

Got more

GregD and CascoBay: I received your excellent flies.

GregD with the huge squid and CascoBay with the herring that he photographed for an earlier post.

Looking good.

Looking forward to seeing these herring in person!

Migration will occur

Thanks for the extention...... The herring are ready to make their migration from Maine down to NH . I will pop them in the mail today. I can't wait. I am ready for some spring Twinkies!

Hope you enjoy them,

CascoBay: check your PM


You get me the herring by April 1st and you are in.

Check your PM for my address.

I'm in

I will do up some big Hollow Herring for the swap! 10-12 inchers that don't foul! I will have 'em done this week. Where should I send them?

03-16-2005 12:45 PM
JimW Mike, Thanks for the kind words. Let's hope the fish that bite 'em are proportional to the flies

Come on Greg you're holding up the migration I can't wait to see those flies, with all the talk of dragging squid through the south side rips I've been looking at the options for imitating these sea darts. With the limited time I've had for tying lately it may end up putting an old rag on a hook and seeing it that atlantis will chuck it.

Sounds Good Greg

April 1st it is - just in time for the cows!
03-15-2005 11:11 PM
GregD Well I'm almost done guys, sorry for the delay on these flies. The patterns are quite large and time consuming,. I just finished the fifth and am about out of craft fur for the sixth. I've combed and tied alot more than I figured per fly, But I' ve never tied fly's like this big squid before. I think you'll see what I mean shortly. I can shoot the five out now and the remaining 2 flies out next week after I reload on craft fur and tie it up. That way everyone can get flies by April 1st.

JimW - Nice flies


I received your flies and they are:
A. Impressively huge
B. Very fishy looking


03-01-2005 07:01 PM

Seeing as I am late as well I guess all of this is OK.

Let's reset. Just try to get the flies to me by March 15th. I would like to get them photographed and shipped off to you guys for arrival before April 1st.

I hope that is OK for everyone.

Many thanks to grizz for being the timely participant. The flies look awesome.

Look for a PM with my address.

Tod D Greg - I'm right with you & running late. Mike - I'll aim to have them in the mail by Wednesday if that's ok!
