Hmmm.....

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.

Thanks,

Mike

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.

Greg

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.

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?

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 ;-).

Thanks,
Greg.

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.

Thanks,
Greg.

Time

Greg,

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.

Mike

Deadline coming soon!

Fellas,

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.

Thanks,

Mike
