SWFF Fly Swap

For those of you who have entered the fly swap - I will be taking an inventory of entries once Blue Northern recovers from the Marlboro show.

I scramble and ship if a reasonable percentage of the people who showed interest have send in their flies by Mid-February. This will allow two weeks before the Wilmington Fly Show, in case people want to meet each other after exchanging their secret weapons (signing non-disclosures, etc)

<!--http--><a href="http://stripers101.com" target="_blank">stripers101.com</a><!--url--> is back up (finally). If you want to hear a web hosting horror story, I've got one to tell.

regards,
Juro

RE:SWFF Fly Swap

Just tried twice to post this to R/T... crashed the first time, then game me 20 questions about why it failed the second time I re-typed it. If anyone is having luck, could you relay the message?

Let me know,
Juro

RE:SWFF Fly Swap

Hey Juro, I had the same trouble on R-T the other day...when does planning/suggestions for next years conclaves start?



BTW: What blanks are you using for your two handed project?
are you cutting one down? or purchasing smaller ones...

RE:SWFF Fly Swap

Hi Dave -

Good to hear from you. Have you gone to FLA yet? I've since gotten some great contacts down there if you need them. I hope to get these pro's active in our forum, and get our members involved in everglades conservation and other issues where they could use all the people they can get.

Anyway - the blanks:

We have received the generous offer of a donated blank from member Jay Clancy (applause) and additional interest from major manufacturing reps which will be announced when confirmed. I am thinking of additionally setting up a $10 / week trial rental program to help finance blanks. The rental would include all rods we built for one week at a time, no limit to the number of rental weeks provided no one else is waiting.

I know you are a rod builder, and if you'd like to participate in the program from the build process with Smitty that would be really cool. (any other rod builders out there?)

In any case, we will be doing a mix of cutting and using existing blanks with the objective to find "the right stuff". My personal opinion is that there are a lot of confused people casting Spey rods in the surf. This is not a Spey rod problem, but two-hands are killer.

let me know to what extent you want to get involved

Juro
