RE:Fly Swap deadline?

I'll defer decisions to Bob Pink to avoid confusion. He mentioned something about the option of picking them up at the Marlboro show, but I don't want to speak on his meister's behalf.

Bob - please let me know what you need me to do for this swap. I am happy to drive down your neck of the woods, or to help out in any way you need.

RE:Fly Swap deadline?

Doug, here are the details. As soon as figure out how, I will post this info on the Clave/Swap roster page.

I hereby declare that the FlySwap 2001/clave is now in session,
Glad to see so much interest in sharing favorite (and possibly) secret striper swipers this winter. I'll assume that our IS Manager Al_d is already on the path of setting up a registration board {Al has it up already @ <a href="http://dev.dugmore.com/claves/" target="_blank"><!--auto-->http://dev.dugmore.com/claves/</a><!--auto--> } so we'll know who is participating. If you are like me right now you are still catching up on all the work-work and home-work that went negelcted in favor of fishing. That and the upcoming holiday season will shut down my tying bench for the next few weeks so how about we set a date for all submissions to be in my hands by....(drum roll please)...
February 23rd, (2001 for those of us who are trying to avoid what year it is)

Please mail your works of art and inspiration (or perspiration?) to:

Bob Pink Jr
c/o Stratford Associates
118 Old Colony Ave
Quincy, MA 02170

I'll ship them back via UPS so make sure I have a street address ( no PO Boxes please ) and $1.50.

I will probably follow Ray's suggestion of processing them in groups of 6 as they come in so the earlier you send your's in the sooner you are likely to see your return package.

If you want to include a 'recipe' for the pattern, please make the 6 copies to send with the flies.

Have fun!
Bob

Am I to infer from this that we supposed to tie 6 copies of the Same fly? I've never done one of these, so I'm completely in the dark, so forgive me if this is a dumb question.

gregO -

Sorry, I somehow missed this post. You can send 6 of same, or you can send 6 mixed. It really doesn't matter. The point is, whatever you send just attach the recipe with the flies so whoever gets the masterpiece also gets an accompanying recipe.

Yes, I am going and was hoping I'd learn enough to tie that many. Sounds doable, so I'm still in...

RE:Fly Swap deadline?

Um, a little carification is needed for those of us who have just discovered the joys of sniffing softex...

Are the flies supposed to be our own, original patterns or just 6 flies regardless of whose pattern it is?
