Autumn Steelhead or Salmon Fly Swaps

What happened to our fly swaps ?

Everyone must be fishing.on vacation, or getting their kids ready for school I guess.

I would be interested in participating, don't know if I have the time to be the fly meister (coordinator) though due to the hellish work schedule that is before me. Plus it is football season and will be following my sons HS team weekly games.

Any body interested ?

Hal

I'd be interested but swaps are typically most popular during off seasons - mid-winter for instance. Frankly with my work schedule, family demands, etc - everything I tie this time of year goes onto a tippet!

Ok, you twisted my arm

Want me to meister one? Only ONE condition. We set a timeline and it's FOLLOWED!!!!! No more of this (yes, I'm talking about YOU SPARKEY ) "give me one more week". I'm game to meister if you'll all abide by timeline.

Yes I know what you mean Juro, our best fishing time of the year is almost upon us.

Steelheader69 there will always be some people that cannot make deadlines, happens to me at work all the time, even with senior executives, can you beleive that ? Yes I guess we can after Enron, World Com, Andersen etc..

I would be willing to participate though

Miss deadlines?????

What?!?!?!?! Nahhhhhhhhhhhh. lol If I miss a deadline, it's my butt in a sling at UPS (probably because it's a money back refund if we're late). So I am pretty anal about getting things done on time (and from what I know of you Hal, you're pretty quick about getting things done as well, so don't play coy with me MISTER) :hehe:

If there's enough interest, I'm game to host. I'm in process of tying up what's left of an international fly swap I just hosted (it's weird that I'm ONLY US fly swappee, rest are UK/Europe). Should be interesting.

I agree, some of the recent swaps (not just steelhead) got so beyond the deadline that it was unfair to participants.

We should adopt a gentleman's agreement that swap participants hold to an agreed upon date barring unforseen circumstances, etc. If anyone feels they can't make the date they should wait for the next one so as to respect the other participants who make the effort to meet the given date.

And don't forget the extra fly for the swapmeister!

Ok, I am in what is it an autumn steelhead or salmon swap ?

Just make it ten participants max and with a due date that wil allow us to actually apply the flies to our home waters this year (2002).

Thanks,

Hal

P.S. Jerry your right I am usually always on time it is many of the people I work with who cannot deliver that I must deal with. Delivering on time was learned at 18 years old in a USAF fighter interceptor squadron (Iceland). See link below. When the colonel was always asking why all of his fighters were not flying from the control center upstairs, it was easy for him to come down into the hangar and inquire to his 2 avionics technicians what the heck is taking you so long, etc... The russians are testing our NORAD air defenses (100 times the year I was there)and you guys better get your act together. One gains a fast understanding of what delivering on time means, no matter what the weather or duration of time you needed to work through to meet the objective. Oh yes there was no such thing as sick days either !

Hmmmmmm

How about a salmon swap? They're starting to come into rivers now. Make it your favorite salmon bug for whatever salmon you prefer. May tie up a chum fly I use. Sound good to everyone? 10 max sounds good too. What do you think? Say, flies by first of October? I know it only gives a good month, but seriously speaking. It only takes a good hour or so on the bench to get 10 flies out (unless they're really intricate) and a week max to get to me.

Now, where's the participants??? Maybe Juro can swing this post on the Pacific Salmon board as well.

I'm in and ready to divulge a GL king salmon producer from my super private fly wallett.

I have a number of big boys chase this baby down and then bring me down stream with them on their way back to Lake M.

Looks like it is just me and you to date. For the record, I have started tying mine.

Hmmmmm

I tied up a few dozen this weekend. I'm trading 2 dozen spey flies for a reel I've been dying to get. At this rate, the 2 extra flies I tied will be fore the fly swap.

Ashley,

Great we always like those international fly specimens to gain new knowledge from.

That makes 3 participants Jerry.
