kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

The swap that keeps on giving. Arrived home from a week of fighting high water to find a care package from a most accomplished Drakian. Thanks Woven they will be cherished. I look forward to you seeing where they will live and sharing a run with you. :cool

They look like paintings, or like they've been painted on a hook- gorgeous. You's a lucky one Root.

a salmon fly tyer goes to heaven and upon admittance sees hale, traherne, pryce-tannatt and dave carne sitting around a table tying flies.
salmon tyer says to st. peter 'fuck me... I didn't know dave carne was dead.'
"he isn't... that's god."
'oh. oh right.'
"god likes to take the piss, hey..." st. peter says "so when he's tying flies with the lads he likes to pretend he's dave carne."

hardy fucking hardy.

that's why we call him the saint, mate.
just don't tell him my speys were/are lost in the post, he'd be absolutely gutted.

Are you shitting me! Those were shipped at least 6 weeks ago and still nothing! Sorry for that. I should have shipped them when I shipped everyone else's flies. I'll make up for it.

I will admit, this salmon fly swap was the best thing I have ever done for My tying. I improved more during this swap than at any other point in I'm life.

woven aka the saint!

rest easy.
we're all good, mate. it arrived today.
not counting that batch of cigars postman pat are smoking, I'm undefeated.

you posted 4 january. damn.

thank you, mate. and the turkey's perfect... suppose I'll have to finish that fly some day.
you didn't really have to send me anything but I look forward to chucking them this (northern) autumn.

cheers, fellas.

Damn, I thought it was gone for ever. The turkey is not perfect but hopefully it will work. After 3 months of waiting, (one for me and two for the post) I'm sure you ordered some anyway.
Glad it arrived.
