different kind of swap - your tarpon flies for my prints

Post by vaku » Sat Mar 14, 2015 5:11 pm

Booked a pretty spectacular week of tarpon fishing in May, in Key West, with a spot on guide. Luck of someone canceling. I don't have any tarpon flies. I tie shitty flies and will tie some shitty tarpon flies. But you guys, you guys tie pretty flies. So, I am offering up a different kind of swap. 1 8x10 of your choice for one tarpon fly. Choose from any of the images below, or pick another one if you want something different that you've seen in my archives. All photos will be professionally printed either on a gloss paper or a nice fine art matte paper, depending on my mood and amount of bourbon in my system. The will be mailed in a protected photo mailer to your house. you send me a fly. You may also substitute a musky fly if you wan to, I can't tie those either.
Sned a pm describing the photo you want or pick the row and A or B or C from left to right. I can also tell you more about each photo if you want to know more.

If I manage to catch a tarpon, on your fly, I will try to get a photo of said fly in the mouth of the tarpon for you also.

Please claim a photo here and then PM me with addy. Also include which photo in the pm cause I'll be to lazy to look back here.
