Rooster Swap

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.

I'm confident we can make it 3 years.

At least.

What the general board doesn't know is that I actually went rooster fishing pretty near the original deadline for this swap. I'd sent my flies in on time but the rest of it wasn't panning out so good. So F. Bab, Bears Fan, South Strain, Crabbie (and maybe someone else?) sent me flies for the trip.

So that was cool.

And notable I reckon.
Now, if that ain't drakian, I don't know what is...

Gentlemen.

You're patience with my complete and total shitshow is noted, appreciated, and will be repaid in full.

Fresh back from the East Cape, and some successes were had in very tough conditions. New patterns fished, and a few got good feedback and some eats. I will add them to my swap pile, as well as some others.

More to come. Thank you again for waiting 16 years for your flies. I will do my best to style each of you out, and say thanks.

I do have something for each of you to say thanks for your patience however

Please PM me your name and mailing addresses again and I will get the goods shipped!

No pulling patterns out of your ass that you "think" might work...already have plenty of those from my own field work failures.

You folks better tie good shit, Babar ain't got time to be fishing your weak untested patterns, you suckers.

I'm a massively slack ass loser. Clearly. And I have come to throw myself upon the sword.......again.

Longest swap in history I think?.... :vomit Beyond Lame.

Life threw me a few massive and wild ass curveballs a few years back, and in the process, due to chaos beyond my control... the entire contents of the swap were...lost. wtf? holy shit. how could this happen? no bueno.

Inexcusable and hard to explain, short of reiterating....I suck. I suck. I suck. Yes, it's very true.

To make thing's right here...I have a special gift for each of you. However...I need your personal shipping info again if you want to receive said care package. Hopefully you will not be disappointed further. You probably will, but what the hell....I'm trying to make amends the best I can.

DM me with your info and I will get a box out to each of you.

to recap....I suck.
