You guys are fucking awesome, I am at a bar in Livingston MT reading this through the cracked glass of my smart phone Flys are in the car. My permanent crew works over 120 hours a week since you guys seem to like hearing the hour totals.

Thanks for the understanding, I will get them out this week for sure.

Crazy night at the strip club in Williston NoDak last night,
Sorry I missed you Josh.

For real. The highlight of me having beers with Josh was that the place had fried cheese curds.......

Final thoughts...

There were basicly 10 tiers in this swap
We had one guy fall out because honestly
the dude travels the world living the dream
He explained himself fully in a PM... Good enough.
As a result of pursuing my own life goals I did not really tie.
No big loss there.

I did however fully rape and pillage
My personal stash of Streamer awesomeness
Collected from you guys over a span of a few years.
Good stuff from Overbrook, Deet, Unskunkable and Sak
Among others went into the shipments
I did not ship a single fly that was not painful to part with
If it has a loop knot still connected, I fished it.

So there is the VH1 Behind the Music story
Of blummers Ulua swap.
Fish the shit out of that stuff
Or feel free to bitch and moan on this thread
My conscience is clear either way.

Oh yeah compared to some of you I suck on bonus material
I will make up for it on a new assifieds contest
To be unveiled shortly...

FUCK YES!!

I always "try" and push myself with these swaps. I just can't compete with some of you boys...

Deet, Crab, SLSS and all involved. :cool Well done fellas.
