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.

Thanks Nate! And thanks to the rest of you dudes! Some great flies in the package. And cool Koozy. Who sent the green one from Kettle creek PA? That thing brings back some memories.

Got'em this week. Truly outstanding work, men!
One of my favorite parts of swaps is seeing techniques/'terials on other guys' flies that I can use to unfuck my own.
Thanks, fellas.

Mine showed up just as I was leaving for camp on Monday. Great timing, even better fly ties.

Glista, the Jeff's Bar koozy is from me. In fact I was just swimming your fly on the lower end of that crick this morning.

PS: so we don't get one of our own back? Mines the tube without eyes and flexitube butt.

So the flexitube is part of the fly? I'm pretty ignorant on these here tube fly things. In fact, I was drinking cocktails through that bright blue one today until somebody told me it was a fly.

Mine arrived just before I left for summer camp so I took the opportunity to swing a few on my way home last Saturday. What a hot mess of fishiness.

I didn't catch shit, but I was able to tune up my two hander cast.

And I guaran-damn-tee this flies are gonna hook some serious bronzebacks.

Killer swap boys!

So did anybody else make hay from this swap?

I lost that nice fly from D-nymph. I fished pbr's fly a few times for largemouth and as delicious as it looked, I couldn't get bit (I think it didn't go deep enough). I tried one or two of the others, but all the failures to catch were my own, not the flies'.

I have them squirreled away for special occasions.


Dnymphz will be getting its swang on in approximately 11 days.
