    Ok, so I didn't want to send out poor quality flies, Andy B, so I ordered a dozen caddis from Orvis and had them shipped to your address.

    They looked pretty good on the Internet, and I'm sure you all will be happy with them.

    Re: New Years Fly Swap

    GB, time to put it to you straight. As previously stated we all have been in your shoes far as a newbie tyer, Some of us (Myself) included did not want to show any of my flies. Then I became a Guild member and was terrified that my skill were not good enough to be around that class of tyers. Boy was I wrong, they encouraged me, helped me grow and then aided in getting my tying level up to higher ranks. I also studied classic winged wet fly techniques and was a follower of Don Bastain for the longest time. I broke away from that mold and have developed my own style and looks. I am no longer Don's number one protege. I am now just Andy Brasko a true classic wet fly tyer and angler. I have been fishing wet flies for 20 years and love them and study all about them. My point here you will never get better unless you practice, join swaps and get your flies out on the internet and take constructive critisim when asked for by you. I am a little disappointed with the flies because I wanted to see your work, and do not give a damb how they look. What mattered is that you tried, probably learned and did the best you can. When I look at newbies now adays I think of Trout Fever who knows he needs and wants to improve and takes all the constructive input he can to get better. Tying is not how beautiful your fly looks, it's about tying flies to catch fish and staying connected to fly fishing during those long winter months. It's a relaxation and a hobby. Actually it's what you make of it. If you hate or dislike tying that's fine because at least you gave it a try. But if you give up on it you may never know the joy's of the hobby, sport and art. Do as you feel, but the only one your hurting inb this case is yourself and allowing your foolish pride to get in the way.

    Respectfully
    Andy Brasko

    Re: New Years Fly Swap

    Well put Andy well put. I still don't like the way my flies come out but thats what keeps us all practicing and getting better. Beetle all the bs aside you should sit down and tie your caddis and send them in. Nobody's flies are perfect the fact that you tried is all that matters.

    I hope you do GB it's nice to get a box of flys you know everyone worked hard tye. Makes it all worth the while. And as Andy said and I will echo tying for this swap will give you the practice and make you more confident in the future when you go to tye for another swap or yourself for that matter. Can't wait to see them!

    Not sure yet Andy but my guess would be try to get there early by the looks of the tyer list . Theres going to be a lot of people there for sure they may have to open the other building.
