    Re: Golden Beetle's: INVITE ONLY fly swap

    Well there has been a lot of talk of fly swaps but none has been held this year on this board and it's time to get one started and going. This swap will be for your favorite spring pattern. It can be dry's, wet flies, streamers, emergers and so on. Long as it's your favorite fly to use in spring, Sign-up will be now through Wednesday February 29, 2012. The swap is open to the first thirteen tyers that sign up and no more. If the swap is completely full then every tyers has to tye a total of 12 flies and will receive 12 different flies in return. Flies are to be completed and sent to my home address no later than March 30, 2012. If everyone completes their flies sooner and I have every ones flies, then I will sort them and mail them out to all. I will provide my Home address to all after the sign-up deadline or the swap fills sooner. When Signing up, please let me know what pattern that you will be tying. If your not sure at the time of sign-up then please let me know as soon as possible. This swap is open to all tyers of all levels, so beginners do not be afraid to join. Swaps are fun and as I always said a learning experience to all.

    Okay with that being said and rules applied, In the swap so far are the following tyers:

    1) Andy Brasko - Tying the Blue Dun Wet Fly
    2) pitbull - Tying The Usual
    3) Trout Fever - TBD
    4) tomk6251 - TBD
    5) AKSkim - Tying the Yellow Stimulator

    ---------- Post added at 10:48 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:20 PM ----------

    I have cut and pasted A Brasko Fly Tyer's Rules and Regulations.

    They have been adopted as the official Rules and Regulations of the Beetle Swap.

    We already have our tyers.

    And the list of Tyers included above -- it is actually the list of tyers who are NOT TYING for the BEETLE SWAP...

    Attention all tyers!

    A Brasko Fly Tyer and AKSkim have defected from the Beetle Swap!

    Because of A Brasko Fly Tyer's act of mutiny, he will henceforth be referred to by the name...

    Andy B.

    Let me check my list.

    Also, have you submitted a picture of your fly to the board for my review?

    If not, please submit a photo of the fly immediately.

    After that, I will inform you of whether you are in or out of the swap.

    Finally, if Johnny Utah agrees to join the swap at any time prior to February 29, you are out without notice.

    Tom, You're IN the OUT list. Wait, nope, it was just updated, your OUT of the IN list. I'm stuck in a revolving door and can't get out, or in, or out. Tom

    A big swap, no doubt.

    But you wouldn't expect anything less from the Beetle, would you?

    Propose your flies.

    You have until February 29 -- plenty of time to think and start tying if you choose.

    Valla, Grobert and Johnny Utah are still wanted.

    But this is the final list, pending word from those three.

    NOBODY WILL BE BUMPED FROM THE LIST. NO WAY.

    It will be a big swap...

    But I want it to be.

    The definitive NEFF fly swap.
    A few decided to quit.

    A clash of egos developed over who could organize the better fly swap.

    That's the truth.

    Look at the list above.

    And try hard to figure it out.

    But the list of tyers is above, and it is stronger than ever.

    It is a solid group of 12. And you will get a few bonus flies for participating. A buddy of mine is sending some flies over on Monday that I will distribute.

    Announce your flies whenever you're ready.

    Re: Golden Beetle's: INVITE ONLY fly swap

    I just heard from Beatle. Another rule for the fly swap. Pick you favorite fly, using your right hand. Now put it in your left hand. Swap over...

    Andy/AK/TF - I don't know about you folks, but I didn't quit this fly swap. The Beatle offered, and I accepted. Then I was told that I was OUT! Sounds like the Beatle renegged on his offer.

    If you all agree, I propose that we begin a class action suit against the Beatle. I also propose that we hire John to represent us. Yes, yes, I know what you're thinking - isn't John and the Beatle one and the same? Yes, they are one, but they are not the same. If you have met John in person, he is a quiet, mild-mannered gentleman. Whereas the Beatle, well, he's the Beatle, a legend in his own mind.

    If this goes to court, we will have an advantage, since the Beatle will never see John coming. And, once he does, he will have no clue how to defend himself, against himself. At that point he will graciously offer to settle out of court, probably at Killkenny's Pub.
