    Re: Fly Swap - Favorite Spring Pattern

    Hi pitbull, welcome to the swap. Frans Better's pattern is really nice and has accounted for numerous amounts of fish caught. I am not sure if I like this one or the Hay Stacks better.

    Re: Fly Swap - Favorite Spring Pattern

    Andy, I thought you were tying for my swap?

    If not, let me remove your name from the list.

    And, Andy, I got no hard feelings....

    In fact, I will give you both Trout Beaver and Tomk6251 for your swap.

    Ah yes...

    Those two Benedict Arnold's didnt need any pushing out the door from Beetle.

    Bye bye, Beaver.

    Nobody wants your flies anyway.

    I believe it was a revolving door. You're in. You're OUT. Ok, you're in...NOPE - you're out. At last count, I think I was out...

    Re: Fly Swap - Favorite Spring Pattern

    Andy,

    Your scheduling a fly swap the same time as GB? Aren't you in GB's?
    I'd like to join your swap but I don't think I can tie all those flies. LOL
    GB's swap is going to be cool I think some the flies are going to be donated to T.U.

    Re: Fly Swap - Favorite Spring Pattern

    Hi Tomk6251, Trout Fever & AKSkim:

    Thanks for joining the swap, All three of you are in. Only 8 more slots open to fill the swap

    ---------- Post added at 10:28 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:09 PM ----------

    Hi GB and G Lech:

    Here is what I hate, swaps are open to every one and if we are going to discourage others from participating then it should never be publicly posted here on the site. Also telling people there out then in and then out is way to confusing and not promoting what a true fly swap is suppose to be, FUN. Flies swaps are fun and a learning experience not to mention the pressure that one puts on themselves to try and tye flies that every one is going to like, You had this problem really bad last year and you overcame it. If the swap is for select members only fine. I do not disaprove of this. But rubbing peoples noses in it is pretty low. If you know me and what I stand for far as tying, then you know that I teach all the time to those who want to learn for free. I also include all levels of tyers in my swaps and also try to answer questions or calm them down when they get a little nervous of tying and having to show their work off in public. Right now I am on the fence with your swap at the moment and do not even know what the swap is all about and now flies being donated to TU. I do not have an issue with you, but I do not stand for lack of direction and tying for a different purpose and at this point do not even understand the purpose of this event. If you want some flies donated to TU, I will tye them and be on my way. Please understand I do not tye for competition sake nor care too. That is just me.

    Sincerely
    Andy Brasko

    P.S. Trout Fever & Tomk6251 are both my friends and will gladly take them in one of my swaps any day.

    Andy B, my swap is a go.

    I want you involved.

    And, let me clarify a few things.

    Tomk6251 and Trout Fever?

    I sent them PM's explaining that THEY WERE IN and the whole "You're in - You're out" thing was a lark.

    You've seen Trout Fever's flies, right?

    So, you can't say that my swap wasn't open to poor tyers.

    It just happened that a lot of highly skilled guys signed up real quick.

    An I thank you, and the rest...

    That said, I got nothing against trout fever.

    I even offered the other day (via PM) to bring Trout Fever along on my float trip with Joe D this May.

    The only person taking this seriously, besides perhaps you, is...

    Well, take a guess.

    He's one of your tyers.

    But my swap is a definite go.
