    I'm thinking that DC went in with Tom on these shenanigans because as we know, DC doesn't tie his own flies

    Re: Last fly swap was....

    One of the drawbacks to internet friendships, that just use screen names, is that no one tells you if they become incapacitated or die.

    I wasn't in the swap, so I don't have his address, but I did some "Googling".
    Is this him? If this is where you sent the flies, you have a phone number.

    Now, I'm doin' a little reading between the lines here, but, what I think
    Pete here is saying, is that everyone who sent flies to Tom should meet up at LU's McDonald's, distribute pitchforks and clubs with nails through them, and head on over to Tom's (cause I believe Pete is right on the money) and take care of your business... that is, if Tom is not already dead or otherwise "incapacitated".

    Right, Pete?

    I'm looking forward to reading the thread about this on Monday morning...

    In an earlier post some frustration was expressed because no one seemed to have his phone number.
    That person may be under the impression that there's such a thing a privacy on the internet.

    I was NOT suggesting any thoughtless behavior, when the grieving widow (or caregiver) answers the phone.
    Having said that, I was unable to find an obituary, but maybe I didn't try hard enough.

    My bad...
    Thoughtless behavior... I thought this came quite easily to many of the posters here at NEFF...

    Re: Last fly swap was....

    Do you think it possible that Tom got caught up in one of the recent ICE sweeps?

    THAT... or....
    Maybe he ran afoul of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 by using feathers in his new BWO recipe from that Junco he shot at his birdfeeder this winter.
