    Sorry to hear that Larry, I was looking forward to meeting you. We'll meet up at a beach this winter. If you're still interested in the swap, we can swap addresses and treat it like a mail swap.

    Here's my flies for the swap. Nice weather we're having.

    Hey, those are looking good Steve. I'm still in the swap. If Ron McNeal is still heading over, he could deliver/pickup for me possibly if I can twist his arm. Yes, we should go hit a beach sometime together. After this week, it appears to be a long winter!

    I just finished tying Ferguson Green and Silver patterns(see attachments) for the swap. I used SFL(synthetic living fibre) dubbing in Fl. line green for the body head and white artic fox tail for the wing and tail with a little pearl Krystal Flash over the top.

    Looking forward to the swap!

    Glad to see people are making headway on tying for the face to face. I am suggesting that we meet at my house at 4PM. I have arranged to have some good BBQ for the swap. I will also have some great local beer. I caught hell for not inviting a good friend to the swap who is a master tier. He has been included (host discretion) and he will tie a Bucktail Coachman. He is a WFF stalker who goes by "reelin-n-dealin". If you have time to tie one more fly that is great. If not, he is happy just to be included. I will have some space set up to tie so if you want to tie some flies, feel free to bring your vise and materials. More details coming soon. I am excited to see you all. Dry Fly Larry, understand your situation and am disappointed you won't be here. Steve and I will catch up with you on the Canal sometime soon. Please feel free to pm me if you have any special food needs.
    Good tying. Steve

    No she's fine Kelvin although she does run away from me when she see's me with scissors:clown:

    I can't wait to meet everyone and their patterns and for the extra guest I'll bring some extra flies or he can have Larry's :clown:.

    Sorry you won't be making Larry.

    Kelvin,

    Yes I will be mailing my flies in. I am so..........o disappointed I can't make it, to meet the guys I haven't met. My weekends are eaten up now, temporarily that is. No! I am not giving up my historic flies! You can give them to Ron McNeal, as he will deliver them to me.
