Had to take it easy yesterday, too much beer and sun over weekend meant I was a touch overdone (ie lobster) so days shopping with my good lady and wee lass and then sitting on patio with some dorada watching sunset. Only problem with sleeping earlier is I'm now up at this unearthly hour :mad:

And no, GK, didn't bring my vice, need space to bring dutyfree home :D. Anyway, when are you going to announce the invention test TOTM results? No reason, just wanted to know....:p

Fly swap

Half way through. Should be able to post in the next couple of days.
Black Brahan , never tied one before. It's recommended in the far north of Scotland and other places for a good low water grilse catcher. Needs another coat of varnish.

Sorry everyone!

I'll only get to the post office today so apologies as I'm holding the whole thing up.

Unfortunately photobucket is playing up with me so can't upload my photo, but the 10 are done and will be sent today.

I've tied my wee low water Comet that has done me well over the past couple of season. They're tied on size 12 Silver Doubles.

Mine posted today too, a couple of single hook versions in there as well as I seem to remember a couple of our "foreign" participants cant use doubles.
Have a good Easter everyone.

and I thought I was holding the show up :p:eek::eek:

Flies will be posted this evening on my way home. Apologies in advance for them being a bit a rough but they're tied to mainly end up in trees on dark gloomy evenings, and maybe catch the odd fish :rolleyes::rolleyes:

Mine will be in the post tomorrow, apologies for delay if it's me. Had the doubles tied for a couple of weeks but kept getting 'Frankenhead' on the singles. Hope they look ok now.

No problem Dean, you're not the last! Canewizard's tend to take longer in the post as they come from Germany, but shouldn't be long before you get your first flyswap set to give a swim :D

Whilst on, can I just remind everyone that if you catch a fish on one of the flies from the swap remember and post, would make someone's day ;)

Bad news gents, Dean's flies were sent last week but haven't arrived so would seem to have got lost
in the post (or my postie who also fishes has knicked them :p).

Have spoken to Dean and rather than hold things up further whilst he ties another set you will each receive just 9 flies this time, or 10 if I can dig out some spare shrimps.

Shame for Dean as its his first swap and I know he'll have spent a lot of time tying his set, but at least he and everyone else gets a a cracking set of flies to fish through the summer.

Got a note through door yesterday from PO re a parcel that the full postage hadn't been paid on and lo and behold it's Dean's flies, so we have the full complement! Will get them sorted and sent out asap, probably weekend before I get time.
