First let me know if I missed your name!

Second, contact your paired member by the message center on this site. Exchange mail addresses and make any other arrangements the two of you want to make, such as swapping more than one fly, setting a later swap date, or whatever works for the two of you.

Third, mail the fly(s)

Fourth, receive the fly(s).

Here we go, randomly paired:

McKinneyLonghorn & Bruce Mc

keebranch & Flying Fox

Mitt78 & Linecaster

TioPick & MassAction

mbarker68x & RedFlyTX

joabsher & Lloyd5

Merry Christmas Y'all! Now start swappin!

Got Bruce Mc's flies in yesterday and they look great. Two deceivers, two clousers and two gurglers. I fish deceivers and clousers a lot so these will get good use, and once it warms up the gurglers should work great (haven't fished them too much before).

I received flies from McKinneylonghorn. Some really nice stuff. I'm looking forward to using the Llano bugs on the bluegill beds this spring. The Rabbit Bugger Jigs and the Soft Hackles look cool too. I've never fished with a jig on a fly rod. I think I'll be using the Soft Hackles as a trailer on the Llano bug.

Glad they arrived! Fishing them below hoppers is way I fish the soft hackles. Usually the sunfish take the soft hackle but the aggressive ones smoke the hoppers.

Well, Bruce, your Clouser minnow catches fish. This is the first white bass of the day on the Brazos River below Lake Whitney. Thanks again!

So when I hit post the pictures will appear like magic. Much like the Monk in the Zerox commercial.. It's a Miracle

Super late here but wanted to say thanks to Lloyd for putting this together and for the awesome flies he sent me. Can't wait for some slightly warmer weather to get into the creeks and rivers around Austin and sling these things around!
