I mailed to the mailing address that Randy pm'ed to me. He confirmed that they arrived.teach wrote: 1) Just confirming that we should mail our flies (to Randy's pm'd address) along with another self-addressed postage paid envelope, correct?
I put my flies in an Altoid tin. This is the same container that your return flies will arrive in, so something that provides some protection for the flies, especially dry fly hackles, is helpful. Might be a good idea to label the container with your name too. I put the Altoid tin in a self-addressed, postage paid bubble wrap envelop. Then put that in a larger bubble wrap envelop addressed to Randy. Postage was $3 for the inner envelop and another $3 for the outer envelop.teach wrote: 2)Those of you who have done it in the past have you just used the bubble envelopes from the post office and put your flies in a ziploc bag or something?
Guess I'm not the best one to answer! But I use Google Photos to host the photo and then reference the photo via URL in an "img" tag. The problem I have is getting the right security / privacy settings on the photo in Google and getting the right URL so that the photo is visible elsewhere. Sometimes the photo is visible to me, but not others (as seems to be the case with the fly swap photo). I modified the Google Photo settings and URL this am, so hopefully the photo is visible now?teach wrote: 3) What is the best way to post pictures on this forum? I want to post my recipe/photo. I have tried a couple methods in other posts in the past but they seem rather clunky (saving the file to computer, adjusting size of pics, shrinking file size, etc.). Also it seems that sometimes I can't see others' pics (for example, at the time of this post, I can't see your Skinny Nelson picture you posted last week, jrs). I know there has been some discussion of this somewhere in the past, but wondering if anyone has settled on a reliable method? WFF, if you're reading this, I can always see your pics and they look good, what's your method?
We dd this 2 years ago. It was kind of fun to see people in person, but we didn't have a great turn out. It's pretty far to go for those that are in the twin cities metro area which I would guess is about half the group. I'd be willing if others are interested, but understand if they're not. Alternatively, maybe we could arrange an informal on-stream meet some time?teach wrote: 4) Last call on trying the LTS get together...? Maybe I should just take the hint that it's not going to work for most... It's just that I love beer and have these empty Howlers...
