    I thought that we were up to 11 tiers? Did some people drop out?

    Hey Guys,

    Sorry about the late PM. Got struck down by an ear infection. Haven't had one since I was very little, close to 59 years ago. Man, those things hurt like hell. I will never again complain about a little kid crying with an ear infection.

    PM went out today with a reminder about the wet flies and a hint about the Christmas Contest. About that contest, you can't win if you don't enter. The first year I did this swap a beginner swapper won first place. Prizes will be for first second and third.

    Someone is tying a Lord Baltimore? Cool!

    There goes Anyfish, again. Making the rest of us look like a bunch of underachievers. Great Job, Chris, looking forward to seeing your flies.

    My flies went out in the mail this morning and should be in your box tomorrow.

    This is a great swap and I am learning a bunch. Sorry to those of you who will get a few of the early flies.:beathead: (I promise they look better than the rejects that are in my fly box) I did as Ron instructed and tried something new. That being said I am pretty proud of the last few.

    Thanks again Ron,
    Ned

    Whew, it's getting toward the end of the month and the mail box is looking pretty lonely. Glad to hear you guys are getting them in.

    Bee looking for a PM about the December Contest.
