I thought that we were up to 11 tiers? Did some people drop out?
Dang Guys. Sorry, the couint is 11. That's what happens when you talk to your wife and post at the same time. Apologies to one and all.
e-mail or PM headed out on Monday.
Ok well im thinking for the wet fly this month i'm gonna do Lord Baltimore ....it's another new fly for me to tie so will be fun i think itll be sz 14 or 16 not sure which wet fly hooks i have in my inventory atm
hey ya all, i agree with ned on this one. a box of great flies is always a nice suprise. the bills can wait while i look at flies. hey i got a nice peacock soft hackle for ya all. i'll tie a dozen up. thanx for the great flies.

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!
Hooks are wrapped and will be put in the mail tomorrow.
There goes Anyfish, again. Making the rest of us look like a bunch of underachievers. Great Job, Chris, looking forward to seeing your flies.
Chris, Your flies arrived yesterday afternoon, but our power has been out since 2:00 yesterday afternoon, so I couldn't tell ya. Nice looking flies.
Hello Ronn et al: I shipped my Red Headed Black Gnats off last week, so hopefully you will recieve them shortly. This should be a great swap!:thumb:
Yup, they arrived yesterday while I was gone. Great looking flies.
Your flies arrived today. Nicely done.
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,
My flies went out priority mail today. Should be there tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest.

never send another for what you should do yourself ...
I'm slackin. I have almost all of my as-of-yet-unamed steelhead flies tied and they will be in the mail tomorrow. Normally would be there thurs for sure, but snow might slow them down? Just a heads up.
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.
In the post today, going priority mail.... Tied up 13 carey's specials. Hopefully they'll pass muster....
James, Casrey specials. Great fly.
Ned, your flies arrived safe and sound. Getting a crowbar and jackhammer to get into the package now.
Made it in the mail today. The post "master" told me they would make it to ya tomorrow. I don't know if I believe the hype. But, hopefully they do!
Full mail box today guys. Flies arrived from Roadhog, Mulligan, Calvin1 and James Mello. Great looking flies guys.
