    Roadhog,

    Uh, Pink? Is there anything you want to share with us? Just kidding.

    Road and Ned, have you guys contacted Denny for your chicken fur yet? He was telling me he was waiting for you guys.

    Road and Ned, cool, glad to hear you got ahold of him. (No, Road, you can't go back for more unless it's on your dime.)

    Got an e-mail from Davpot. He got snowed under by taxes and his flies for this month fell through the cracks. Wants to roll them over till next month. Fine by me, he's usually way early with his flies.

    James Mello and Mark Ritari have their flies in the mail system. Knowing USPS they could be in Florida, taking in some sun before heading to Yelm.

    Have not had a response to my PM from Gmbjr. Last e-mail said he was still in the swap and his November flies and streamers would be in this month. We'll see.

    Pictures of all the flies will be up as soon as Mark's and James' flies arrive. Good looking streamers, guys.

    My feathers came in the mail today. Awesome! I am going to have to get hooks small enough and a new vise to do some of these things justice! I love that fact that (unlike other necks I have seen) they include some of the lateral feathers that should make great soft hackles. Can't wait to tie with them.

    Thanks again Ron,
    Ned

    Ned, Wait till you wrap one on a hook. That's when they really shine. You do get your money's worth with Denny's feathers.

    Mark and Mulligan, yup, got your flies. James Mello's flies are in the postal system somewhere. Probably be here Monday. He did offer to bring them by on Friday, but I was gonna be gone.

    I have dropped Gmbjr from the swap. Even though he e-mailed me that he wanted to stay in the swap, no flies have arrived and no response to my last PM.

    Looks like there will be a few extras for the guys who stick it out. Flies will be mailed and pics posted as soon as James' flies arrive.

    Great looking streamers.
