    Guys, hope you don't mind, but I switched my pattern to a Steelhead Caddis. I had just tied up a bunch of speys for the face to face swap and decided that I was in the mood to try something new and different for me.

    I think that's great. Seems like we're short on the dry flies.

    Heard from everyone so it looks like it'll be a full set that goes out on the 12th.

    Boxed up and ready to go. They will be dropped off at the PO on Saturday AM.

    I'll email everyone a delivery confirmation # this weekend.

    I'm picking up a new(to me) cataraft Saturday AM and hope to try some of these out on my first float Sunday morning!

    Not quite - we went 11 for 12 so everyone will get an extra one of their own flies back.
