  1. Don't worry about the extra postage Jeremy. I'll let you know when they get here.

  2. 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.
     
  3. I think that's great. Seems like we're short on the dry flies.

  4. Thanks for the kind words Thomas. Hope all of you guys enjoy the ties.
     
  5. Gentlemen:

    I'm letting loose my swarm of bees on Wednesday.

  14. Where are we at with the swap? Everyone's flies in?
     
  15. 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!

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