    Hey Clint what did you think about the fly’s? This is my first swap, so just looking for some constructive criticism. I wasn’t sure how long to make the jelly rope or flash so I left it long so guys can trim it as they like. Also wasn’t sure how to package the fly’s hope that was ok.

    Annie,

    The flies look great. I think they will catch a lot of fish. I thought the jelly rope was a good length, and a good idea to let everyone trim it down to their own length. As for the way you packaged them it looked good. Once we swap look for others oppinions when everyone recieves them. Over all you did a great gob for your first swap ( great flies, well packaged, done on time, and return postage was included).

    Man, they're just flies but I know they will fish. That's all that's important.

    My flies are packaged and heading to the PO today.
    Ended up tying the Professor a pattern that for me fished well for coastal cutts in B.C.

    Ah crap. Hey guys, I'm in a bit of a financial funk right now and have been bustling to figure things out and I know this is a late notice, but I may have to bow out of this one.
    My apologies everyone!

    I have all the flies now. I have a scholarship presentation this weekend so wont be able to ship the flies. I will get them sorted and shipped early next week. I will let everyone know when they are shipped. I will keep the extras unless you guys want them back. Let me know.

    I think it is a good idea that you get the extras Clint.

    Thank you NomDeTrout for letting us all know so we weren't needlessly waiting.

    Can't wait to see everyone's flies.
