    They are being held ransom until this rain stops!! Nah, but really they were supposed to go out on tuesday but some dead president closed all the p.o's. and I work during the time any of them are open. So without a doubt they are going out in the AM tomorrow.

    I tied an extra dozen to cover some guys one of the guys we lost, and I also grabbed another dozen right from my winter boxes to cover the other guy we lost in the swap.

    Hopefully some of us will actually get the chance to use them soon.
    :beer2: :beer2:

    Anyone have a camera that will take pics up close for the swap gallery?

    Yeah, sweet looking flies. Now, just curious, did we not get one of our own back? I'm only asking because I don't want to have screwed anyone over. Anyway, nice looking flies, maybe they'll work in my cul-de-sac...

    Willie, I sent one of the extra sets of flies off to scoones, the other extra's I will end up giving to some group (flyclub/boyscouts) that need them, say for a raffle or auction.

    Speaking of the Quality aspect of this swap. If anyone has any "malfunction" with any of the flies I tied in the next couple years. Send it back to me and I'll replace it with 3.

    I will not Guarantee my flies if they fall apart becasue you catch too many fish on them!

    All the flies look awesome! Good Work.

    Well I'll give my kudos to backyard any day, he tied up to extra sets which I believe some expense judging by the material. Unlike mine they seem to be bulletproof. So a toast to the yard for a great swap.

    I did both the single eggs. They do break, but not that often, I've probably broken a a dozen in 2 years.
