    Flies are on their way. DDS is going to see the same fly that I tied from another swap that we're both in, but I think this one is an improvement over the first one.

    I'm almost done. I had a difficult time picking a pattern, so it took me awhile to get started.

    I just got gotchasr and marty's flies today. you 2 tie a mean fly. we are now just waiting on luckybalboas and then that will be it. DDS had to bail cause he sent his flies but the packaged was ripped open when i got it so the flies were gone and he didn't have time to tie up another set so everyone will be getting some of thiers back. as soon as i get luckys i will send them out

    I think we should send some to DDS. It sucks that the USPS screwed things up for him.
