    Just checking in to see how things are going on this swap. Is everyone getting close to having their flies tied?

    Things, I think, are coming along. We could have shortened the fly tying time, but, remember I was giving guys some time to do their Spring fly fishing fever? OK. I decided on a feeble attempt at a dry Red Dragon, rather than a nymph. How's everyone doing? Did I PM everyone my address? :thumb:

    Too bad.... Sorry to have Curtis drop out. I don't consider this a fly tying contest, so I wish he would have gone ahead and sent them. This means we have a total of 7 tiers if I can count right. I am missing Daryle Holmstrom's flies which have not arrived in the mail, perhaps Saturday???? I will then take photographs and get them in the mail ASAP.

    OK. I have received ALL the flies from those that "stuck with it" and gott'em done! :thumb:
    There ended up being a total of (7) tiers. Daryle's arrived in the mail today. Those are "hairy" dragon nymphs! So, I just finished with taking pictures of those, reviewed photos, and made some choices. I need to load them, but probably need to talk with Chris first. I will attempt to get them in the mail tommorow if I can. Regardless, you should have them by Friday I would assume. It's been a pleasure. There are some unique flies here. Thanks everyone for hanging in there! :) :thumb:

    Hi All. Photos have been posted in the gallery. Flies in the mail in the morning. I couldn't figure out the gallery and how to post the name of the fly and tier at the same time, so I put the names in the comment section.... :thumb:

    Your fly is awesome Fly Punk! I like'm! Thanks. I'm disappointed we couldn't get more tiers. That really surprised me because there are many options for this fly.
