    Yes te 5th has come and....Past.

    I want to apologize again to everyone even though I can not controll other peoples actions. I have wednesday and thursday off this week so I am planning on swapping and shipping one of those two days....with or without the other sets of flies. If the other flies do not show up each tier will still get a dozen flies. You will get some duplicates though.....

    I will try to keep everyone updated.

    Hosting a swap can be a lot like herding cats - seems like there's always at least one straggler. IMHO, you've done an admirable job of staying on top and communicating. Having hosted more than my fair share of swaps, I suggest you just mail out what you have and tough shit for the stragglers - when (or if) their flies finally come in, just mail them back to them in their SASE. The rest of us played by the rules so why should we all be held hostage by a few who chose not to?

    Update: I have swapped all flies that arrived on time. whits flies did not show up yet....so whit if they arrive i will turn them around and them back at ya.

    Also I did not add an candy to the packages for certain reasons i.e. melting, but I did add a packages of awesome opposom dubbing for everyone. There is 5 different colos so everyone got a random color....Should have them sent out tommorow.

    Just got my flies in the mail today! They are all outstanding! Nice job everyone. I think we should have waited for "Whits" flies since he put them in the mail in time. Oh well, we all learn. I did appreciate you posting your photo of your fly tho Whit. Nice.

    Not too shabby. I usually end up being disappointed, but you guys really did a great job.
