    I'm just glad everyone is working on them. I just wanted to touch base more than anything. I have only gotten my first set done.

    Now, I feel like an OVER-ACHIEVER ;). Just finished my 3rd set and printing up my tags. I will send my flies out in couple of days.

    I tied some Renegades and will do some Stimulators, just because those are the most productive for me on my local river "formerly known as the trash can".

    Done and in the mail! Sorry Eric if they were supposed to get to you by the 25th. I had it in my head to get them in the mail then. So sorry if I goofed that up.

    I'm still learning, and definitely learned some new things tying my flies for this swap. I'd love to get any feedback you have on my flies. Be as critical as you need to be I know my flies are far from perfect. PM me if you want. image.jpg

    I like the cross-wrapping on the fuzzy foam caddis. Maybe the hair wing is too long? Would have to see how it floats. Great work, both will catch fish for sure.

    Thanks Darryl. Yeah, I still struggle with getting the proportions right. I've definitely gotten better with tying and reading, but maybe a class would be the next thing to help with that.

    They look nice and don't worry about them being a few days late if they are. Things come up and I don't think anyone is sweating it and better to get them sent a little late then not at all but I think they will be here in a day or two. So don't sweat it!!!

    Thanks. Feel free to keep the extra, I got carried away filling my stone box so have plenty. I'm sure that the others wouldn't mind if you took theirs out and got some mojo on them, too!
