    I finished my CDC Shuttlecocks this morning and received Cranny's Klinkhammers in today's mail so I've got flies in hand now from half the guys who've signed up. The list in the first post in this thread is updated as of today.

    Here's who's left:

    Steve S
    JesseJames
    Halcyon
    Gridkid
    Preston
    FlylikeIdo

    If I get the remaining flies before the January 31 deadline, I'll send 'em out then.

    Emerger swap update

    I received Preston's Chopaka emergers in today's mail so I've got flies in hand now from seven of the guys who've signed up plus heard from two more whose flies are in the mail meaning that all but three are either in hand or on the way.

    The list in the first post in this thread is updated as of today.

    Here's who's left:

    Steve S
    JesseJames
    Gridkid

    How are you guys coming along? There's still plenty of time before the deadline but if I get your flies before then, I'll send 'em out that much sooner.

    Emerger swap update

    I was hoping that we could wrap this swap up early as everyone has been so prompt in turning their flies in. But sadly flylikeido's flies appear to have been lost in the mails. SInce they were mailed from neighboring Kirkland over a week ago, we're not holding out much hope for them and so he's busy tying nmew ones which he hopes to have to me by the weekend. Once I get the new flies (or the old ones finally arrive after their trip to Argentina) I'll divide 'em all up and send them out.

    Emerger swap update - I've got everyone's flies now!

    Got 'em all divided up and ready for tomorrow's mail. Very nice bunch of flies as I hope you'll all agree. A special thanks to Randy Diefert for so generously tying THREE separate patterns for each of us and another special thanks for those of you who contributed extras for the Swapnazi.

    Flies are all in today's mail. Local guys should get theirs tomorrow. Randy, I included the tape in your envelope.

    Thanks again to all for a wonderful swap. You've all given me some interesting ideas for new patterns.

    Say, my digital camera doesn't take closups very well and the scans I made from earlier swap flies didn't turn out well. Does anyone wanna volunteer to take some pics of these guys and post 'em in the Gallery?

    Kent,

    Someone needs to check the record books. A swap that is wrapped up early! That's got to be a first.

    If no one minds, I'll do the photo duties for this one. Vickie got me a new Nikon for being such a wonderful husband and I love using it for fly photo's. Actually, now that I think about it, the first pics I took with that camera were VEE's spider pics. Hmmmm, maybe that wonderful husband stuff was a smokescreen.
