    Thanks again all. This swap was a real pleasure. And thanks REE for volunteering to take the pics. I can't wait to see 'em.

    A client/fishing buddy was just over to talk business and noticed I had the swap flies arranged on a board so I could admire them. He's an accomplished tyer but just gushed about how good these patterns were and how bad he felt for not joining. 'Oh well', I told him . . .

    Hey Kent,
    Thanx for the great swap. This was my first. Is it to much to dream that they will all be this smooth. I hope not. Can't wait to see what comes back. Thanx for the extras Randy.

    The flies arrived about 45 minutes ago. Kent, I don't blame your buddy for getting all gushy. These are some nice looking flies. The pics should be up in the swap gallery this afternoon. For the benefit of those not in the swap maybe we could all post the recipe for the flies. If the fly is toe tagged with the tiers name I'll include that. If it's a loose fly you'll have to claim it as your own.

    Thanks to all the participants for tying for this one, and a special thanks to Kent for running such a smooth swap. Nicely done.

    Jesse,

    Nikon Cool-Pix 4800. Very nice macro capability. It focuses to within 4/10ths of an inch. The back ground is blue matte board that VEE uses to mat her paintings and such. She gave an 11 X 14 piece of blue, green and white to use as a background. If you like I can post a picture of my set up.

    I got the Coolpix 3200 for Christmas, I really like it too. I am getting good fly pics but I don't have the lighting quite figured out yet. I am getting heavy shadows on some of the shots. You can see what I mean if you look at the Articulated leech swap pix in the gallery. I am still experimenting. :confused:

    I received my flies yesterday in the mail, right before heading off to school to teach. All I can say is "right on!!". These flies are great, and the diversity of the patterns only give me more ideas for what I can attempt to tie. Thanks for such a good swap everyone. Thanks again to Kent for starting the swap and thanks go to Ron for the sweet pics.
