    Sweet, can't wait to see them all in my fly box with all the pink steelies, big nasties and speys I hope to get wet soon.

    Fart. Running out of mailing days for me to get some green butt skunks before heading to the Hoh Down. I even left a section for them in my big fly box.

    Ed, I couldn't agree more. The expectation of receiving mine by Tuesday is dismal at best. It chaps my ass that someone would commit to a date and then have a brain fart is inexcusable..unless there were circumstances beyond whatever. This is my first swap, and may reconsider another. This blows..but I guess better than those in the Spey/Dee swap but who knows. For anyone considering hosting on of these things, me included, communication is key. Commo, commo, commo. Nuff said.

    Not sure what happened to be honest. Tod finished his set early, so not sure where his package is currnetly.

    Here is what I can do. I can hand deliver or express ship 2 sets to Mumbles (one for fodf) which you guys can split at the Hoh Down...
    Or if anyone else is headed out to the Hoh Down, I can do the same, if Mumbles is willing.

    That works for me if Ed is amenable. Chris, I won't be anywhere near Seattle to meet up for mine. So if this works, outstanding

    ALright fellas, Sorry about all the mix up. I have them all divided up and ready to ship out. Looks like we are going to be short 1 however :/

    Tod Fosetta has not replied yet but figured most of you guys prob want the flies sooner than later, so I've put in a couple flies from my personal collection for everyone to enjoy, in replacement of the one missing.

    Thanks everyone!
