    Tried ordering some chironomids. Why can't I click on any of the pictures of the description? How do I order them?

    It's not you. I checked with the Hills Discount Flies folks, and they told me ALL OF THE FLIES ON THE SPRING CLEANING LIST ARE SOLD OUT!

    You guys bought all of the product! Hills said they sold out within 6 hours, I believe it was, of putting out the ad.

    Lame. I order on 27 March, I get a two confirmations via e-mail, and I get shorted SEVEN DOZEN flies on my order with the comment "OUT" hand written on the order form when the partial order shows up.

    So much for the comment that states: "This sale will last until the end of the work day on april 1st. Once a pattern is sold out we will remove the size or the pattern from the monthly specials."

    I tried to get some stuff off the 'spring cleaning' link but there were no hotlinks - couldn't put it into an order. All I could find were the 'sale items' which were a lot different than the original link. Bummer. I would have bought a bunch of stuff.

    I got 2 dozen but "out" on the other two. Still $6 shipping and half the flies. Oh well. Would have been nice to know they were out.

    I put in a huge order and got a small box today. I'm HAPPY that the nine dozen I got will keep me from having to tie those nine dozen. I'm saddened because now my dry boxes will be only a fraction of how full I thought they were before I got the OUT message on so many of my line items. I guess I'll have to schedule some tying time.

    Yeah, the flies I most wanted were all out.

    I still got 5 or 6 dozen at about $1.50 per doz, so no complaints.
