    Just to let you guys know that I'm still around... I'll be tying my flies over the holidays and I hope to get them shipped out by the 1st or 2nd. If this is going to crimp anyones style, let me know and I can try to bump up the schedule a bit :)

    Also, those flies look pretty darn smoooove ;)

    -- Cheers

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news davpot, but this swap is long since closed. 1/2 the flies have already been sent in.

    Wayne got his flies in, rrrrreal purdy ones too!!!

    I have an issue thats come up, I am having some surgery on the 12th and will not be moving too well on the 15th-16th I am sure. I live in the Everett area and if I could get a volunteer to help me sort all the flies and get them mailed out it would be much appreciated. Anyone near here?

    thanks , now go fish ( oh, and get your flys tyed too )

  15. Jest about done here, couple more to do and I dang ran out of stuff. But I'll hit the store tomorrow and have em' all done up this weekend, and mailed out early next week. After I go fishing of course since most rivers have fallen back in shape.
