    I thought Mikes flies were the ones that got used for testing and ended up lost in a fly box someplace.;) Sounds like a good swap, and I am looking fwd. to seeing the pics. when the swapmiester is up to it.

    ok, so James' flys are on the way, and Flybill has informed me his will be finished by Saturday and to me by Monday or Tuesday-(health issue prevented finishing last week for him) given that,, by this time next week the flies should all be in the mail and perhaps even to you depending on your location.

    Ok, started getting pics up in our gallery file, (got 2 in so far) I wish they could be higher resolution, but since I live in the dark ages here within the Indian reservation ,dialup is all I get and pics have to be kept low-res (very low res).

    Have had a bit of a setback and will know more Monday. But the flies will go out at any rate.

    thanks gang

    Hey gang, Warren came up with a better mousetrap- as soon as Flybills flies get to me I will send out the selections- Warren will do the rest of the pics in higher quality than I can when he gets his pile - for better pictures on the board--sounds good to me

    Thanks for the well wishes! It's been a tough month dealing with 3 major gout attacks and some new issues this past weekend.

    I wish I hadn't procrastinated so much and brought this down to the wire. The flies that have been posted so far look great! Make sure to post recipes for them!

    Thanks,
    Bill
