    Actually, I live in Tacoma, and I still haven't gotten the flies... :( Considering I was one of the tiers on the the hind teat, I suppose it's divine retribution! :)

    None the less, I'm *REALLY* excited to get the flies from you guys. I think I'm going to spend most of the time figuring out how everyone got such nicely finished flies, rather than fishing them! :p :p :p

    With great excitement I opened the long anticipated pack that I Knew was due at any moment. I am speachless (not according to my wife). All the ties are breathtaking. Everyone did a fantiatic job. My thanks to Davy for hosting the swap. :thumb: Look forward to some fishy water here real soon.

    Got the flies, and I was *really* impressed. There are few in there that my wife wants to actually put in a recessed frame and keep as art :p As you can guess, I won't be fishing with those :)

    Thanks to everyone, and I hope that we can get a group like this together again! That was flat out awesome!

    Am I the last one getting the box?:rolleyes:
    I must admit I don't want to use them... Most likely they will be attempted to be copied, and the clones will be used...
    Great Job everyone! :beer2:
