    Here's the deal! i haven't heard from gitto wales in a couple of weeks or received his flies yet for the swap. the deadline was june 30th which was a couple of weeks ago. i understand that things take a little longer when shipped from overseas, but i have tried to pm him about the flies and have heard nothing. unless there are objections i will give it till the end of next week to either hear from him or his flies and then i will assume that we are not getting them and will send everybody else their flies.

    The flies are divided up. since i never heard from or received gitto wales's flies everybody will get an extra set of someone elses flies. ifthere are any objections then let me know. i will have them sent out this week.

    Got the flies. Right on time for some serious summer fishing!

    Some very impressive flies! Hard to pick any favorites. I'll have fun fishing them all.

    Thanks Mike and all involved!
