    Well it looks like I'm wating for the snail mail, seems like everyone sent their pattern but I'm waiting for them to show up. Once they are here I can post photos and divy them up. The few extras I'll hand over to my grandson, He is so excited to see what flies I get in mailbox everyday. LOL

    And off they go... Just so you know I believe in the idea that uglier flies represent an easier meal (wounded, outcast etc.) and my flies reflect that ! :clown:

    I left the flies at home and forgot to mail them yesterday. Please forgive me for my sins! At worst case, I'll get them out via the mail tommorow. But if I get home early enough for work, I'll drop them by the late night tacoma post office....

    They are getting done. Changed patterns though. Too much hackle breakage and tooooo much time to tie the others (simiseal buggers). Modified the pattern. Working too much overtime. Twentyfour hours already this week.:eek: :eek: :thumb:

    Done. Tagged. Boxed. Return mailing lables and postage included. Extra flies for the meister. In the mail this afternoon! Please find a different color background when you take the picture if you can or you might not see the bugger.:thumb:

    OKay! Probably have them by the 15th and mailed them back to you guys the next day. Think I should have used a lighter background for some of them. The light tent I bought had three, black, blue, and red. Might try a different color with the dutchmans:) Have some picnic plates out with everyones name on it to divy them up. All in all it been fun hosting this swap, no worries about any shipping etc. I still have to tie a couple of more because my grandson decided he needed them before you guys, go figure. :)

    Nice picture of my fly. That background complements it very nicely and lets you see the all the detail that is in the dubbing. Thanks for hosting the swap.:thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
