    I recieved my dry flies in the noon mail, they all look great!

    I am putting my November flies in the mail tomorrow

    Ron thanks for hosting this endeavor and thanks to everyone for getting your flies in on time. I can't wait to try them all out.

    I was especially impressed with the flies from Lefty, Vickie and Theron. Ron, I wish we had that bonus fly with us that day on the Cowlitz.

    Looking forward to a nice box of wet flies after Thanksgiving

    Warren, Yup, that fly would have been the ticket all right. That's the fly I have caught all three steelhead on last month.

    Looking forward to the wet ones. Everyone is doing a great job on the tying, which makes it pleasant for everyone. Getting all the flies in on time makes my job so much easier, so everyone is on the ball there too.

    Thanks all, a wonderful selection of flies!

    I received 2 of one pattern. If you did not get a toe tagged fly called "Liquid Lace" - shoot me your address and I will forward it to you.

    Surf Candy,

    You guys were so generous with the extra flies, I kinda spread them out randomly, hence some got an extra fly. (Actually I stood back a step or two and tossed them at the paper cups with your names on them that I use to sort the flies. Those that had an extra land in their cup got to keep it.) I also made sure I had a couple copies of the extras for my own box.

    What a great swap, It was almost like Christms or my b-day getting a box of flies in the mail!! All the flies look great, except for mine :beathead: but I'll keep on triing, I can't wait to get next months flies, mine aren't done yet, it take about 30 tries to get enough good flies to send. Thanks to Ron swap meister supreme
