    Davy,

    I apologize if my message came off condescending since that wasn't my intent. I have had issues with the post office lately putting my mail in anothers box, so it was more for my re-assurance that they were delivered correctly.

    The Florican Bustard was a very pretty site and you were very generous with your offering. I will tie up a very nice Jock Scott this weekend and if I can get pics avail, I will post.

    All the flies were very well tied and it was great to see some very nicely tied patterns come in the mail. I just have one issue though, I don't want to risk sacrificing one of these flies to river gods.

    PS. Cameron thanks for posting the terrific pics!!!

    Davy thanks for the special gift, I tied this fly with the bustard you sent. I was going to save it for some full dress salmon flies but changed my mind. I hope you can find some relief. This was a great swap and I am happy to have been a part of it. Best wishes and thank to you Davy and to all the participated.
