    I've got just a couple more to tie now. Will get them done over the weekend if all goes well and should have them in the mail Tuesday...that is the plan anyway.

    Flies are all done! I'll get them out in the mail tomorrow (05/26).

    Hey Ed, were your ears ringing on Sunday afternoon? I was sitting at Mora in Kingston, and I think I saw you drive by, right as I was talking to my wife about the Face to Face Fly Swap.

    I picked up Matt Smith in the AM from the ferry but did not return to that area until late evening. Next time we have a face to face meet and greet bring the misses along. We don't cuss that much and some of us are kind of funny (looking).

    Funny looking is an understatement.....for God's sake man, put some clothes on!! You lose another bet or something? I was out of town last week and I come home to a NAKED MUMBLES, scary. I will get my butt in gear and get the bugs done in a day or two.

    Steve, flies are in the mail! You should get them in a day or two. Now we just need to wait for the pinks to show up.

    Soon enough. Patience is the friend of the flyfisher. Your arms will be worn out by the time it's over.

    Got flies from Matt and Ed last evening. Great looking flies, guys. A sad note: Logan (PEI Fishfinder) has had to drop due to a death in the family. I'll send back his flies when I send yours to you. Can't wait to see the remaining patterns and we could do a meet, greet, and fish when the fish get in.

    I sentim out yesterday. I couldn't make it to usps so I had to send itthrought an envelope. I just didn't want it to be late. If you choose to send it back through a package and all, then tell me re price and I'll send you the money for it.

    And I'd like to get in on the fish and greet if you guys don't mind talking a teen with you. :)
