    Nice Ed!

    Those should work well in the salt, and the bead on the end would make it a good steelhead pattern too!

    Arthur's flies arrived yesterday afternoon. Nice job, Arthur. We're waiting for a couple more and ten I'll return them. Looks like everything is going well. Thanks, guys.

    It looks as though all flies are here now. I got Connor's and Steve's today. I'll start the process of repacking them and try to get them out early in the week. Nice work guys!

    To all who have participated, thanks. I packaged and mailed all flies at t he UPS store this morning. You should have them in a couple of days. You will see that I returned the additional fly for Logan since he was unable to participate. I didn't feel right about keeping them though I have to admit, they looked sooooo good that I was tempted. I'm looking forward to another swap in the future. Great job and enjoy the flies. Don't forget to pinch those barbs.

    Just got my flies. Man you guys outdid yourselves. I can't wait to fish these beautiful bugs. Thanks to Steve for hosting. This was my first swap and it was a neat experience, I will be joining more.

    Eric T., The pink stuff is Spirit River Super Hair. I picked it up at Peninsula Outfitters in Poulsbo. Glad you like it. I hope they catch fish.
    Thanks again,
    Eric

    Kudos to all for getting the flies in early and to Steve for getting them back right away! Now all that's left to do is stare at all of these tasty flies and dream about pinks for another month and a half!
