    Pardon my absence everyone, eastcoast family business called.
    Our wise swapmeister has titled this swap "proven SRC swap." So within that parameter I'm going to reach way back in time to a fly that's been catching SRC and other trout since 1883. A west coast variant of the midwest's fly designer Charles McGinty, the "McGinty Soft Hackle (spider)." I've had good success in our areas rivers and coastline with this pattern. You'll want to tie a few and have them in your flybox. If you do, they will likely be the most proven fly you'll own/fish.

    Mailed mine on the tenth lf you don't have them by tues. I wil tie some more and fed ex or ups. My flies from Irafly (swap) took ten days to get 20 miles to my house. I'm expecting another package mailed priority on march seventh, starting to lose faith in our mail system. Can't rule out that I messed up the address
    Its starting to feel they are out to get me though. Doug

    Hi all,

    Thanks for getting these done so promptly. I've updated the list of what i've received, but have a mystery- Floyd from AZ sent me some improved easy beetles, but didn't indicate what his WFF screen name is. Floyd, please pm me to ID.

    And Doug your faith can be restored in the USPS I got your gorgeous flys.

    Thank you all for your contributions- this is shaping up to be a great swap!!

    All right all, we are getting close to the end of the month. With March 1 approaching fast...
    A couple of you (not to name names- Annie) need a reminder...
    All kidding aside, thanks for participating and being so prompt with these- the flys look great!

    Flies are "in the mail". Lady at the mail counter asked me if I had any hazardous material in the package and I answered "only if you're a trout"!
