    Kelvin thank you for hosting it.

    And no, I don't need Larry's autograph because I already have it...

    You close guys will get the flies before they arrive in Moses Lake.

    Good participators are just as valuable as swap masters.

    And... if you don't believe this, run some swaps of your own and see who sends self addressed envelopes with the proper postage and toe tags their flies. Swaps are easy to run if everybody does this.

    Speaking of "dog at my homework" excuses, I want to apologize to Kelvin and everyone else again. I still haven't found those flies. May be small consolation to you folks that I can't even use them myself, but at least it's something.

    Received mine as well. Thank you everyone for the impressive ties, and thank you Kelvin for hosting.

    I'm kind of looking forward to the next time my usual patterns are being rejected and one of your patterns saves the day.

    There was one thing missing from my box of flies. No matter good I looked I could not find Larry's autograph.

    I was playing around the other day and wanted to see what a #24 soft hackle would look like. I found out... looks small like lint or a runty fruit fly.

    Have not received mine in the mail yet. Since moving, I haven't trusted the new mailman........I haven't received any "forwarded" mail since I moved 1-1/2 months ago. Spoke to both PO's about it also. Very strange. But Kelvin has my new address.

    Kelvin,

    I'm a bit curious as well. I know I invited you to keep any extra flies (those destined for folks who didn't complete the swap), but not all of the flies and the box. Did you send them? If you need my return address, shoot me a PM.
