    Yeah, That's normally the case. These must have got screwed up in processing! It came sealed in a plastic bag with the "severe condolences" of the postal service, and the envelope was almost completely shredded!

    seems like the flies are in the mail, or soon to be. wanted to add a note for everyone on my dry fly. The pattern is a variation of the Bird’s stonefly. I did not have the bucktail that the pattern called for, so I substituted with deer hair. The pattern also calls for the forward hackle to be clipped both top and bottom. Everyone has their own way of clipping, so I left that for fly swap members to apply the finishing touches. i would just clip the bottom.

    Kim, your flies are great and are O.K. to be fished just like that! I really think this turned out to be a great swap and WE should all be proud of ourselves!

    i think in the winter trout swap i was the first to recieve flies and then it took a while after that for others to recieve theirs. Connor, you still need to take pictures of the flies and of the flies for the winter trout swap too.

    OK. this is getting a little dull here. as far as i can tell, most of us are still fly-less; however, i am willing to post the recipes and a couple of pictures - but i need help for the pictures. the last set i tried to take with my digital camera came out so fuzzy they were useless. what do i need to do to get decent pictures to post - besides getting a clue.

    37 days past the Due Date?? Am I correct? Has anyone tried to contact Conner? Has anyone received anything? Obviously Conner, you must take a lot of drugs? Can we help you with anything? Seriously? :hmmm:
