    They'll be in the mail tomorrow; possibly by tonight.

    I would like to personally apologize that my flies will not be part of this batch. I mailed them out on Saturday but something happened with how they were scanned and they were returned to me on Monday. I told steeli to not worry about waiting for mine if he thought it better to just turn them around as soon as possible. I still have them all tied if anyone wants to chime in on second swap. I know these are tried and true patterns and on my two fly rig up they are always the two flies I start with.

    Sorry again guys.

    Ira..

    Returned yesterday from a good long weekend of tracking down trout.
    Some midge action, and other bugs fooled them too.

    I'll get the pictures completed and posted this week.
    Ira, if you run another swap you can count me in.
    I was test driving a blood worm pattern that worked pretty well...
