    If you stick a fork in this swap, is it done yet?

    Eric, I believe that I have one set still in the mail. As soon as they arrive I'll get them out. Seems one of our mates had a bit of delay and needed another day to get them done.

    Hey Ed, did you get my flies? I would just like to apologize in advance, my prawns are different colors because I ran out of materials and live in the suckhole of places to buy fly tying material. That being said, they are all the same fly, and all of the color combos have caught me winter fish in one place or another. Also this is my first attempt at tubes, so figuring out head spacing was a challenge. Im stoked to see everyones ties!

    JS, I got yours on Monday, all good. I have one set that is due any time. Once they are here I'll turn them around quick to all participants.

    All flies are now in. I'll try to get them split up and mailed within the next day or two. For those that did not send postage it might take a day longer so I can make a trip to the post office. Sorry to keep you all waiting. I thought giving Bouface a couple of days would be worth it. I think his flies will prove worthy of the slight delay.

    Separated the flies for all tyers. Those that included return packaging and postage, your packs are ready to ship and I'll drop them in the box tomorrow. Those who forgot return packaging and shipping, I'll get yours out to you soon. You both owe me a beer or six! Fish them well all, post up some photos. No wild steelhead lifted or retained please. Thanks for some great swap flies. Photos to the gallery next.

    JS, no worries. I'll be looking forward to running into you out there. I'll get the flies out soon. Same addy you sent them from? Is it 201 or 207?

    Gotcha! It is early and my reading comprehension skills are always suspect. Now edit that stuff out of there before some shady cats knock on your door looking for some sick maribou fly fix.
