    mine were mailed sat, so just waiting on hardworking and efficient gov't employees to deliever 'em to the swap meister. do to the process involved in making mine, a sort of tandem rig and partly tied on the connector, there's a bit of variability in my flies. regardless the are cool, and more than get the job done.
