    Hey TB,

    Put my streamers in the mail today. I did a John Barr Bouface variant, and a nasty piece of meat that I like to call the Incredible Sculp. Can't wait to see the rest!

    GO GREEN, GO WHITE, GO STATE!!

    mine should be there soon. Put them in the mail on Monday. TB, when you send them back in the return postage envelope i included, make sure you tape it up good. The box i sent is a little big so additional tape is needed. Thanks man!

    I just got mine in the mail on my way back to work. I have not yet fully examined them for all their perfect glory, but the through the clear fly box lid exam is very impressive. This is one packed and colorful box of goodies for sure. Thanks to all tyers and thanks to Tyinbugs for hosting yet another swap and letting me play along. Ed

    Where are you guys getting the black head cement? I hope to find some black and maybe red head cement but have only found flourescent colors, irredescents and clear. Maybe just hit the local GOTH or Twilight nail salon?

    This is by far the best swap I have been in. I will actually fish ALL of these flies... not just one or two like I have from other swaps. Thanks guys.
