    Tradition! That box has been swapping flies for over a year now! I even rip off old tape ever three swaps or so.
    If you noticed, I did get a second box for the terrestrials since the "box" was out on the blind man swap. I will consider sending the new box with the emergers. No promises:)

    For some reason, I'm the only one that's not like the others! It is in the mail though and will be in REE's hands by Sat...

    The last set of flies was waiting for me when I got back from the river on Saturday afternoon. They are all sorted, photo'd, posted in the gallery and will be in the mail on Monday morning as we are heading to the Hospital.

    My apologies to all for this swap running so late.

    Oops, almost forgot. My thanks to Warren Perry and Daryle Holmstrom for tying extra flies for all of us to enjoy.

    Got mine today. Great flies from everyone! Can't believe we didn't get at least one griffen's knat!

    Great swap and just the excuse I needed to go get a special fly box for micro hooks!:beer2:

    Ned, see, there's always a good reason to do a swap. Now you get a new fly box. Check out those really expensive C&F boxes. (snicker, snicker)

    Good pictures are easy when the flies look that good. Talented folks in this swap.

    Got my flies today. Never fails, just when i think I am getting good at tying flies, I get a set back like these and I am humbled by the talent out there.

    Thanks to all the tiers and thanks to REE for hosting a First Class Swap

    PS, that #32 brassie is sick...
