    Hey Ron,

    Can I still get in on the Tax Day swap? I just got back from San Diego and haven't been checking the site.

    So, do I print out the recipe for each copy of the fly I am tying with my name on it, or just one copy?

    wbodger,

    If you print the recipe on the toe tags, do it for each one (really small font on the printer), but all you really need are you name and the name of the fly. Once the pics are up in the gallery you can post the recipe there.

    OK, this swap inspired me so I tied up 24 or so flies, got 12 toe-tagged and then decided I should finish my taxes before I sent the flies off (incentives are always good, right?). So, got the taxes done last night and the flies are going out today or tomorrow (depends on how nice my wife is feeling when she goes to the post office...). Now, I just need to get out and see if those flies work any different this week than last...

    Too cool! Two more sets of flies are on the way. I love it when things go off well.

    Looking forward to seeing those flies. Mine are done, tagged and ready, VEE still has to tag hers, but they are some sweet looking flies.

    Flies have arrived from Islander and WBodger. If these are any indicator of things to come, we'll have some nice fkies to add to our boxes when it's over. Nice work guys.

    Mike Doughty's flies arrived in the afternoon mail. Very nice looking flies. I'm gonna have to break out the magnifyer and tie some of these puppies. This just keeps getting better and better.

    Hey Folks,

    Sent out an e-mail this morning. As I was working my way down the list our Maine Coon cat decided to use my shin as a scratching post. Big cat=huge claws. In the pain of the moment I forgot where I was on the list. If you got the same e-mail twice, my apologies for filling up your mail box. It's not that I think you need an extra incentive, I was in excruciating pain.

    Now where is that peroxide and bandages?

    Mine are done, tagged and boxed. Will be in the mail tomorrow. Hopefully all the size 18's will stay on the tags. Had to debarb them to get the bead heads on. The 10's still have their barbs so they should stay. The leeches are an appropriate "cash" green. They are one of the "essential four" for Rocky Ford. :thumb:

    Mine are in the mail as of this morning. They're nothing special, but they catch fish.
