    I got hedburners flies yesterday, going to give folks until the 15th then divy up what I got and send them out. Those of you still with flies due, please try to get them in by then.

    I've sent PM's to everyone who needs to send in flies.

    I think everyone who is going to get their flies in, got their flies in. Thanks guys. I am going to photograph and mail them out tomorrow or Wednesday. Appreciate the effort!!

    Flies have been sorted and photographed, will be shipping them out tomorrow. I kept the few extras folks sent in just in case there are late-comers in shipping to the swap, if not I'm gunna keep em the re-stock my collection! :)

    Since I'm heading to turks and caicos soon I've been tying up some bonefish flies and included one in each persons package as a thank you.

    Appreciate all the effort you guys put forth.

    Cheers,
    Ibn

    Thanks for hosting the swap Ibn and thanks to everyone that got their flies in on time. Sorry for waiting so long to get my flies in, I hope the marabous and extra pattern for everybody made up for it. I can't wait to see the flies!

    Good job everyone. I enjoyed finally seeing the famed shock and awe up in person, and the orange General Practitioner is fantastic. When do we get the pictures so everyone else can see these great flies?

    Is anybody posting pictures of these fine flies? I would do it, but I think my camera (and my camera skills) would pale in comparison to what the others could do...
