    My Dad had a triple bypass two years ago...didn't even know he had a heart problem...long story short...he had 4 yards of mulch delivered to the house and it sat all winter, well it became a home for hornets. Needless to say while doing Spring/Summer yard work he stabbed the nest with a pitch fork. Got stung over a 100 times; which started to close is air way. My Mom got him in the car and started the 20 min. drive to the hospital, however, only got 10 min. out and noticed my father wasn't breathing...so she pulled into a firestation that was on the way.

    Dad was rushed to the hospital and during the ER visit they examined him and found the three blockages. Pretty much told him that if they didn't find these at that moment he most likely would have died very shortly.

    I think I was more concerned than he was! Pretty much recovered in two weeks and was back to gardening!

    The end result he is afraid of bees and damn near flips the canoe everytime we are out fishing Squalicome Lake! :+

    Tube Fly Swap update:

    Thus far I have received flys from the following:

    -Ibn
    -Philster

    (Great flies...wanted to take one each and give them a "swim" on the Skagit...but didn't }( )

    Anticipated:

    -Metalhead
    -Steelheader69
    -Lambchop

    If I don't have all by Wednesday I'll postpone sending whatever I have on Saturday. Unless Ibn and Philster don't have a problem with a 'few' (2-3 days) more?

    Let me know what's up.

    Andrew

    I'll tie mine up today and should have them out in mail tomorrow. Sorry, I missed the post where you answered how many flies we were going to tie. So thought it was on a backburner. Will crank them out today.

    I'm in no rush. Do your detective work and let us know.

    They are dead to me. I say we S***-List 'em. Two weeks late for sending in your flies is ridiculous, two weeks late with no communication from them is inexcusable
