    i wouldn't worry rick, if you sent 14 then it just means that you won't be getting one of yours back. when you send in the same amount as the participants you get one of yours back, this just makes the diving up process a little easier, nothing but a thang.

    Just as a heads up, I've got quite a few done, but not all of them. As I won't be able to make it to the post tommorow, are there any issues with my flies arriving on Tuesday or Wed?

    Sorry I'm late, but mine are going in a brown truck today. I started to tie a pattern of original design but ran out of materials and we were out of it at the shop so I was basically screwed. I should have counted my beads before I started. Swapmeister, I'll throw one in for ya though.

    Anyways, I stayed up until two last night to crank out 15 of my personal favorite steelhead pattern. Deschutes Madness. I hope that's okay with everyone.

    Fed X was suppossed to deliver some stuff I ordered today and we never saw the truck. Can you belive a week from LA?

    I'll hang for another couple days, everything will be easy to fix.
