    glad to see they finally got there. I thought that FedEx was supposed to be if you absolutely had to get it there on time. :)

    Nope. Don just got the last set the other day, so it will likely be a few more days. I'm in another swap and mailed my flies on a Saturday and they didn't get to Spokane until Wed. From Wenatchee, that's 165 mi. I learned two things: the pony express was faster than US mail:rofl: and I need to be a little more patient. Hang in there. I think it's going to be worth the wait:thumb:

    Oh, come on guys you need big flies when the water is high... Believe me, that fly will get down and call the fishies... Unfortunately, I set the stinger back too far, sorry about that. I was hopin 'yard would join in, I want to see him chuck that thing...

    No, no. No offense taken, just joining in on the fun. Personally, I'm afraid to cast that thing, but they were fun to tie...

    pics are posted. not all flies came with toe tags so some of the pics don't have names for the flies or the tier
