    Thanks mumbles, I really couldn't get my camera to take a good picture without the flash f-ing things up. It's a great fly and I've been doing very well on it for a while now. Hopefully everyone likes it and catches some steel on it!!! Thanks for my first fly swop everyone and I'm sure it isn't the last!

    I thought the deadline was moved to Saturday, the 17th. Is this correct or did I miss the boat?

    I'm sure the boat may float by anytime, but had planned on getting them done and out next week. Some nice ties there to motivate me!

    Sending mine out today ... express ... I hope they make it!

    I was on holidays over christmas and was planning on tying during this time. Unfortunately I was sick the whole time, first stomach flu for 4 days then the next day I got a cold for a week!

    looking good everyone!
     
  9. I feel for you there. I had a bad ear infection and then we were snowed in for nearly a week. Didn't get out much over break to do any fishing, but did manage to get some flies tied at least! Now, who knows how long till the rivers will be decent again :beathead:

    Oh and BTW, your flies look sweet!!!

    I'm sorry guys, I didn't get mine done and assume the flies will be out tomorrow. I apologize for not getting them done, but had some tough personal issues come up and waited until the last week again. Some very nice flies and I know I'm missing out...

    Photos are up, flies are in the mail tomorrow. After packaging them up, I found an extra of Randy's on the floor. Swappers, please check the contents of your packages. If you don't find the pink pattern in plastic bag with tying recipe, PM me with your address and I'll get it to you. Thanks to all the participants for making this a superb swap. Impressive ties all around.

    Thanks Cameron, great looking flies! Who's going to be the first one to put one into the mouth of some steel?

    Wow, awesome batch of flies that I can't wait to get, try to replicate and fish of course. Once again I'm the biggest recipient though as my fly does not hold a candle to the rest of your great ties. One day I will have to repay all the debts I have incurred. Thanks Cameron for hosting, and for all for tying.
