    They won't be the prettiest fly in your box, but they have caught trout in both moving and stillwater. Should ship out on Monday.

    I hate tying on pretty flies! I most bugs I've seen are pretty ugly to me and those that are pretty don't seem like they get eaten by trout often. Send me all your proven trout catching ugly flies and my box will be filled with happiness...and fish slime.

    Connor,

    I am assuming that you have everyone's flies since tomorrow is the 1st and there will be no mail running?

    Thanks Connor. I was going to suggest you just mail them out. Pretty rude in my opinion for someone to sign up for a swap & then have no contact & never tie the flies and make the rest of the group wait. Thats why deadlines are given. :beathead:

    Just my 2 cents...
