    Desmond, Cool. Ain't those steelhead flies fun to tie. Nice sized hooks, great materials and the fish you get to catch. Wow!.

    Dylan DePaulo's dries arrived today. Mighty fine looking bugs they are, too. Love the "what this fly taught me" that Dylan includes with his flies. Nice touch.

    I agree Ron, that is a nice touch that Dylan includes. I would include something like that, but I've been told I'm not teachable! ;)

    Howdy fellas. My life has become quite hectic lately. I haven't had any extra time to tie any flies. Unfortunately, it would probably be best that I remove myself from the swap. I aplogize for the short notice for this month. the end of the months keep sneaking up on me.

    I'm a little bummed. I really enjoyed getting everyone's flies the first few months.

    Hopefully, I'll things will settle down, and I will be able to participate in some future swap. That is, if anyone is willing to let me participate..

    Regards,
    Bill

    Bill,

    No problem, Buddy. Sometimes life gets in the way of our guilty pleasures. It happens. Thanks for the heads up. Keep your eyes peeled for future swaps once things settle to a more relaxed pace. I'll make the change on the first post.

    What Jesse didn't mention is that, not only is he making the drive, but he's fixin dinner for me and VEE, plus a latte. Talk about your super over-achievers!. I knew you guys liked getting the swap flies, but this is just a bit over the top.
