    Ron: I almost missed the sign up for this I hope I am not too late. I will take two slots. One for me and one for my son John Clark he is not hooked up to the computer so I will get him the information. Last year was great I am looking forward to another marathon.
    Blessings

    Jesse, you and John are both in and welcome. I like seeing folks returning from last years marathon. I hope it was as much fun for all the tiers as it was for me as a host.

    Unless things have changed since last year, I still have your info in my swap file.

    Only one slot left folks.

    Ron:

    Flies are done. I just need to create tags and ship them out. Should be out the next day or two. Flies are a simple bead head pattern. Easy to tie but effective.

    Anyfish,

    Most of my flies are tied on the KISS principle. Keep It Simple Stupid. When I try to get fancy I get a lot of refusals or nothing at all. Simple, but effective is good.

    Cool Randy, Looking forward to seeing some more of your flies. They are always a treat. If anyone needs my snail mail address it's in the first post about this swap. Hot dang, two sets headed my way.

    Wow, not even halfway through the month and the first set of flies arrived in my mailbox yesterday. A nice set of buggy looking nymphs from HateNot2Fish. Nicely tied flies. Next month though, one toe tag per fly please.

    13 October, Randy Diefert's flies arrived safe and sound.

    Just to let you know Ron, I'll be out next week on business. I'll be finishing up on this month's dozen, plus next month's during those lonely nights in my hotel room. I'll mail them when I get back on the 21st.
