    Whooohooo, flies arrive from DDS, James Mello and Road hog. Nice looking bugs, I think. Still trying to find those 22's that DDS says are in the envelope. Ah, there they are. Good thing my wife has better eyes than me.

    Ron,

    Mine have been ready to go since tues, but because of car problems (and riding the bus to work) I haven't gotten to the post office. I will get them in today, generally there has only been a one day turnaround to Yelm, so you should see them tomorrow or monday at the latest. Sorry for the delay.

    Ned

    That's bizarre. I think the last time I sent my streamer by regular mail and you got them in a day, yet when I send them priority mail it takes 3.

    There's the US Government for ya!

    Hi Fellas,

    Mulligan PM'd me a while back saying he was caught up in finals this month and would do a double next month. I haven't heard from Davepott or Mark Ritari. I'm taking the pics in the morning and shipping out what we have in the afternoon. Looks like those wwho hang tough are gonna have a mess of bonus flies at the end.

    Pics are up and bugs are in the mail system. Enjoy! Terrestrials for March, Fellas. Anything that lives on land and winds up in the water as fishfood.

    I think I am going to tie some sort of foam body; maybe a Fat Albert, ant, or beetle pattern. To make up for my lapse last month I will be tying either a Baetis or Caddis pattern for the current/near future Yakima hatches.

    Most likely a foam beatle of some sort. Or maybe a moth pattern not sure yet.
