    Well money was included. I have to go to the post office to get the shipping paid forward which is awfully tough when thepost office e is closed. This swap was awesome everyone tied great flies and took care of all thier stuff. I apologize for the delay on some of the packages but they will be in the mail tommorow. Believe me theseflies are worth the wait. Lol

    Just got my flies today! Excellent tying job everybody! I especially like Annie's Hot Sexy Pink and Tracy's Tailhook Leech. Thanks CCW for hosting.

    I have been in a few swaps prior to this one, and I don't wish to disrespect anyone with whom I've swapped files with, from any of those......but! I have got to say the excellent creativity, quality, and unique flies I recieved in the mail today....well they are just outstanding!
    Thank you one and all, I'm so glad I got to be a part of this swap.
    Now I need to get another fly box.
    It looks as though my return/postage envelope, had sufficent postage too! :thumb:

    S.B. niether is really my pattern, the night leech is a Steve Probasco pattern. You really should try it at night, amazing how close to you fish will hit if you are quiet. The carey bugger is just Denny Rickards seal bugger with more flash than he would use and a bead (he doesn't use beads) wrapped with a collar instead of saddle palmer. Thanks for blowing smoke up my skirt anyway, Doug

    Excellent flies, mine arrived a few minutes ago. Many outstanding patterns in this batch that should put many fish into the net.

    Ditto Brother Ed.
    A box of magic arrived today. All the trout in a nearby lake shuddered so much the whole neighborhood vibrated!
    Many thanks to the lady and all gentlemen who participated, these are excellent specimens everyone. Great ideas and craftsmanship, I am telling on you!

    As many of us as possible should make plans to take that box to a lake and fish the hell out of them. Who's in, put up some date and location ideas.

    pass is usually convienent for a lot of the guys in the swap i believe, it would be awesome to meet the folks who tied these sharp leeches in my fly box, and catch fish on them..
