    Mine are tied but they are at work right now and I will not be back there till Monday at this point. I planned to send them yesterday but a trip in to the hospital and 5 hours staring at a ceiling put a end to that. I am home and ok but I can not go back to work till Monday by orders of both my bosses both the home one and my work one.
    I ended up switching over to a very basic spun deer hair mini mouse since I did not have any size 10 scud hooks its not as intresting but it is a more year round AK pattern.
    If you need to proceed with the swap without me I understand. I should have mailed them a few days ago but I was not even sure the swap was still on.
