    So far the only one to not send in flies is Cam09, but that isn't a problem. Anyhoo, every set of flies that I've got looks flawless, I am absolutely in love with all of them. One slight problem though, I have tied a pattern that looks similar to Cameron Derbyshire's. I tied a crawdad and it looks mighty like his, which you can see in his gallery. Now, since I have time and the flies, I was wondering if you boys would like me to tie up a different pattern? I know that the purpose of a fly swap is to diversify your fly box and I don't think that it would be fair to send out 2 similar patterns. So if anyone has thoughts on the situation, post something, I would be more than happy to re-tie my pattern, it would pose absolutely no problem for me. Thank you.

    That would spoil the fun of seeing which one catches more fish and thus the chance to redicule the loser. Kidding of course. Whatever pleases you will be fine with me.

    I could always use more crawdad patterns. I have plenty of willing smallmouth to try them on.

    Cam09, I haven't got your flies yet but, get this, the last time I saw the mail-lady, she was broken down on the side of the road. So her 1940's mail carrying jeep may have something to do with it. I look forward to sending you all your prizes. And, yes, easter day was good, thanks for asking.

    O.K., They're finally in the mail. Sorry it took so long, I have strep throat and an ulcer. I have never been this busy in my life, senior year of high school, applying to college, working, doctor visits, finishing AP classes, doing fly swaps, taking care of my mom (surgery), and Grandma (broken foot) are wearing me down. I posted all the pictures of the flies, they're in my member gallery, i'm going to get a fly swap gallery for them later though. Hedburner, I need your address because I lost it already. I'm really sorry this took so long.
