    Mine are in the mail tomorrow. I am ashamed to say that I finished tieing them about 2 months ago and haven't mailed them. I cringe every time I get my things out to tie and see them. I am off to put it all together right now.

    Sorry,
    Ned

    You haven't seen my ugly flies yet, I can take photos but can't tie worth a darn, they will catch a fish or three.

    Going to the post office this afternoon! I'm stoked to see everyone's flies. I'm sending a bonus - a little hydropsyche nymph that I've been having a lot of success with right below riffles.
