    Ok, I'm a little over halfway done, but I've got a last minute trip that I can't take my tying stuff on. I should have them finished and in the mail on the 11th.

    ok i just finished mine, but ran into 2 minor problems. 1: i didn't have enough of the same stinger hooks so 5 of you get owner hooks and 2 of you get red gami octopus hooks. 2: i thought i had enough orange rabbit to do 7 of these flies but ranout of it after 5 1/2 of them so had to go and buy another bag and the one bag they had left is a little brighter orange then the last, so one of the flies will have the brighter orange and one of them will have 1/2 duller and 1/2 brighter orange. my excuse? well i have never tied this big of flies and thought i had enough orange rabbit and the stinger hooks, well i thought i had another bag of them. that's what i get for not doing a proper inventory before tying. i would have had enough hooks if i wasn't experimanting with different color combos before hand. my bad. they look pretty much the same though so in my opinion no harm done. i will try and mail them tommorrow
