    Um...I am kinda screwed. I got back from mexico 3 days LATE and my hooks didnt make it home with me. Unless you guys want some shitty half assed flies on bad hooks as we have no fly shop in town, I am gonna have to pull out, sorry guys.

    My flies will mailed tomorrow morning. I posted a photo of my submission in my gallery. This weekend and today are killing me. Never am I going to join five swaps with deadlines all in a two week period. I still have feeling in my finger tips.... I think.

    Mine are about 1/2 done. Between my Mexico trip and crazy work schedule the last few weeks I've been swamped. I plan to have them in the mail Wed.

    So, my wonderful wife took them to the Post Office for me today and I just realized that I did not toe tag them. And kind of like Mike I had to switch one of the materials. So, they aren't all identical but you may never know which one you got... ;) Oh and I put a little extra 7-8" fly in there for you, Chris. I think that's it.
