    Clint-

    Mine will go out tomorrow via USPS Priority.

    There are several extras in slightly different sizes & materials for your trouble. Let me know if they fish, especially the big one.

    Just keep the epoxy fish for yourself since I kinda screwed up the last swap... They DO catch fish just to let ya know! The best part is the crazy coho action on the little pink things! Freakin' rule when fished on an intermediate line and about a 6-7 foot 10# leader\tippet.

    I got the flies on Friday and went to Doc's and Purdy excited to try them. I only saw 2 fish total jump. And was "told" that a gear fisherman caught one. I am sure that the sea lion swimming up and down the beach helped. Anyone else have any luck?

    Hi Clint,

    I just wanted to thank you for hosting this swap.
    Unfortunately I had to crew up on a tug boat for my month hitch before they
    showed up in the mail and wont
    be able to fish any of them for a while. When I do get home for my month off
    I'll be able to fish the hell outa my new flies.
    Thanks also to all the guys that participated. My wife emailed me a picture of
    them and they look great.
    Tom
