    For the swap, thought I throw in a couple odd flies for more non-selective fish
    First Pattern completed: Montana Bucktail Dry
    From a 1970 Pacific Northwest Fly Patterns book -Roy Patrick's Flyshop. This is an attractor caddis pattern I've caught many fish on in Washington, Oregon and Montana. Particularly effective on cuts.
    Second Pattern: Swimming Caddis Emerger
    This is more of a creation fly for this swap taking different aspects of surfacing caddis flies; think looks pretty tasty.
    Second pattern will be finished today and all mailed out.
    Look forward to seeing all of ours!

    Ok so it sounds like everyone will have their flys in the mail in the next few days. If I receive them early I will get them out to you all early. I will also post pics of all flys as soon as I receive them. So far I am very pleased with the quality of the flys and I beleive all of you will be happy with them as well. Thanks again for making my introductory to being a swapmeister an easy one.

    Mine hit the mail this afternoon. delivery time should be either tuesday or wed - if they do not arrive then drop me a line and i'll try to get a new set tied (thinking all-nite, uggh).

    This olive spent caddis is a variation of the Mathews spent caddis found at flyfisherman.com. The fly will have a tendency to float any which way, if you want it to settle low in the water, trim the bottom partridge feathers.

    looking forward to seeing the others. k

    Sean- I doubt that the postage that I included will cover a delivery confirmation number. Don't worry about mine, just send it regular postage. Otherwise I could meet you and pick it up. I am just over at about 176 and Meridian.

    Im fine with however you want them either mail or If you would like we could meet up somewhere. I'm in Puyallup often, halfway to meet would be Canyon rd and 176 if you want to do it that way.

    I'd like to buy you a beer... or coffee for hosting, your choice. How about either the Starbucks in the Safeway parking lot or there is a new bar / restaurant East on 176 just after the Caveman Coffee at 66th. Either Friday or Saturday afternoon work for you?
