    And to think I was going to be last. I had enough home stuff going on that it was messing with my fly tying.

    Did you receive them yet? I sent them priority mail. Maybe I should have just driven over, dropped them off, and hit a spring creek? :)

    Yeah, I'd like to maybe fish them before next spring when the damsels are thick again.

    flies mailed. I'm curious if anybody gets a postage due notice when the flies arrive. I know of two that were short. One or two needed better envelopes in my opinion.

    When I hosted a swap I had a guy from Canada give me $1.50 and no envelope
    It cost 9$ to send his flies and another 1$ for a padded envelope. I never said anything to him I just won't allow him to participate again, pissed me off.
