    I have one pattern finished, but I'm a bit concerned about inadequate floation and will send a second version to show a different option. Should be finished this evening or tomorrow morning.

    I dropped mine off about an hour ago. The Labrador Caddis are on their way.

    Flies are tied and will be in priority mail tommorow. Just to let you guys know, I couldn't find a "pure dry" pattern I really like (and would fish) that wasn't a sparkle caddis, so I did some parasol caddis instead. Hopefully this doesn't violate the swap rules. :)

    So far I have 5 packages so one more and I will do the big sendout. No rules really, just trying to get some cool patterns to swap and so far so good.

    Okay guys, swap is done. I am going fishing tomorrow and then doing the mailing on Saturday. Expect flies in your mailbox early next week.

    James, your flies came today so guess what that means....

    Yup, flies are getting photographed and then mailed out on Wednesday.

    Thanks again for contributing. These are just what the troutman ordered.

    Okay guys, I was a little behind in getting the packages out. All of them went in the mail and will be picked up Monday at noon.

    The good news; any of the flies are October Caddis dries. Perfect for right now eh?

    Go catch some fish!

    Thanks for participating.

    Thank you Tony for a Great Swap ! Sorry I didn't tag mine, it's the CDC Caddis. Also sorry I forgot to put money in there for Ya. I completely spaced it out, I was so busy getting ready for my daughters to come out I completely spaced it. I am sending you a check to cover the cost. All of the Flies are superb! I can't wait to try them out.
