    Now that we're up to 7 tyers; probably will stick with original deadline. I'll PM out address information in a few days.
    I hit a local lake yesterday using buggers, streamers, midges, etc. Best fly was a blood worm near the bottom. Hitting the vice this weekend, so may sub one of my flies for a bloody pattern.

    I didn't get chance to PM the mailing information before the web site maintenance so obviously pushing out the deadline. Instructions being mailed this morning. Try to get them in the mail for arrival by this Saturday the 7th.

    My ties are ready to go. How's everyone's coming along?

    Thanks for the update Daryle, heard you got your materials to finish them up. Great!

    Haven't heard much from the others. Are yours tied and ready to fly?
    As they start arriving, I'll be updating the status here.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone's patterns.

    I'm updating the status on those received at the original post at the beginning, top of our thread.
    So far we've got 6 of 7 ties received and third may arrive today.
    They're all looking very good! :thumb:Can't wait for us to get out and try some of these patterns.
    Some of you have sent eight patterns, so I can return the extras. Sometimes this is gift-given to the swapmeister. Just say your choice, I'm fine either way.

    Congrats on getting a new job Jim. Sounds like it is really going to cut into your quality fishing time though...;)

    If you've been checking the status at the very top, you'll see we have one more due from a nameless person. (supposedly in mail over a week ago.) What do you guys want to do?
    I can either send out those received so far in a couple days or wait until this weekend to see if the final ones arrive.
