    Forgot to add this little reminder to everyone, the postage rates change next Monday. If you happen to ship to the swapmeister before then, remember to include the appropriate postage for the return trip, since these will most likely only be shipped in June. I would guess the postal clerk will eagerly alert you to this anyway. I always buy postage for a few ounces more than what is being sent, for the return trip, not knowing what type or size of flies are coming back.

    Received Daryl's flies...NICE! Looks just like the picture! Thanks!

    How is everyone doing??? We have just over 15 days left (before they need to be in the mail)...So I hope you're tying away!

    Thanks!

    Hey guys...(or at least I think all of you are guys??? Either way, I'm not too PC...)

    Anyway...was wondering how you guys are doing with your flies??? I have a few more to tie before I'm done. There are only FIFTEEN DAYS LEFT in the swap. I'd like to have the files in my PO Box by the 31st. PM me if you need extra time.

    Thanks!

    Received Ron McNeal's (aka Wader) flies today. Sorry for the delay. The post office thought the package was too big for th box...and I'm sometimes lazy. So I just recently picked them up. Thanks for your patience!!!

    PS...Ron's Flead Nymph looks great. I'm excited to try it out!!!

    UPDATE:

    I've heard from every one except Jason / rodeo11. Ron's are in the mail on Wednesday - I'm still waiting for them. Steve & Dick will have theirs in the mail this next week. I'm looking at getting them organized and out the door next weekend. Hope that works for everyone!

    Thanks!
