    Mine will be done and in the mail on Monday the 28th I tied a new (to me) dragon fly nymph that is really cool looking. Looking forward to seeing all the other offerings.
    Blessings

    Got an e-mail from Randy yesterday that his were in the mail, so things are starting to shape up for the month.

    I'll keep everyone posted as the flies arrive.

    Thanks for the Update , Andrew. The flies are slowin arriving this onth for some reason, must be the nice weather we were having. Now that the rain has returned, we'll be spending more time at the bench.

    Ron,

    I wish fishing was the reason for my flies being sent near the deadline. I'm not an accountant so taxes are not my excuse...it is that building season is drawing near and everyone wants their plans yesterday!

    I tie these flies and get awesome patterns in return yet have not gotten a chance to wet a line...I'm a little worried with my prospects for fishing the next 6 months. New house that needs to be remodeled and a kid due sometime in June...odds are against me.

    JACKPOT!! Todays mail had my mail box stuffed with flies. Those arrivals were from Jesse, Theron and Andrew. Theron has joined the ranks of those going above and beyond providing more than one pattern.

    The assortment of nymphs is great. So far we have caddis, dragons and damsels. We should be ready for any situatiion that arises.

    Flies from LT, Dan and Dylan are all in the mail. Haven't heard from Matt yet.

    No pics until all the flies are in. Neener, neener, neener.
