    Way cool. Warren's arrived today. I guess not everyone waits until the last minute. Just so you know, mine are also done, but we do have a while before the dries are due.

    Gary,

    Sorry Budy, but the swap is full. I can put you on the short list in case someone has to drop out if you want.

    C-Van,

    Actually, your flies arrived this afternoon. Safe and sound.

    Sure, if you want to send a fiver with the next set of flies, that would be okay by me.

    So far we have flies from Jim Williamson, Warren Perry, Matt Grunwald, Greg Gilliland, Randy Diefert, C-Van, Leaky Tiki, Lefty Loops, ICConrad, VEE, Jesse Clark and Bob Ellis.

    Those still out are Dylon and Theron Depaulo, Dan Soltau and Andrew Krzysiek. Dylon, theron and Andrew have e-mailed that the flies will be here, one evening Fed-Exing them. Have no news from Dan Soltau.

    Things are looking pretty good.

    Flies arrived yesterday from Dan Soltau, Dylon and Theron DePaulo. Andrews flies are enroute. I will be sending out the dries as soon as Andrews arrive. Very nice selectiion this month, and all well tied.

    ICConrad, your flies for November arrived on Saturday also. Very nice and really on time.

    15 Spent Needle Flies

    They hit the post office, and most likely will be in your hands today (Monday). Sorry guys to be tardy...I've already started on the next round in order to be on time!

    Andrew, Your flies did arrive today.

    Great news one and all, the flies are sorted, packaged, all the packages are addressed and taped and will be in the mail in the AM. I'm heading for the polls early, so I'll drop them off as soon as I exercise my voting privilage.

    The fllies are looking very good. A couple of points though. Make sure of your count on the flies. A couple of you were short on the count. My wife decided to take the short so everyone else would get a full set. The number of flies is 16. That way you get a complete set, including one of your own. It also makes the sorting go faster and easier for me.

    For those that included a few extra flies for the old swap meister, you have my thanks.

    I do owe Randy Diefert an apology. He went to all the trouble of printing out step by step tying instructions for his fly, and I left them sitting on the coffee table. I noticed that I had forgotten to enclose them when I taped up the last package. Again, my apologies Randy. I will include them in the next go-round so everyone gets them, or I may just e-mail a copy to everyone.

    Next round is wet flies, due date is November 30th, 2004. Oh yeah, ICConrad already has his in.

    Thanks in advance for the great job!! I can't wait to see the flies it will be like an early Christmas when they arrive and see what everybody else tied. I have started on my November entry a fly that I had the most success with all summer and fall in the E. Wash Lakes, a "Halloween bugger".
