    Mine arrived today, maybe the best group yet :) I thought about doing a Mickey Finn, too. Some time we could all tie the same pattern and see how our interpretations compare -- no, Ron, not another marathon just yet ;)

    Our buddy Theron sent me an e-mail a couple of days ago that he received an empty envelope from the streamer swap. I have enough extras of all flies, except Dan's woolly sculpin, to make an extra set to replace what was lost in the mail.

    Did anyone else have a problem getting their flies?

    For some reason, my post yesterday didn't make it. I have everything except Dan Soltau's wooly sculpin ready to go. I'll be dropping it in the mail this morning.

    The back is much better. I'm not in shape to handle the oars on a drift boat yet, but at least I can fish.

    E-mail will be out shortly.

    Hey Gang, you're the best. I was really bummed about losing the flies in the mail. Thanks for all your hard work, and to REE for being such a great swapmaster.

    I mailed my terrestrials in the mail yesterday. This has been a fun swap with lots of interesting patterns many of which have made it into my regular use pattern boxes.
