    I'm down to the last three of the adult pattern and then they'll be in the mail Monday or Tuesday.

    EDIT: Dropped them in the mail the morning of 4/1 at the downtown Seattle post office so they should arrive soon.

    Alright guys, it doesn't look like we're going to get that final spot filled. So, if you've already tied an extra set and sent them in, I'll just mail you back the extra set with the rest of the flies. Sound good?

    Zach I got your flies (which came without return postage - SWAP FOUL:mad:) anyways, we're just waiting on Hogwrangler's flies and then we're done. So, I'll be contacting him soon and then I can get all these flies back out to you guys!:thumb:

    It doesn't look like hogwrangler's in on this one anymore either, despite my constant nagging, so I'm going to just get all your flies in the mail asap. I'll let everyone know when they're on their way.

    Ok, I tied everyone an extra couple flies because Hog and Sean dropped out, so the flies will be on their way tomorrow. And depending on how the pictures turn out, they'll be up soon too.

    Flies will be in the mail tomorrow, I spent some time at the vise and tied up three extras for everybody to compensate for all the drop-outs:beer2:. Pictures will be up as soon as I can get them on my computer. Thanks to everybody that hung in there!ptyd
