    Just finished my flies last night. They'll be in the mail in the next few days. I still gotta toe-tag them and find a crush-proof container.

    Here's a representative of what turned out.

    Mine are on the way Marty. Thanks for hosting and am looking forward to getting them back,, Marabous work equally well on my side of the world:thumb: Included a couple of extras and a "treat" for you to try. Thanks again for putting this one together.

    It wasn't really that difficult. The marabou wing made the tying a lot easier. The rest is straight forward. If it was a lot of work, I wouldn't be done already. :D

    Sorry if you guys are waiting on me as I haven't had much time to put in on this swap yet. I've unexpectedly had to put in a lot of time at work over the past 3 weeks. :beathead: Anyways I'm on it now and I'm tieing some great looking/fishing orange and black marabous on 1/0 hooks. I got half done last night and hopefully I can get the others done tonight so that my wife can get them in the mail and I can go fish Saturday morning. If she is too busy :hmmm: or crabby :mad: (getting ready/cooking for Superbowl party) then they will go in the mail on Monday. I'll try and post a picture this evening.
