Swap Mini Marathon Trout swap (2014)

I just returned from four days in Craig & the glorious Missouri. I'll be tying some of our most productive flys. You guys familiar with "hot beads" and SJWs? Naw, just kidding....

tic, tic, tic....Two days!
Not much life on this page. Inbox messages sent to those I haven't heard from. Only one set received to date. We're at mile marker 21, you can do it!
Terrestrials!!(?) You want Terrestrials? I'll give you Terrestrials!

My ant colony and whatever Jerry's tie'n up will be on your doorstep on Wednesday. I've got a tutorial @ Apple at the Tacoma Mall & will drop both our's off on the way.

Craig really is a wonderful spot to waste four otherwise productive days. I was a bit apprehensive about the weather in the middle of April, but it was not all that bad and the fishing's always quite beyond belief and expectation (at least mine)..... If you like to catch big trout with a fly rod, it should be on your bucket list. I'm go'n back with my Boler and spending 5/6 weeks in June/July. Life's good...

Ron and Jerry, I received the flies, thanks.
Travis was early and sent his in a month in advance.
TE's apparently in the mail.
Not sure what's happened with TD again. Never received last month's flies and still awaiting a response to my recent request.
Sean is alive and has flies somewhere in the county. I'm attempting to track him down again.

Still no word from TD or Sean. You two out there?

Once Chris opens a gallery page, I'll get photos up and send the ones we have off.

If we have permanent drop outs I will put the extra flies everyone tied in the winner's box at the end.

Pics are in the gallery: http://www.washingtonflyfishing.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=18853

I will drop them in the mail on Monday.

Still hoping to hear from Sean (he actually tied them and last I heard was dropping them by the house on the true due date). He may be on a secret rescue mission in Nigeria?

I think we've lost TD for good as I haven't heard from him since his brief appearance after missing last month. I know something did come up in his life and hopefully all is ok.

As I said in the last post, if we have permanent drop outs I will include the extra flies intended for them in the winner's box at the end.
