    Glad you guys are happy with the swap. I just wanted to let everyone know that I am very pleased with the way things are going. Everyone did a great job with the packaging/postage/toe tag etc. We are 3/5 of the way through and still have 12 accounted for. Keep up the good work! If you don't, you will hear from me!!

    Pictures are ready and waiting for the gallery thread to come up.

    Got to echo all of the other comments as well. I don't think I can ever fish with xdog's flies because I don't want to lose them - just want to save them for posterity so I can someday say "yeah, i swapped flies with that guy..."

    Again kudos to everyones flies!:thumb:

    I'm impressed as usual and can't wait to try them out soon.

    And I don't need to stroke X-Dogs ego either. You guys are doing a good job of that already:clown:.

    I got my flies as well and was again very impressed with the quality of all the flies. There is not a bad tie in the bunch as was the case with the nymphs and streamers. Thanks for all for the kind comments. I am looking forward to emergers/terrestrials although I am am still struggling with making my pattern ideas happen. Congratulations to all on work well done and thankyou Ned for making this happen.

    Tight lines gentlemen,

    :beer2:
