    Mine are done, will post a photo tommorrow, Still waiting for Rory's and the Hog guy from Stanwood, (might have to run down there and help him finish up feeding the sows,;) James creation is on the way and mine might or might not catch a fish, I still think if I inject cod liver oil instead of mineral oil it might be more enticing to the critters.

    Still haven't heard from Rory or absolutehog, I'll wait until the 17th to send out the flies, these two dudets have been known to skip out before.

    Mine are done, I'll mail them tomorrow. I'll ship them next day so they'll be there on time. Sorry, I just got back from a week in New York, fun town. Not a single fly shop that I saw though... very dissapointing.

    And I have never skipped out on a swap before. I've been late, but no skip outs.

    Mine are finished and ready to mail. I juss gotta get someone to give me a ride to the post office. They will be out tonite or tommorow, probably tonite. I did skip a swap once but i gave notice a month before the due date, besides that i have never skipped out on a swap.

    I think the flies are pretty damn good. My dogs hair is sort of a blackish brown blend. She stopped shedding so i had to give her a little hair cut, my mom got pissed off at me for it but it was worth it. Hope they catch some fish for you guys.

    So just to suck a bit more... My baby had to go back into surgury today to fix a hernia, as such I didn't get the flies out. If you guys aren't to mad, is getting them to the swapmiester on monday cool? I've got 4 of those new fangled flies done, but it takes a while to get the rest out.... If this is a huge issue, just let me know and I'll try to make it up to you guys!

    Bro, you don't have to even ask. We're hard core, but babies come before fly swaps. Now if your wife got a hernia...

    Yeah... but my wife doesn't complain about Sh**.... More and more I'm starting to realize I'm a complete puss. My wife, C-Section, no narcotics, Advil for pain meds, up and running around in 12 hours.... James, small splinter, out like a like chewing on Percecet and Oxycoton, acting like I'm being killed by flesh eating bacteria....

    My gut feel is if my wife gets a hernia, she'd strangle *IT* instead of the other way around.

    -- Cheers
    -- James

    Daryle, I've noticed you're right up north of me a little bit, in Mount Vernon. Where do you normally go fishing?
