    This weekend 22 flies died when unbeknownst to me, my 3 year old niece or one of my relatives accidentally threw away a unmarked envelop that contained these creations. I was all set to take these flies to the post office on Sat when I couldn’t find the sealed envelope that contained them. After looking everywhere, we deduced that they made their way to the trash<my niece has a thing with throwing things away within her reach>. My apologies to everyone and I look forward to seeing the swap images.

    Status report: The final set of flies will be in my hands Tue or Wed or next week; I'll have them out the next day. So look for them starting a week from this Saturday.

    Zach, wrong swap; can't help you out. You weren't in this one. Try the estuary salmon fly swap.
