    Steve, flies are in the mail! You should get them in a day or two. Now we just need to wait for the pinks to show up.

    Soon enough. Patience is the friend of the flyfisher. Your arms will be worn out by the time it's over.

    Got flies from Matt and Ed last evening. Great looking flies, guys. A sad note: Logan (PEI Fishfinder) has had to drop due to a death in the family. I'll send back his flies when I send yours to you. Can't wait to see the remaining patterns and we could do a meet, greet, and fish when the fish get in.

    I sentim out yesterday. I couldn't make it to usps so I had to send itthrought an envelope. I just didn't want it to be late. If you choose to send it back through a package and all, then tell me re price and I'll send you the money for it.

    And I'd like to get in on the fish and greet if you guys don't mind talking a teen with you. :)

    Nice Ed!

    Those should work well in the salt, and the bead on the end would make it a good steelhead pattern too!
