    Sounds good, hedburner. I got mine finished up last week and decided to throw a bonus fly into the mix just for grins and am finishing them up today. Only two to go and, like most of the flies I use a lot, an easy tie.

    Hedburners flies arrived in the afternoon mail. Very nicely done. One of those variations that make you say, "Dang, why didn't I think of that?"

    Oops, Tin Pusher, your flies have been here for a couple of days. I neglected to post their arrival. My apologies.

    Stephen Forrest's flies arrived in the afternoon mail. Very nicely done and a sweet fly. Once Mtlhead's flies are in, I'll finish the photo's and get them out in the mail.

    Nice job guys.

    As promised, the flies are in the mail as of noon today with 100% completion by all tiers. The pictures are up in the gallery if you want to spoil the surprise of opening your package. If you didn't provide me with a recipe for your fly, please post it in the gallery as a comment. Nice work one and all, every fly is a fish taker for sure.

    As an aside, there are still 5 slots open in the marathon swap I'm running. You can sign up on the swap board.

    Thanks to all the tiers for a wonderful collection of fish catchers.

    Thanks, Dave. When the participants get their flies in on time and submit such nice flies it's easy to run a swap. You guys are the ones who made it a good swap.

    Yes it was a well run swap, a lot of good flies, some new ideas, and another list of things to get and try.

    P.S. My printer was out of ink
