    Just a thought, since we have a low swapper count, and I would guess we had tied a few extra anyways, what if we double what we send to Gig? Personally, I've never used flies I've gotten in a swap and saved them for reference as ties, this way we can actually tie one on and fling it and then save the other.

    Plus, I only really need to get one of mine back for the remembrance of the swap tiers. How does that sound?

    Sounds like the vote to go ahead and send to flies to me was unanimous. I like the double the flies idea, and I will let everyone know. I will also send everyone a PM with my address.

    No worries buddy, hope it was good therapy and you're back to 100% real soon. Don't over do it. That is always the hardest.:ray1:

    Zach-
    I hope that your shoulder is healing fast, and don't worry about the when you get them out.

    Everyone-
    I leave for the rest of the week in eastern wa/ montana tonight, but considering that Zach's flies arrive by the time I get back, I will send everything out than, probably next monday...
