    Our coordinator in the office is on route to the Postoffice as we speak Stephen. Expect those flies to be in your hands tommorow :)

    Also, as a side note, the "cats" required too much rabbit strip fur, so I did a thing that someone showed me recently. It looks (IMO) pretty good, and is a very easy tie :)

    Yea!!! I'm looking forward to seeing everybody's creative efforts. It sounds as if you have enough extra flies, Steve, to do a fairly scientific comparison of the catching abilities of the various ties. I hope that you have lots of opportunities this spring and summer for "experimentation". Thanks for putting this together and handling the logistics.
