    Sorry Mike - yes I got them Wednesday. Nicely tied and good-looking. They weren't toe-tagged though. What's the name of the pattern?

    I also got Banzai's beautiful Puget Bugs in today's mail.

    I've got ten tied up that seem good enough to send. With a little effort in the next couple of days I should be finished and have mine on the way. Sounds as if they'll be in some fancy company - don't look too close at mine, Kent! ;)

    All tied up and should hit the mail in a day or two. I use a lot of these, and having my supply of them this high is rare. It is almost tearful to think of them leaving...bawling: :beathead:

    Tyers block at the moment. Got to get going. Have to finish a box I'm tying for our club banquet on the 21st. Have twenty flies for it and just can't get started on the rest. Too busy looking at new rods.:thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
