    No way I put political "donation" to the Republican party on the outside of the envelope. It will get a $100,000 dollar NSA escort to your doorstep.

    Mr. Hicks' flies arrived today, sans NSA escort OR the shitty schlappen fly he promised to Halcyon. Some people . . . :mad:

    Mssrs Mello and Bodger will hand-deliver theirs, hopefully by Thursday, although Willie has the flu.

    I think if you check closely that envelope had been opened by the government black ops agents and the schlappen fly was removed. I'll bet it is being used this very moment to hunt down the ever ellusive Oncorhynchus Al Qaedus fish in the vast remote stretches of the Newfound river in New Hampshire.

    How very Will Smith Tommy Lee Jones this story sounds. I can see it now "MIB III A River Runs Through it" Starring Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. Watch Tommy and Will roll cast to tight lipped alien Al Qaeda fish with the shitty schlappen fly in an attempt to save America from those that would corrupt its youth and destroy its values.

    Hey, sick happens. Don't worry about it. Some of my fondest memories of being sick are being able to sit around tying flies between naps...:beer2:

    Willie, Hope you were wearing a mask while tying. Would hate to get a dose of "bird flu" to add to the creeping crud I already have.:rofl: :rofl: Good deal they are all in this time.:thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    Willie dropped off his flies this afternoon but I've been tied up all afternoon and so haven't had a chance to divide them up. I'll shoot for getting them in tomorrow's mail.

    Thanks for your patience,
