    I'm running behind. I ran out of GP tippet, hopefully I can make it to the shop tomorrow and get them in the mail in time.

    No problem, Obiwan looks like he's going to be a bit late on this one as well, so there's currently no rush. Speyflyfisher, I got your flies and they are fantastico!

    I just got an additional two boxes of GREAT looking flies and my swap board is filling up! Eric's ET Muddlers and Christian's Bennett's Halos have arrived, both awesome ties! I am looking forward to getting all the flies, but there's no rush.

    Alright, here's how I'm going to determine the "best of show" pattern - I'll choose three finalists and then it's going to be put to a popular decision via a poll on the main forum. All three finalists will get something, but the winner gets all the marbles.

    I'm ready to see all the flies, this has been a great reading thread. It's late but I think I'm gonna go get cozy with my vice and some dead animals.

    Ok, we're only waiting on Obiwan now. Marty and Diehard, I just got your flies - both fantastic. Marty, big kudos on the extras! It's always good to know my efforts as a swapmaster are appreciated :thumb:. Anyways, once I get Obiwan's ties, the pics will be up soon thereafter, then the forum post for the "Best of Show" pattern.

    Flies have been tied and will have to be mailed this Sat. since my working hours do not coincide with those of the post office.

    Anyone know Nick's address? I am ready to send these flies but don't have his address in my Inbox.
