    Mine are all packaged and were supposed to go in the mail today, but my trusty assistant decided to play all day instead... ;)

    So, tomorrow, you should get 'em Tuesday or Wednesday.

    Mine will be in the mail on Tuesday. Finally back to work. The heavy labor and 10 hour days have had me wiped out at night. So am catching up on backorders and flyswap flies this weekend (was a total veg last weekend after first week back). Will be done and mailed.

    I had PMs from craigmtb and Bob Triggs. Craig wanted my snail mail address (sent) and Bob says he has to drop out (next time, Bob).

    Jerry's last post said he'd mail his on Tuesday.

    Mine are done, will be dropped in mail tomorrow. Sorry about that, I was a zombie all Memorial weekend, and the long hours (upped my hours last week) I didn't do any tying at all during the week after work (worked almost 50 hours in 4 days last week). Got caught up today, so packaged and ready to go. Sorry about the delay. Still trying to adjust to heavy labor again after 2 years off. LOL. Not the pattern I wanted to tie, but one of my "go to" summerrun patterns though.

    OK! Craig's and Jerry's are in the mail (or as good as) .. once theirs arrive the swap is done, I'll sort the flies into sets and mail them out.

    I started taking photos today. For some reason the ones I saved for the web came out dark, but I have no more time to mess with photography today. You can find photos of all the flies received to date at http://www.farnham.ws/Summer Run Swap 2005.htm . I also posted some more of my spey flies at http://www.farnham.ws/spey_and_dee_flies.htm and some hairwings at http://www.farnham.ws/HariWing Flies.htm .

    Enjoy!

    Am I the only guy that tied a nymph pattern for summer-run steelhead? I must be a rebel... :D

    I thought about tying the steelie nymph, but chose not to so that you could have the spot light.

    Those swap flies are killer. Wish I would have had time to participaate in this one. Stu, that Rim Rock is a great looking fly, as are the rest of them. I'm a sucker for a nice Spey or Dee fly.

    These are looking like some great flies. Did you notice the very small head that I was able to tie. :rofl: bawling: Maybe one day I will be able to tie up some of these patterns, although I won't be holding my breath.

    Scott, Some guys just want to be differant I guess, and this time it was your turn. :confused: J/K That is a sweet looking nymph.

    I am looking forward to getting these things wet real soon. I might even go fishing with them after all the drool dries off. :D :D

    Thanks to Stu and everybody that was able to join in for a great swap.
