    Thanks for asking Kelvin. Wife is now home and stable. baby is still cookin in there, which is good. unfortunately, wife is on strict bed rest for at least the next month or so which means I have become the butler, maid, chef, personal shopper and chauffeur. That said, things could be much worse so I am extremely thankful that everything is under control (as of right now at least!).

    Glad to hear that everything is good Eric. Being able to tie up beautiful flies, keep the house running, and take good care of Mama makes you "Da Man". I look forward to fishing with your flies... especially now that they have a story with them.

    Great question, and much more important than some stupid flies.

    Glad to hear all are well and you now are doing what you should have been doing all along! I don't envy the workload you'll be putting in, but have been there and done it. You will find great satisfaction in the ability to juggle about fifty things at once.

    Here here! Here is to da man!:beer2: And the filies are damn good looking too.

    THANKS GUYS! seriously, i really appreciate the well wishes. Things are going fine and it looks like she might not be bed bound for the rest of the pregnancy after all, depending on how the next couple of weeks go..... sooo maybe I will get to wet some of these chum flies at some point after all!

    The pictures are posted. Let me know if there are any mistakes. I'll sort these tomorrow and try to get them in the mail by Wednesday. This was a nice swap. Thanks for all the hard work guys. The flies are all killers. I'm pretty sure these babies will bring you some tight lines.

    Kerfwappie and I met up for a handoff yesterday, thank you for that by the way. These flies are going to rewrite the @#$^ fishing reports. Every single fly in the box will be effective, I know it. I might get an evening chance today to get them wet. What order should I try them? Who's will get the first mention in a report? Thanks all for great flies, and thanks Kerfwappie for hosting. This was your first swap as swapmeister, how do you improve on this great one?
