    Mine will be sent tomorrow. Had a busy week and didn't get to finish until today. I use priority mail so it will be there sat. or mon. at the latest.

    Priority mail is faster than First Class. There is no still guarantee that it will get there on Sat.

    I guess I am out.

    Looks like Eric is probably out too since he didn't get his out today.

    Sorry everyone, had a busy week and didn't get the time I thought I was going to have in order to get my flies finished and in the mail.

    Arthrur, not that my input matters, but I've received flies from both Eric T and Daconil. I'm sure they are worth waiting for a day or two. I know you set your limits and I'm cool with that. I've met both guys, they are great dudes not slackers. I've fished both guys' flies, stretched lines! Ed

    I would put my two cents in for waiting a day or two. That's not bad for a deadline, especially considering I did a winter steel swap last winter and people were VERY late on the ties....guess that made me a bad swapmeister! Even if you wait until Monday or Tuesday to put them in the mail, we'll have them by next Friday in plenty of time to play.

    Well, I sent them anyway. Hope you decide to include them Arthur, if not just mail them back I guess.

    guys< im good with waiting a couple of days. i was just worried if everybody else would be upset with not getting their flies in time. ill make the due date by next thursday and will send out friday or that weekend. ive only gotten 5 sets of flies anyway so it wouldnt have been much of a swap without the wait. so send them out today or monday
