    Thanks mumbles, I really couldn't get my camera to take a good picture without the flash f-ing things up. It's a great fly and I've been doing very well on it for a while now. Hopefully everyone likes it and catches some steel on it!!! Thanks for my first fly swop everyone and I'm sure it isn't the last!

    I thought the deadline was moved to Saturday, the 17th. Is this correct or did I miss the boat?

    I'm sure the boat may float by anytime, but had planned on getting them done and out next week. Some nice ties there to motivate me!

    Sending mine out today ... express ... I hope they make it!

    I was on holidays over christmas and was planning on tying during this time. Unfortunately I was sick the whole time, first stomach flu for 4 days then the next day I got a cold for a week!

    I feel for you there. I had a bad ear infection and then we were snowed in for nearly a week. Didn't get out much over break to do any fishing, but did manage to get some flies tied at least! Now, who knows how long till the rivers will be decent again :beathead:

    Oh and BTW, your flies look sweet!!!

    I'm sorry guys, I didn't get mine done and assume the flies will be out tomorrow. I apologize for not getting them done, but had some tough personal issues come up and waited until the last week again. Some very nice flies and I know I'm missing out...
