    I have not seen mine. I got a notice yesterday that I had 3 packages to pick up at the post office. I work from before they open to after they close every stinking day. What is up with the postal carrier being too afraid to walk down my driveway and drop them off? Is that postal discrimination or what?

    Connor,

    Mail just showed up and NO FLIES!!!

    Since nobody else is communicating on this Thread except for Mumbles, it would sure be nice to know if anyone else has received their flies.

    This is just plain odd.

    I picked up three packages at the post office today, no flies. Nothing in my home mailbox. Maybe your postal carrier opened a fly shop or picked up a fly rod and needed some bugs to toss? My recent opinion of the USPS is declining sharply, I'm sure we'll see them...someday.

    This is just plain crazy. I am wondering if this all just a dream, and that i never really joined this swap :beathead: I think i am going to go eat a fly box of Muddlers bawling:

    I've tied some spun deer hair flies...I love eating those scraps. I've been in a few swaps lately that I've tied early and submitted...the wait has been agonizing...but the end results are well worth it.
