    Solid flies Arthur...great effort! You pretty much tied up the Chernobyl version of my flies. These colors work great in the summer.

    3 more spots and i have 2 more flies to tie.my first swap and spots can't get filled. the other swaps people are sayin "sign me up if there is still room"
    i don't understand the flies look great, and hell you can tie a madame X if you want and there just about the easiest pattern there is. people it is terrestrials and stones. but a salmon fly would work, so would a frog, or a stimulator or the stimulator variation the pillow cushion or some weird name like that

Thanks for the extras as well, I will send you a couple of my prototypes.
    I want to thank everyone for the time you are all putting into this swap. Everyone has has really put in a top notch effort. It is easy to see by what I am getting that you all are putting you brains to work and thinking like a trout, and not to mention, putting in some time at the vice. NO SLACKERS HERE!!! All of you have raised the bar on what a fly swap can and should be. All of you who are new at tying should feel very proud on what you have submitted! Those who have been at it a while will be inspired by some fresh new ideas and great new patterns. Again, Thank you everyone. Even if it dosn't fill up I wont be bummed out.....but since everyone has sent me 12 flies.......HELP US FILL UP!!!!!! ONLY 3 MORE SPOTS TO GO!!!!!! C'MON TIERS!!!!!!

    i havnt been able to send them out the past couple of days cause they are not in bike riding distances and my mom has been busy working, and shes sick so that doesnt help much.
    but they will be sent out by the end of the week for sure!!!
