Kent everyone, sorry that I have been tardy. I have been caught with the serious sickness bug. The weather has been in the upper 50's all week and the BWO's have been comming off in clouds. I'll have them out priority mail on Monday.

Got the final materials...should have the first half done this weekend, the second half next...They'll be there by the deadline.
I'm mixing and tying a new carey variation for damsel/dragon lake fishing. Could be good...like the challenge of three materials. :thumb:

Kent,

I'm struggling. Been working ungodly amounts of overtime as of late so finding the energy after a long day is difficult. Basically work, eat dinner, go to sleep. Rinse and repeat. I should have some time to take care of the rest of the flies tomorrow evening. I apologize for the delay all.

They're done, just didn't have time to package before leaving town...
I'm tagging them today and mailing them tomorrow, so easily be there by our deadline.
I ended up tying a slight variation of an Olive Pheasant Tail Six Pack.
