I just got an additional two boxes of GREAT looking flies and my swap board is filling up! Eric's ET Muddlers and Christian's Bennett's Halos have arrived, both awesome ties! I am looking forward to getting all the flies, but there's no rush.
Alright, here's how I'm going to determine the "best of show" pattern - I'll choose three finalists and then it's going to be put to a popular decision via a poll on the main forum. All three finalists will get something, but the winner gets all the marbles.
12 pieces of fine oval tinsel
12 pieces of flat silver tinsel
12 pieces of 3strand silver twist
24 red weaver bird feathers
12 strips of yellow floss
12 strips of black floss
12 blue ear pheasant rump
12 hooded merganser flank
240 fibers of turkey tail
Ok, we're only waiting on Obiwan now. Marty and Diehard, I just got your flies - both fantastic. Marty, big kudos on the extras! It's always good to know my efforts as a swapmaster are appreciated :thumb:. Anyways, once I get Obiwan's ties, the pics will be up soon thereafter, then the forum post for the "Best of Show" pattern.
