    Moses Lake must be in Canada also. Our mail goes to either Wenatchee or Spokane for sorting.

    GO CANUCKS!!!

    Unlike the east coast, great weather for the mailman lately.
    Bugs ready to fly out to us?

    I was thinking a bit the same but mostly because I was about to sit down and tie some more mids but I don't want to yet until I really know where I need to fill in. Don't get me wrong I'll still tie some up but you know always good to know what you have.

    Ok just got home and still no flies from the Canadian. Im thinking if they don't arrive tomoro all flies will go out monday regardless. I'm not trying to be a dick but its over a week past due. I'll wait until Monday afternoon. My mailman shows up at 9am. Flies or not they go out monday. Sorry Brian.

    I agree! Great flies all around. I wish I could fish them all at the same time!

    Mine came today as well. The nice thing about the chironomid swaps is that you always get fish able flies.

    Yeah, I'd like to see the pics as well so later on when I catch or don't catch fish with a pattern, I know who to compliment or berate.

    No , you`re not the only one .,,
    Even though the flies came with toe tags , my ex-gf opened the package and removed the tags before I could see who tied what .
