    LOL...yes but the flies are in the garage.I like where you were going
     
  3. All - My sincere apologies for sending the flies late. I had them ready to ship early last week but have been inundated with other things i.e. move, potential job change etc. I will send them out today, WABOWMAN you'll have them on Saturday.

  9. I am really impressed with everyone's ties! Sorry mine are the crappy ones out of the bunch. At least the Raccoon variant adds some variety. It's a good midge pattern on the lakes. I should have mentioned that.

    Thanks Cabo Wabowman for running the swap and thanks everyone else for the nice flies. I look forward to getting them wet!

    Got my flies in the mail today, and I am very impressed with the quality and variety of the patterns submitted by this group. Thank you everyone - now, onto hot summer days and casting large dries at the banks....

    I dont think any of them were cheesy or bad ties.I was impressed with all the ties and were great!It shows some great ways to use foam in different ways and give tiers some ideas on ways to use it in their tying.We always judge our own harder then others.

    The orange foam gurgler-style fly is very good. The SRC's and resident rainbows on the Snoqualmie cannot leave it alone. It's replaced the reverse spiders in my box. Nice work Kelvin.
