    No need. Keep them as good karma coming back to you after that newtyer1 fiasco. The only thing I want back is a picture of my fly in a fish's mouth!

    Hey Travis, I was planning on sending an extra of each since I forgot I was part of the 6. Hey, it's my first swap. Could you please put those in the Mayfly Aviator pile?

    I plan on giving all the extras to him, except for the ones Gary tied especially for me

    Tried mailing mine today but the postal nazi didn't like my packaging. Was on my to a job and didn't have time to "fix" it. Will go out tomorrow a.m. for sure.

    Thanks...I re-tested the ones with the golden pheasant tied in as an under-wing. a resounding success. I had many more fish commit outright to that than any other fly I threw.

    Excellent to know! I'm going to fish the rogue in two weeks and hopefully the stones will be out soon enough for me to give it a go!

    Got the flies...great ties! I feel a little under qualified for this one, but I do know that the fish like it...

    I'll probably be testing these out in a couple of weekends...

    Got mine today too! Great ties all. What you guys can do with foam is amazing, I'm terrible with it. Travis, what did you use for the underwing?

    Randall, what hook did you use?
