    I am not O.C. but my chronies are finished. It's been kinda cold, wet and windy over here so indoor fishing is the best. Need to toe tag and they are ready.

    Before I start, I just want to make sure that I understand this one. So 12 tiers one pattern but we should only have to tie 11 (I don't need you to send me my own fly back to me)? Is this correct?

    Yes correct. Id like to have everyone finished by the end of the month but dont wait that long if you are finished. Send them my way with postage enclosed and i will notify everyone when they come in and get them out immediately after I receive the whole lot. Again make sure you read the instructional thread if this is your first swap. Here is my address.

    Finished mine up this morning. It is a new pattern to me, but a really fun tie and I like the way that it turned out. I'll ship them off Monday.

    I absolutely did....I use TP instead of kleenex so I always have a roll on my desk. It was the only white background I had handy. I'm impressed by you recognition of it based on the embossing. I'll send you a 5 pack of those flies if you guess the brand correctly.
