    Ira, I say you keep them. Some of us screwed you with not providing return postage. The PO Office screwed you by charging wrong shipping. You are the swap master. You have been patient with us all. I say you keep all extra flies.

    I am in no hurry to get the flies and I am happy to wait until they arrive. I'd actually like to see his flies since I am heading that way in May to fish the BC lakes of his region.

    I can wait. If not an option, I vote that you keep the extras.

    Ira, while I already said do whatever you want, it would be cool to see what our friends from the north use. If it isn't a problem, I can wait also.

    I'm going to go ahead and hold on to the flies and mail them out when I get back to this trip, Brian, you are back in.

    My sincerest apologies for the delay fellas . I can assure you I mailed the bugs on the date I said I did .
    Maybe the pony on the express broke a leg ??

    No worries Brian. Getting stuff across the border can be quite time consuming

    Brian's flies arrived Thursday after I left for my trip. I made it back today. I will mail them all out tomorrow. I will say that I fished several of the patterns on this trip and some performed stellar. Nick's maroon Leech absolutely slayer for a couple of days and Nailbenders brown leech did as well. I need more of those and I'm already looking into those jig hooks.

    Sweet can't wait to see all the bugs. I have been tying like mad the past few days. My leech collection was decimated after Saturday. I had literally nothing left. Getting stocked back up is half the fun.

    I'm just glad something I tied for a swap caught fish!

    Nick - your leech turned out to be a theme all weekend. I happened to have a few similar ties and all mine are now shredded as well.
