    Ira, will you update the first post to show which flies have been received and which haven't. I need to know how slow I am.

    I've got the flies finished now but want to post pictures first. Charging up the camera battery.

    Bakerite, that is a ton of spun deer hair. I've often wanted to play with a pattern like this but always end up indicatoring to create the same effect. This pattern will change that for me. Nice JOB!

    Way to go USPS! That was impressive fast service. Irafly. this is one of the few bugs that I have used that fish will come back to multiple times....I think the deer hair has a lot of "give" so it feels real to them.

    That makes sense. Now if I can figure out how to tie it on a jig with a bead. :)

    Gary Knowles's just arrived and they look as good as the pictures. I'll have to tape up the envelope that you sent the flies in because you must have forgotten to slip your return envelope in there before you sent it out to me. No big, been there.

    Sorry, I forgot the return envelope as well. And if the $5 bucks I put in wasn't enough, I'd be happy to send you a check

    I completely forgot! If you can tape that guy up for the return that would be great. I'll drop some cash in the mail for your return expense ASAP

    Toe tag the flies and include a stamped return envelope.

    One more thing, tie up an extra set for your self so you have a complete set of the winter fly swap.

    The $5 was plenty and then some. No big deal.

    Really, honestly no big deal. As the swapmeister I expect the occasional miss. I wasn't mentioning to cause guilt, probably shouldn't have said anything at all. My bad.

    I scrapped my #2 fly (bh pheasant tail nymph). Decided a streamer pattern would be better. Last winter this fly did well at Pass and then last weekend it was the hot fly again on Lone when not much else was working. This is Craven's Platte River Special but with liquid lace body.

    Strung hacke is HARD to find right now so I'm using what I have and it's not perfect...
