    Finished mine yesterday too late to get 'em mailed, and heading to the P.O. shortly. Took about 3 or 4 times longer than I expected to get 'em done. I'm just too slow at tying. Sheesh!:D

    Thanks guys.
    My intent was to introduce this pattern to more people because it has been so good for me (along with the Platte River Spider Blue tied for one of Ira's previous swaps.)

    OK incase you have not heard yet, Patrick and Jim just made it in under the deadline. Mary on the other hand... ? Should we wait for her flies or should I send out tomorrow what I have now?

    Make the call folks, I'm cool either way, but that's easy for me to say because I have all your flies and I don't have to wait anymore to use them.

    She hasn't posted since her request to join the swap. I think it's safe to send them out. Send the extra set to Chris Scoones.

    I say send them out on Saturday. Give one extra day. I think she did respond saying she was working on them.....who knows maybe the world ends tomorrow and you won't have to mail anything.

    I'm all for an extension until the flies are received.

    Mary's flies are in. Look for all of the flies in the mail after Christmas.

    Alright folks, all the flies are in their packages and ready to be shipped tomorrow (Wednesday the 26th) depending on where you are, you should see them this week! Some are tagged, and some are not. My camera is currently sitting in my mother in laws garage up by pass lake so no photos until I'm able to pick it up (Maybe Thursday). I'll be honest I didn't keep track of everyones flies so after I take the photos, I'll need some of you to pipe up and claim them if you didn't tag. No biggie, but I will pester the heck out of you if you forget.

    I also would like to know the names and authors of the flies as I intend to make a shadow box of the Winter Lake set. Speak up or I'll sic Ira on you. And.... you'll be famous over in Moses Lake land.

    All the flies are in the mail or on the porch or in a fly box! Good swap guys, good swap.
