Had to reship my flies..came back from USPS......sent along a couple promo pens in an unpadded envelope....package got caught in a machine in the sorting facility in Scarborough. Got a reaming from my post office on the merits of a padded envelope....Jeesh!

On their way again...sorry.

Yes they should have been, normally mail seems to take 3-4 days, but they didn't arrive until yesterday Sept 21 despite having a post mark of Sept 12 (9 days)-- maybe they were hung up because of the floods?

Anyway, looks like that will be the last set so I'll take pics and mail them out to everyone in the next day or so.

Excellent! I can't wait to test drive this swap. I wish I had them today, I fished a wonderful little stream that I was told held big Bull Trout. I believe the source and seeing the water made sense. In the last deep hole I tied on a Drunken Sailor, cast out and stripped it back over the deep part, a big plunge pool...at the very end of the drift a nice cutthroat charged out and smacked it. He got off, next cast another came up out of the blue depth, I missed that one. Then I bush whacked back to my car through some serious bear woods.

It's that time of the year!

Thanks, Mark and all the tiers!

Got mine! I've already been thinking about when and where each is going to catch fish for me.

Mark, when did you mail? I was gone all of last week and just got back home Friday evening. Just wondering if I have to interrogate my 3 year old...most packages that arrive she decides are from her gram'ma for her (and she is usually right!).

Can't wait to get my hands on these flies. The Cottonwoods are turning yellow and that tells me it's time to get the streamers out!

Alright! I got my package, what a great pile of flies. Thank you all, seriously, this is an amazing selection of flies! Three did not have tags (which is fine) just wondering who's who: A big articulated green and chartruse marabou beast, a beautiful little tan bunny strip w/ wooly head and eyes, and another little beauty with a striped, spun deer head and saddle feather tail. Great little streamers! A great, big streamers!

Man, I cannot wait to get on the water!

Thanks all, and thank Swapmeister Mark!
