I personally sent them this morning Priority Mail with enclosed postage and toe tags. They should arrive Monday.

I received a very nice set of Quill Gordons today from Ard!

You were right, they made it just fine packed loose in the soap dish; completely intact with the hackles in good shape.

So, that's 5 sets in now; we're getting near the halfway mark.

Keep 'em coming!

Quite the packaging job with the envelope huh I'm happy to hear they made the trip all the way from here to Maine.

And WT's package made it here today! Another great set of flies; a bivisible variant pattern.

So, we're half way there now, with 6 sets of flies received to date and still about 3 weeks left to the deadline. Let me know how the rest of you are coming along with your flies.

Don't forget to send the recipes for your patterns if you don't have them on the toe tags.

The flies, so far, have all been really nice. I'm already wishing it was Spring time!

Looking to be a great swap! Based on pictures that have been posted I think I'm going to learn a lot from the flies I receive.

Default Re: Time for Another Fly Swap.............!!

For those of you that haven't tied up your patterns yet; or at least haven't gotten them in the mail yet, how are you coming along?

We're only a little more than a week away from Christmas now and not much, generally, gets done between Christmas and New Years; except for a lot of partying . So, I'm getting just a little anxious here....

If you haven't finished up yet, then drop me a line and let me know how you're coming along with your patterns. Thanks.

I'm hoping that December 31st, or earlier, will be the day that I send them back to all of you.
