I had forgot to mention that the little soap dish was completely distroyed, which really seemed strange to me also in that I have used a similar container that I think I received from Allan in a previous swap and it has worked flawlessly, but who knows what will happen once it enters into the USPS system.
Its great to hear that the flies are arriving, way before I thought they would.

I received my flies as well. Thank you Larry and all the tyers! This is a really fishy set of flies. I'll have no qualms doing my one whole day of fishing armed with nothing else but this set in my pocket. The hard part will be saving them all for that day.

Joe is up for the challenge, if anyone else is let's make new thread whoever goes first...a wet fly swap only fishing day with lots of photos.

Larry, did I get one of my flies back because we were short a tyer? You should have kept it as I have a half dozen spares littering my desk already. Thanks all!

John: Yes, we were down one person so I returned one of each tiers flies back. No big deal, I had as much fun as everyone else did and can't wait to get these flies in the water.

This sure is good news, the Wyoming Post Office is in high gear this week, at any rate it is good to hear the flies are arriving.

Flies arrived today!! Great news. They do look fishy. Amazing work folks.
I would love to see photos of them in action. I would be down for a new thread focusing on the results of them all. What worked for who, where, kinda thing.

Thanks for helping them get back to me safely Larry. I'll sure them up better next time.

cheers
