Larry, thanks for the update; I'll be looking for them in the mail.
Eunan, sounds good; that timing is fine for the swap.
I received another set of flies while I was away; the Woolly Buggers from ia-trouter. They looks great!
But we're a little thin on flies received to date. Here'a a run-down for everyone.
Ard / Hardyreels - Light Spruce - RECEIVED
2. baseman1 - featherwing
3. s. fontinalis - Black Ghost - to be mailed on the 30th
4. ia trouter - Woolly Bugger - RECEIVED
5. brookfieldangler - Sculpin
6. gatortransplant - streamer TBD
7. theboz - Black Beauty Dace - RECEIVED
8. Pocono - Kennebago Smelt - RECEIVED

10. biggie robs - Hot Core Baitfish

12. mudbug - Bendback streamer - to be mailed on the 30th
But, that leaves 50% of the patterns not yet accounted for.
So, baseman1, brookfieldangler, gatortransplant, biggie robs, chased and mudbug, give me a shout and let me know how you're coming on your patterns and when you think they'll make it to me. If any of you have already shipped and just haven't posted on it, then you can disregard this message.
