Your flies are in the mail! You should start receiving them by the weekend.

Thanks to everyone who participated in this swap; particularly those of you who doubled-up in this swap and the round one swap and those of you who provided more than one pattern for this swap; all so that everyone could get a full set of flies.

Let's hope some big fish will be coming your way as you swing these patterns on your favorite water.
