I've been meaning to ask...
What's the best way to ship these? If I mail a flybox full of my flies will the same box get shipped back to me or do I use little paper envelopes or tubes?
I'm not sure if or how to label these, either. Anybody know or have ideas?

If you send me a fly box you bet I will return it to you, no problem there.
As far as tagging, just a small strip of paper with your name and the name of the fly. Stick the fly in it.

Thanks BlueBird. Your nymph is going to be killer in the Spring or if I get to Chautauqua Creek in December for some Browns!

Hi Joni,
Sent my size 20 BWO Batwing emergers out today. Gee, they sure didn't take up much space in the flybox!

But, to let you know, I went out fishing on Friday (finally!); it was tough pickings but I ended up with one average brown and one pretty nice rainbow. Caught the brown on the BWO batwing emerger and caught the rainbow on the Spring Fling Soft Hackle that I'd tied for the last swap.....and believe me, I tried quite a few different flies that day. So, I can saw wholeheartedly ....they do work!

Joni,
Mine and Lily's will be in the mail today or tomorrow. It only takes a day or so for the flies to ship about 30 miles so expect them shortly.

John
