The pictures don't do justice. These are very nice flies!
I am sending everyone a slip indicator and a small container to hold the chironomids ;-)

Thanks everyone! I love these! Special thanks to Bear and Poc for the bonus flies

I am also sending one of everyones to Blue Dun for the recovery flies.

Those are awesome. That took a lot of work not only for the ties but putting all of the pictures and recipes on the forum. As an out side observer I really appreciate the hard work and sharing. This was as enjoyable as it gets for one not involved in the swap.
