Thanks Kerry, Bear and Joni.

I finished up my flies today; actually made my own deadline!

So, as soon as Chris' and Mark's flies arrive, we'll be finished.

Right now, I plan to photo the flies next weekend, post them along with the recipes and send them out the first of the week of the 8th. If any of you have not sent me the recipe for your pattern then please send it to me in a PM this week - thanks.

Well, it's March 1st and, miracle of miracles, both Mark's and Chris' flies showed up in the mail today. A swap competed on time! That's great!

Chris, you're Red Abbey's look great; better in person than in the pics and, Mark, those Rutledge's are very nice; I particularly like the semi-low water treatment of the body on the hook.

Thanks to both of you two for the extra flies; they will get a workout this Spring up in Pulaski, NY.

So, we're done.

It's just up to me now to get the pics finished up, the pics and recipes posted to the forum and whole lot shipped out to you before I head off again next week.

I'll do my best and will post once more when I ship the flies.

I just posted the pics and the recipes for this swap to the sub-forum entitled: 'Fly Swap Pictures".

A great collection of Salmon Flies! They should be in the mail to each of you early next week; proibably on Monday 8th. Have a look over on the Fly Swap Pictures sub-thread and let us know what you think.

Thanks to everyone who participated.

I received my Salmon Flies yesterday, and they are fantastic! Thanks Allan for hosting and everyone for the great flies. I feel the same way Bear does, these need to go in a shadow box!

I got the flies in the mail today, and was positively thrilled What a great bunch of flies. Absolutely awsome! I could not like them more. I may frame them. Best package I have got in the mail since Christmas! Wow! Some very skilled tiers on this one.
