    My foam cinnamon ants are no longer foam, or cinnamon. I couldn't find a the right colored marker and I also couldn't the foam to do what I wanted. So now you get a #20 carpenter ant constructed with dubbing balls.

    After the damage that they inflicted on my front porch a number of years ago, very little would make me feel better than drowning a few carpenter ants (real or tied) and catching a few fish with them!

    Mark the flies are on their way. I am sending these in with two other swaps. I tried to send you a PM but I am not sure my PM's are getting through to you. Please let me know if you get a PM from me.

    Alright, I took a long hiatus away from the vise. I have 14 CDC & Peacock Beetles (Swap #1) and 12 Carpenter Ants (Swap #2) ready for shipping to Mark. Is this the right number of flies? Thanks.

    That's the correct number. Everything is "12" except the terrestrial #1, which is at 14. I'm on the way to the Post Office today with 5 boxes of flies for swaps, and a couple of each tie for Mark, for his efforts! 72 flies going out in the mail....

    My wife thinks that I've gone crazy. I ask her "Gone?"!!!

    Hey Mark, I mailed my two sets at least a week ago and then forgot about it...did you receive them? I just remember and then got worried.
