    Not for you to be sorry at all. I am dropping it in the mail on my way to work in the morning, thanks for your patience.
    Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.

    Gittyup! Hey guys, the deadline is Thursday. Friday/Saturday are the two busiest days of the year at my place of work but I've been photographing the flies as they come in, so I should be able to photograph the rest and I hope to get them in the mail on Monday.

    What size hook are those, mudbug? I could be a killer skwala nymph (early spring stonefly) if its big enough. I really like the double bead and v-rib (?) body.

    If you guys did not include a recipe with the flies to me, either PM or just post them here if you feel like it. As I said before, I will post pics to the "fly swap pictures" thread when it's over and could add the recipe's as well if I have them.

    If you don't mind I will add my recipe when the picture is up it will make more sense.....I think.

    I was planning on an SXS but here are the basics...

    Hook - #14 TMC 200R (Think 3x long emerger hook)
    Lead - A bunch wraps of 0.015 lead wire (I tried the lead tape and hated it)
    Thread - Danville 210D in Chartreuse laid flat for the body to create a taper. Uni 8/0 in black for the thorax.
    Body - Olive vinyl D-Rib with some brown sharpie highlights.
    Thorax - AZ Sparkle Nymph dubbing in olive/black
    Head - Two 2.4mm Olive/brown brass beads.
