    That's 11 of them. We've still got a slot saved for FISHN50, who tied up some Seth Green Emergers. When his flies arrive I'll update the thread with a pic and recipe.

    These flies will be in the mail to all of the swap members tomorrow. Enjoy fishing them!

    nice stuff and since I hate to tie the tiny ones, I'll definitely be looking forward to this box of flies.

    The flies were mailed off today, so you should all be receiving them shortly after New Year's.

    Thanks for the pictures and recipes! I look forward to receiving them and even more to fishing them in the spring.
    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.

    Thank you for all of your hard work Allan. Nice pictures.
    Unreal everyone. Just great. I can't believe some of the things that I saw above, splaying fibbets on a #32, woven body on a #24, WOW.
