Just back from Bonefishing today... :)

We had our mail held while we were away, so we'll be getting a "tub" or two of it today. If the last set of flies are in it, then I'll get the pics and recipes posted and the flies shipped out to everyone tomorrow. With that timing, some of you should start seeing your flies show up before next weekend.

Your flies are in the mail! You should start receiving them by the weekend.

Thanks to everyone who participated in this swap; particularly those of you who doubled-up in this swap and the round one swap and those of you who provided more than one pattern for this swap; all so that everyone could get a full set of flies.

Let's hope some big fish will be coming your way as you swing these patterns on your favorite water.
