never mailed bulk quantity of flies before...anyone who "swaps" have any suggestions to get these boogers up north to Dble Haul?

Inside a small cardboard box with the hooks stuck into a piece of foam or meat tray works well for me.

I use whatever, depending on fly patterns; sometimes the post office box you buy, sometimes a bubble-lined mailing envelope. I've shielded some things with a cardboard sandwich; others I'll bury the point in a piece of foam.

Good suggestions....whatever you do, don't send them in a fly box that you want back soon. In a swap, you get your box back with the swap flies, but in this case I have some nice boxes that the flies will be sorted into and nothing will be headed back your way (except a big thank you :)).
