Can everyone get the flies to me BY The last week in February because I want them in the mail to everyone BEFORE March 1... OK... 7 flies.... 6 for the swap and the 7th to be auctioned off at the Wilmington show... and with Joe Branham and Dick Brown participating we will have some real interest in that raffle which should help out the board..... Of course I might ...misplace the 7th set................just kidding

Participants- Me, Dble Haul, SeanM, Adrian, Jfbasser, DFix, Flytyer1948, and Marshrunner. 8 we can do this. Sean has one running on another board which Myself, flytyer1948 and Marshrunner are also participating all the more important to keep the number at 7. Please drop in a couple bucks for cost of postage and the protective envelop I buy at the PO...or just include a self addressed stamped protective envelop ...your choice.
