Swap flies on the way

I received Eddie's flies yesterday, sorted the whole group of flies, and sent them out this morning. Thanks to everyone for the great job, and the extra meister flies. Not necessary, but nice.

When I get a chance I'll post Eddie's fly into the archive. Do you have a name for this great fly Eddie?

Thanks again everyone!

got 'em

What a nice diversion from the work day to have 6 hand-tied beauties show up on my desk!

Nice job everyone. Wow this near-nuff craw is tied perfectly. And who sent the monster hellagramite? That will be in my flybox when I head up to the Salmon River next weekend - excellent proportions and the buggy legs look like they could get caught up in a big kype-jaw nicely

Thanks Mark for putting together such a great swap!

Dave

Thumbs up Got mine too . . .

When I got home from work I arrived at my front porch grumbling about the GD snow and ice . . . again. My mood instantly changed when I opened my mailbox and saw the little brown box in there

Great job guys -- can't wait to try them out! Now, if only the weather would cooperate . . .

Fabulous job guys - wow there is some real talent out there. I was lucky to get a near 'nuff craw too - absolutely brilliant! All of the flies look real fishy

Nice job everyone and a BIG thank you to Mark!!!

I got mine yesterday. They look great. Now if we could get some warm water, or at least some without ice. And whose helegramite is that.

Mine arrived today, great job everyone !

It appears I can use just about all of these for both warm and cold water fishing. Got an idea for a couple of new steelhead patterns at least from these.

Thanks again

Hal
