Simple but deadly fly swap update.

The due date for the flies is fast approaching . Over the weekend I received the flies from PMflyfisher & Dblhaul. They look great guys.

I tied 1/2 of mine between clearing snow, family stuff & finding the fly that the puppy somehow got and chewed on. Thank goodness I pinched the barb.

Go Buckeyes

John I sent mine this morning. I was too busy cheering for the Buckeyes to get much done over the weekend.

Hal, I'm going to do this like Striblue did with the recent salt water fly swap and post the pictures then ask the submitter to put the recipe in a response to the picture. It seemed to work well.

Eddie, the message just went out to the address in your post. e-mail me at desjardinsj@rcn.com if you didn't get it.

Fred, I deserve a dope slap. You appropriately replied the same way my wife does if I say dinner was "Interesting". I should have said They looked good,which they do.

Brad & Quentin, I look forward to seeing your flies.
