Looks like the checks are in the mail! Mine are done as well. Just waiting on a non forum friend of mine to finish and I'll get everything back to ya in the mail.

If you guys are interested in another go at this, once this is wrapped up, say after trout fest, let me know.

Just a quick update to everyone. I am waiting on two sets of flies still. One set (Jolague) UPS has and has tried to deliver once but we were not home. We signed the card and left it but he /she did not leave them today. Hopefully well get them tomorrow. Charlies' I should have Wednesday. That being said I would like to have them all back in the mail to you by the end of the week. As you all probably know we did not make it to the magic # 12 tiers. Some guys tied the 13 flies and some only tied 12. As it turns out it's not a big deal. What I did so far is double the set of flies for Trout Fest and add the leftovers back into your return sets trying not to return multiples of flies you tied. Hopefully this pleases everyone. I look foward to the feedback from everyone and hope you all enjoyed the swap. I look forward to doing it again. I am always open for suggestions as this was my first attempt at doing this in any way. Thanks for all the time you invested and I hope to meet all of you at trout fest.

P.S. Most of you included recipies and or support material for your flies wich I coppied and included in the return packages.

Guys, please let me know when you receive your flies. I hope everyone enjoyed it and I look forward to doing it again. With one under my belt there are a few changes we could make to improve it.

Look forward to hearing from you guys,
