  1. Shipped this A.M. Tracking # 9500115916082129992078 Thanks for hosting! TT
  2. Flys went out this morning. USPS tracking# 9500115916082123988503 TT
  3. Just got my set. great flys all ! Only one problem…… now I need to tie a dozen or so of most of them! ( I have flys that I tie that are really close to a couple of them). Note: You guys that can tie up those sweeet woven flys, you have my admiration, nice job. TT
  4. I’m in, Ill do a spider pattern. Tt
  5. Ok I’m in. This should be fun finding a bug to tie. TT
  6. The story……sad, but true. We have a four month old 50 lb mischievous Golden Doodle ( Bailee) that likes to be in on everything. And in general a P.I.T.A. Her saving grace is she is KILLER cute. Couldn’t put her outside, it was stormy and pouring down rain. Portland Oregon in March, you know the drill. So I snuck off to the bedroom to spread out all the fly boxes and envelopes on the bed to distribute them, it’s the only space we have large enough, other then kitchen counters and the dining room table. But Bailee loves to grab stuff off the counters and tables at this point , (We are working hard on her manners) so, that was out of the question. Figured I would be safe in the bedroom with the door shut. Sooooo I was almost done, just adding the extras, when my cat (Sage, she lives indoors and often hides under the bed from the rambunctious pup ), decides to get out from under the bed and jump up right in the middle of the fly boxes, two boxes went flying, flys everywhere. No, no hooks got into the cat, thank goodness. My wife was skeptical about flys on the bed, myself I couldn’t see the problem with it.I tried to explain to her “I was only using MY SIDE of the bed. She wasn’t amused. But we made it through the night with no animals or humans requiring hook extractions. I figure that alone is a win right there. : , ) I think, I put it all back to right. Only two boxes were involved in the carnage, and most flys were toe tagged, so fingers crossed, all is right with the world. I know this sounds a lot like a “The Dog Ate My Homework” kind of thing, but sadly, no. Just a little insight into my life as it really is. Trouttramp The culprit: Sage my cat Bailee the dog, a month ago, she is bigger now, and TALLER!
  7. Tracking #’s Thank you all. GREAT FLYS
  8. The flys will go out tomorrow AM, from PDX We had a USPS miss-hap so: The sets will be one set short, BUT, one member tied up an extra set. So there should still be 10 sets in each box. Also some extra flys got sent my way, so all of you got a few bonus flys. Hopefully you all get the correct flys, in the middle of distributing flys my Cat Sage decided she wanted to help. Cats are rarely good help……as was the case here. I believe I got it straightened out correctly. If not, feel free to publicly roast me to no end. Thanks all, all the flys looked great! And thanks for the extra goodies and flys. TT

  10. I am looking for some of those little gadgets you use to hold onto your flys whilst getting a photo. Don’t know what they are called. See attached pic. Thanks, TK
  11. Ya, for the cost of postage each way, we could have met up for beers. I just hope they didn’t get totally lost. Probably got delivered to the wrong address. TT
  12. Due to a USPS Issue with one set, I will be holding off on mailing back the flys for a day or two. On the bright side, I think this set of flys will be worth the wait. ALL the sets look great. There is a HUGE amount of talent on this board! Trouttramp
