10th Annual Caddis for Christmas swap - In the Mail

Recommended Posts

Jburge and Johnw's flies arrived today.  Still waiting on Troutguy's entry. 

I also wanted to share with you that I have been having some issues with my heart and am seeing some kind of medical professional every day this week.  When Bob's flies arrive, I will do my best to get them to the PO right away.  Thanks for understanding.

Sorry, mine are on their way. Merry Christmas! I was waiting to complete something for Santa. 
 

When you open the box you will understand

Well crap Bob.  This whole getting older thing comes with fine print.  Take care and take care of it.  

I can certainly wait for the flies.  If we can't wait for flies that are from a voluntary participation party we're missing something.

Bob, I don't ice fish that often - with my casting skills I always had trouble hitting the hole!  You take care of your health first, then the swap can follow.  Take care my friend!

your heart health is a hell of a lot more important than a bunch of silly little flies

Some fine ties and well worth the wait!  Now let's get Bob back to normal and THEN get the flies out we'll ALL be all set!  Please notice the order there Bob! 😉

Bob, I have been down the heart surgery route.  There I sat with two of the prettiest nurses on God's green earth and I was totally harmless.  Humbling!  Take care of yourself and I hope you get the great care I received!

 

Praying for you

OK, Troutguy's flies arrived, I will sort them this weekend and hopefully get them to the PO Monday or Tuesday.

Thanks so much for all the nice words of encouragement.  They mean more to me than you can imagine.  Happy Holidays and Tight LInes to one and all.

Flies are in the Mail along with some Mulling Mix, (for those who sent a large enough envelope) a snowflake and some Killer Bug yarn from Norm the Flytire. I have tracking numbers and will forward them by PM upon request.  Thank again for your understanding and support.  Still doing tests and appointments to find out what's next.
