OK gang, the packages hit the Post Office just before 5 o"clock Tuesday afternoon.  Thanks so much to all the tyers, a really great box of flies!  There is something in this set for any Opening Day situation I believe.  Thanks much for those of you who sent me some extras, and thanks to those of you who tied two patterns.  Please enjoy fishing these flies and I hope to swap with you all again next year.  Tight Lines one and all.

Bob thank you for hosting. Great flies. Mine came last week, but I wasn't here Bob. Thank you for hosting and your friendship.

 

Great flies everyone!

This is a really nice batch of flies, thanks again. Here are the pics I promised, by name of fly in reverse alphabetical order... apologies where my photography fell a little short.

Thanks for posting the photos. I used my fly this weekend in the North Toe River with two split shot as the bottom of two flies. Caddis are a big deal in a lot of NC streams.

Can't wait to fish these,... unfortunately it's looking like this season might not start for me until the last half of June...
