Flies went out yesterday morning.

Thanks for the update Bob.

BTW how is the back doing?

I feel for you buddy my lower back has gone out twice before.

Between the back, and other pains...glucosamine is always a good friend.

Realizing I haven't been able to find them again at 99c store, I did a little hunting...

Found it at Dollar tree:

They're good for swaps, also good for housing / storing sets of related flies. They stack.

Thanks for the tip...wow and they stack!

How much does it cost to ship for a swap.

Same price as for a mints tin mailing. I can't remember exactly but I think $3 and change each way, maybe closer to $4.
