They always either leave a key to a larger box or a note letting me know they are holding it, I expect it will be there when I check tomorrow, it's a very small post office and I have only ever had one problem with a package in 5 years,it was I've of those mystery fishing boxes and someone opened it up and took out the good stuff.

Just irritated. The package was an ounce over the limit for first class mail so I sent it via two day priority. Never any trouble with first class but priority seems to be a problem every time I use it.

Sorry for the hang up, everyone.
Tight lines,
David

weird that they went yup San Fran they should've gone directly to Sacramento, like I said they do silly things, sometimes I think the employee just throws them a bin for a random city in that state.

well I managed to get all the regular ones sorted out tonight I'll try to get the bonus buggers done tomorrow night and in the mail wed, I've gotta say it's a helluva set of buggers. 

 

I'm going to try dipping some bead chain in silver solder to make it heavier for eyes if anyone wants some let me know if it comes out decent I'll throw some in with your flys.

vicente, looking forward to these since crappie is one of the few fish I have to fish for here. Smaller ones are underutilized for trout but I don't have any trout within my home range so never really get to give them a try. Crappie, sand bass, and largemouths all eat them though, and I've got some nice channel catfish on them.

Picked mine up at the mailbox last evening.  WOW what an interesting box of flies.  Great job by all the tyers and thanks V for hosting.
