I got a nice box of flies from "dad of molly" (?). I have no idea who that is, but look forward to spring and using the hoppers.

Who got my gift?

I received a very nice set of flies from jmckaughan, who , I believe, is now going by the name "Wooden Legs." (Thanks! Easier for me to remember how to spell.) There were under the tree last night when we returned from spending the afternoon at the "In-Laws" house. Opening the package brought a very pleasant ending to the Christmas gifting season.
Thanks jmckaughan/Wooden Legs & thanks to Vicrider for hosting. Great job on what must be a really tough swap to host.
PS. I'm scheduled for cataract surgery on Thursday. Prayers appreciated. Hope my vision for tying will be greatly increased.

Thanks to VCRider for coordinating and hosting this swap.
I received a very nice, large group of flies from ATXDiscGolfer. Thanks!!
The true fisherman will fish for what is hitting. If minnows are all that is hitting, he will fish for minnows.

C'mon guys, that's only half the presents that went out. Isn't it proper to thank a gift giver for the time put into your package? Pics if possible but at least acknowledgement.

Joe, I received your swap gift. I can say I'm blown away. Being a part of this forum means we all have a love for things that are made by hand. I am truly grateful for such a high quality gift. Its the perfect fly holder for stowing my latest creations on their test run to my "neighborhood" stream. Let's not forget about the flies! Lots of inspiration and fish catching to be done! I mostly tie streamers, so I'm glad to have the smaller trout flies. Thanks for providing some fishing related goodness under my tree this year.
Lastly, my apologies for the delayed response. This has been the first time I've sat down at my desk since before Christmas. Lots of traveling and family time. I hope you all had as great a holidays. Cheers!
...also, I'm curious as to who received mine.

I am so glad I didn't try this swap. My "present" would have been the fly tying equivalent of the "hand print turkey" from kindergarten.

I finally got around to taking pictures of my Christmas package. Big thank you to Dubs for the nice box and assortment of flies. it was really nice to get to open this on Christmas. For sure it was the first gift I opened!
Another nice bonus he also included a patch of deer hair from his 2015 bow hunt.
Thank you Dubs and thank you Santa Claus for putting this together!
