Yeah, and I meant to mention Flygirl's contribution. Leave it to a GIRL, the "Helen Shaw" among us to tie her's in pink! (I think, it's pink. I'm colorblind.) 

 

Great tie, Flygirl. Just had to tease!

Well, great day at the PO. Carp flies in, Biot flies in. Skagit line for new spey rod in. Like Christmas. All the flies look great from both swaps. The biot flies may be the best overall trout group ever sent in for a swap. Lots of good swaps in past but this is especially nice. Thanks all.

Had the privilege of afternoon coffee with fishingbob (you know--the man, the myth, the legend), and picked up a fabulous set of flies. Kudos to all tiers (nicely done!), and to Bob for another way cool swap.
