Sorry guys, my fault on the delay. I guess I made a mistake in the address, they were returned to me today via USPS. I will have them back out in the mail by the weekend with the correct address!

Thanks for keeping us posted (pun not intended :) )  EuroOrBust. I will keep an eye out for your flies. Once they arrive, I will post to this thread indicating that I've received them, and, also when I expect to mail everyone's flies out.

EuroOrBust your flies arrived last night. I will get everything sorted and fly sets on the way back to everyone no later than Saturday.

Wife picked up a great bunch of flies today. Wish I'd have had a few on the White. Don't know if would have helped but would have fished flies I knew who tied. I did fish many swap flies but once they hit my fly boxes I forget who tied them. Small beadheads from swaps and my vise caught most fish but the Wooly Bugger variant I tied for this swap also caught and lost a few fish.

I believe that was EuroOrBust's pattern -- impresssive, no doubt!
