  10. Sorry Piker, I received them quite awhile ago and haven't had a minute to spare. Great flies, some are down right beautiful. Waiting on the spring. Thanks everyone.
  11. Hey Vic you know those flies are tailored for my waters. Appreciate what all of you have done in this swap, it really was a quality swap. Just look at those flies.
  12. I agree with Burgie, the old rattler. Trust your judgement, haven't steered us wrong yet.
  13. Did I send deer caddis? What was I thinking? Maybe not thinking, I believe with the deer they are considered a wet fly. uh oh. Now what? see if they float fishy bob maybe I didn't put on deer
  14. Sigh. You are spoiled. The places you can get to now. They do say it is better to be in a boat when fishing.
  15. You know I'm in, my good man. I hear the roads are safer now that the old rattler is staying home for awhile.👻
  16. Glad they arrived. It was a different fly to attempt but they do look like food. 🎣
  17. Taking my umbrella and mailing them tomorrow.
  18. If I do not get washed away in the rain tomorrow I will be posting them.
