Mine got stamped and handed off to the post office this morning. 

I wonder how those things will fish with stamps on them?? :)   I look forward to seeing your ties.

Foam caterpillars. My first time working with foam. Working with fire makes it hard to get uniform legs, unfortunately this is my least consistent batch. I’m just getting busy and want to make sure the flies get out.  I always appreciate any tips or feedback.

They look nice!  And remember - NOTHING in nature is perfect!

Caterpillars are on the way. Also wanted to show my first attempt at a salmon fly using the coastal deer hair kindly provided by @dogfacedoc

Currently giving mouth-to-mouth to Chasing_Tails drowned ants!

Looks like a very nice addition to the swap my friend!

Had a plague of locusts (well, OK - fine looking foam hoppers!) hit my mail today.  Nice ties dogfacedoc.

Some fat foam caterpillars marched into the house from my mailbox - thanks Swmalone for the ties.

Halfway through my Half-drowned crickets.  Should have an Orchestra (yes, I looked up the term for a group of crickets) headed your way tomorrow morning.

This is the one week warning to get your terrestrials tied and in the mail.  

Looking forward to seeing my house crawling with your flies!

Stabgnid I, like Camo Clad, couldn't reach you via PM.  Let me know if there are any issues on this swap as well.  Thanks.
