Thanks.  Sorry you had the problem and I hope all is OK.

We all have times when life interferes.  He let me know he was going to be late due to some life stuff.  Anyway I thought he was sending them, but I guess not.  They are packaged and going out today.  Sorry for the delay.  For future swaps I will send them out within 3 days of deadline date.

The flies are great!  Johnw1986 included some foam for everyone.  There are going to be two extra sets.  I am sending them to Nick Szabo for a Reel Recovery donation.

Been scanning the photos. Keep me in mind for next year. Do they all have to be the same or a mix of patterns?

Normally you tie one of the same pattern for each person (usually 12) in the swap.  Then you get one back from each person.  Each person gets at least 12 flies, some tie an extra, some send little gifts, etc.  Watch for a swap to join and read the rules.

Darrell, thanks for the reply. As long it is something simple.

Flies look great and a nice variety!  Thanks again for hosting and I'll keep an eye on my mail!  Now I have TWO good things to look out for.  Just got a call from the transplant center that they have a letter from my donor's family for me.  I just passed my 5 year anniversary with my kidney and this is the first contact I'll have with them! 

The weathers nice and the birds are chirping - I guess it'll be a pretty good day!

Okay, I'm looking at that one on the far right that looks like a version of a Crease Fly. I'm thinking that's nice but why the big orange belly? DOH...toetag.

Figured the orange foam would make for good hi-vis indicators. I have more orange foam than I know what to do with!

Yours were sent out.  I don't know how I missed getting one for myself.

I also sent Steve-Stabgnid's pheasant flies out with this swap to those who were in that swap.  I am remodeling a house and living in it.  I think the Stonefly swap will be my last to host for a while until I get some chaos reigned in.  Steve, I apologize that I keep messing up.  You are an amazing tyer that I look up to as someone I admire and learn from.

Had so much foam in my mailbox that it started to float!  Thanks for all the fine ties my friends and thanks for hosting a fine swap Darrell!
