Not a public shaming (yet). I just finished my flies yesterday and thought I'd check in with those whom I hadn't heard from. Igloo Lake is on top of it and his flies are in the mail as of today. Just waiting on the last few sets of flies and I'll get these back out the door.

I’ve received all flies but one set. I was waiting on that set of flies, but whereas the tyer hasn’t responded to messages- I think I’m going to package up what I have and send out to folks. I’m traveling for a bit, but will try to get them in the mail soon. I will let folks know when I’ve mailed them.

As long as they are here before dry fly season, that works for me. Safe travels!

Not yet- thanks for the nudge. I started sorting them out and them my wife wanted the table for tax prep and after I put them away, well- I forgot about them. I'll try to get them in the mail this weekend.

Best,
Hunter

At this rate we may actually miss dry fly season :)

Thanks for the update Hunter. Feel free to include a cut of that tax return in my box.
