I've sent everyone involved in the swap a private message with my address, etc... For those swapsters that haven't responded back to my email address included in the PM, could you? I'm trying to get ahead of the impending government shutdown of the FFIM board and make sure I have a contact avenue for folks in case the upgrade doesn't go smoothly and/or folks decide to switch user names.

Thank you,
Hunter

First of the flies have arrived. Thank you 1weight- they look great. And as an FYI- he included an extra fly pattern for everyone, too.

Best,
Hunter

Montana Man’s flies arrived today and they look GREAT! This is shaping up to be a good batch of flies.

Glad they made it in time!

The pattern is courtesy of Bruno, Catalan/Pyrenees mountain guide. Don’t gink them.... but if you have any duck preen oil, brush the wing back, it actually made a staggering difference.

Peasy207, Tim D, and Igloo Lake-

Check your PM's. I'm looking for a status update on flies.

Best,
Hunter

Let the public shaming begin (says the guy who had them in 3 days early ==> me!) :lol:
