They have not, yet. Two trips to the doggy ER this week have sidetracked me (again). Flies are packaged and ready to handoff/mail though.

Btw- don’t store 100 packs of Tiemco hooks where a dog can find them. 3 boxes of hooks chewed up by my wife’s dog. Thankfully he only swallowed less than a dozen and the xrays show they’re moving through. I came home to find him prancing around the living room amongst 300 hooks scattered around the rug.

Flies will officially be going in the mail in the AM. Thanks for being patient. :?

Mike Holt and Pete Crowell- let’s find time for a handoff of your flies.

Dave,
Sounds good. We should do a hand off up my way, stripers are in heavy... fishing has been good from the boat. Let me know if you want a ride around the bay.

Sounds good Pete. I'll be in touch after this weekend (my last weekend of pre-planned activities for a while). It's time to hit the salt and find a few fish.

I received my flies Saturday. Great looking flies that will get a workout shortly.
Hunter thanks for handling the swap.
