Casey, Just a word to tell you I put my flies in the mail today; you should receive them Saturday or Monday. Hope they help the ladies catch lots of fish.

You should have received a box from me FEB 22nd and 25th?
It's possible, since my ties are in high demand, that they may have been diverted to some exotic location unknown.
I'll check the tracking numbers tomorrow.

Casey
Tracking shows flys were delivered to your address on 22 and 23 FEB.
Checked and I did use the correct addy.

owlman, your flies are here! the specialty Golden Retrievers are sure to tempt those overfed rainbows; they seem to like flashy pink stuff, contrary to what all the old fogeys try to tell us! your friend's ants are a education in themselves--visible, simple, durable; in short, just the ticket. (can't wait to try my share: i've been told a 9' 3wt is perfect for spring bluegills and so that rod i seldom use will find a niche at last. the ants will go really well on it!)

Thank you so much!

flies are here, walt! thanks so much. when we get the picture-putting-in-thingie fixed, look for your Pink Winged Caddis. you all just have to see these--they are simply a wonderful introduction to a "classic" fly pattern.

Sorry Casey, I hoped to have had them out last Saturday, but didn't make it. I've got 42 of 56 tied so far (doing 4 sets of 14). Will have the tying done and in the mail Saturday for sure.

Bass_Bug, hon, when do you have time to live life? between tying immense quantities of flies for the ladies and trouble shooting balky websites, and working...well, it amazes me what folks around here accomplish.

lately we've had a new mail carrier so the issue of sodden mail has been solved. now if he could only get to us before suppertime. what do you bet he's doing two routes? for a while we were afraid the PO had dropped Tuesdays from the delivery schedule.

I'm sorry Casey, did I misrepresent myself and imply I actually have time for a life?

Casey,

Here's the the final product. I went with the Pink-n-Purple theme with 2 sets of 14 spiders, and 2 sets of 14 Gurglers, all in size #6. Hope the ladies have fun with them. The spiders should have great movement, and the Gurglers should float high all day long. All making for great top water action.

The picture seemed to have bled out a bit of color. The spiders on the right look blue, but are really a deep purple

do any of you remember your parents helping you buy a birthday present for your friend and how jealous you felt of the friend when you actually had to part with it?

Bass_Bug, hon, i want some!! oh, yeah...i can tie my own. off to the desk!!

Rog, thanks so much for yet another wonderful collection of flies. they are simply perfect!!

BTW, the boardcode which makes my print big enough to read won't come up. anyone else notice this, or is it my own personal resident gremlin?

Casey,
You're using Firefox right? I am too and mine looks ok, but I recall we had a font size issue a couple of years ago. Is it every thing or just text in the posts? I'll go back thru old posts and see what I can find.

If anyone remembers what it was and finds it first please post.

By the way Casey, you're welcome for the CFR flies, and there's something extra in the package for you as a CFR volunteer.

My wife and I met Casey and her husband for dinner last night. It was an anjoyable evening and I am glad to be able to tie flies for her casting for recovery folks.
Casey, when I get home I will try some gurglers on the back of a long shank hook and send them to you.
