    Winner of the First Flies award for timeliness: Lumpy
    Winner of the Last to Mail award: 72Twenty
    Winner of the "I Mailed Early, but Chose Parcel Post" award: Adipose

    All the flies have come in -- Adipose sent his by parcel post on May 20 from Wyoming, and they arrived Saturday. (I think the express needs a few new ponies.) I have them all divvied up, and will mail them out this evening.

    The flies have gone out. You should get them later this week, by Monday at the latest for those of you in far-flung places.

    I will say that the organization took a bit more effort than I thought, but it was totally worth it. I'm looking forward to our next swap.

    I got mine this weekend! Great job guys. Now if I can just stop going to bachelor parties, baby showers and wedding showers I may catch some fish this summer!

    My plan was to get a picture of most of the flies with a fish attached to it and post them up but I've already lost a few to some rather nice browns, bows and cutts, the fishing in central Wyoming is finally start to pick up.
    These flies are some real gems, thanks to everyone involved and drop me a line if you're in the area and want to see some parts of Wyoming off the tourist trail.

    How are things fishing down that way adipose? We are pretty well destroyed up here for the time being. High water is great for boating, shitty for fishing. Maybe a Wind trip is in order sunday........

    C'mon down, the wind above Boysen is blown out but the canyon is fishing well from first light to when the sun first hits the water(tricos if there is no wind, cicadias should be showing up any day now). Drop me a line I'd be happy to show you around the canyon. Bull lake creek had a monster brown drake hatch coming off at sunset last month, I have'nt been back for a week to see if it's still on, maybe Saturday. The Washakie wilderness was in top form yesterday.

    Shit, why can't I post any picyures???
