Hope they are her by Saturday. Otherwise I'll have to wait to use them until next spring...
Well, that or I'll be forced to go fishing again sooner than planned

I'll stick the ones I have in the post 1st class tomorrow and then send the rest later. Hope you get a fish on them :D:D

My pack has arrived! Some great looking flies there guys. I'm leaving home for the Dee tomorrow very early so they are packed away and ready for a swim. I'm expecting to catch one fish on each fly..... before lunch on Monday.

It's been fun and there are a few ideas that I've not tried in my own tying in the bunch so thanks for the swap Gary. I'm looking forward to the next one.

OK, I caught it first thing this morning........... about 15 minutes before I woke up. Does it count?

Oh, no it wasn't a kelt, rawner or baggot:D

The late late show

Not my best efforts , but I'm sure they will catch . Not what I originally intended ,these are tied on lightweight stainless tubes.

Billyfish flies arrived today. He asked me to take a picture as he wasn't happy with the one he took.

And here is a quick picture of the group.

A great set flies for any box. If we can't get some springers with this selection we should pack in and take up darts :D:D

Flies will be in the post Monday. Thanks for taking part lads.
