Hi All,

First off let me say that as usual I'm blown away by the skill of the tiers that we have here at UJ. All the flies are amazing and we've also been able to assemble 3 nice boxes that will be auctioned off to support UJ.

For those of you that participated your flies will be on their way to you tomorrow morning and the auction boxes will be on their way to Brad as well.

Without further ado, the flies along with the member who tied them:

Jim,

You do a great job organizing and executing the Fly Swap each year - this is the third or fourth that I am aware of.  I trust you take as much from it as you put into it - pride and self satisfaction.  I believe the flies are taking on more character or perhaps reflecting that of the tiers and hopefully they take away a smile or two as well.  Many thanks to you and congrats to all.

Now, to everyone else, lets get those fly auction bids into Brad and help UJ remain healthy.

Mike

Yep - nice job putting this together. And the photos are a nice extra touch that takes some time to pull off too.

Thanks for doing all this.

Oh - and a nice looking set of flies too!

Me again!

To close things out for this year:

Everyone's package is in the mail to them.  You might noticed I've updated my original post to include Jeff Kimball's flies that thanks to US customs just arrived yesterday, well worth the wait I might add as they are really nice!  I also updated the images of the auction boxes as I added Jeff's flies to them.  Some of you may notice your envelopes had a little surgery and tape and will find a white envelope inside containing a Green Machine, I had sealed a bunch of them already so I snuck the new flies in that way.

The auction boxes are winging their way to Maine as well.

Thanks again for all your participation and I'm looking forward to next year!
