As of 21-Dec, I have flies from Rick, Billhouk, Bob9, and Gmac.
Hello everyone, the flies for the domestic addresses were mailed yesterday. I apologize, but I was not able to mail the two international addresses.
The neighborhood post office was unable to...
JWB, your flies arrived.
Rick, your flies arrived.
I haven't opened it yet, but that would be my guess. :)
Gmac, I received something from you today.
Keep your false casting to a minimum.
Also, the Belgium cast style works well with multiple fly rigs.
Oops, sorry everyone, I just realized the original proposal was for a size "6" or bigger. I posted the wrong size when started this thread, I've changed the size down to a 6 or bigger.
Here are some of the October swap flies.
All of these flies are "Elk Hair Caddis", but none of them look alike or even similar to each other. I am always amazed at the variety that is produced...
Bill Houk: (The picture doesn't do this one justice, it is a good looking fly.)

Basically, the fly tier submits 3...

Bob, the flies arrived today.
Pillcaster, as mentioned, I'm just a casting instructor and all I can offer is my own opinion. I can't speak for TFO and I don't have access to the repair data for either rod.
Here's my opinion....
I can not comment on the Echo rods, but I am familiar with the TFO rods and I have several 7 wt's and I use them often. Have you cast a 7 wt TFO Clouser yet? I like the TFO Clousers. They are nice...
Hello Everyone, just a quick update on the swap status. We're short one set of flies and I suspect that diaper duty has delayed them. That's a better excuse than I usually have for being late. :)...
December's Swap of the Month will be larger sized flies; Hooks should be size 6 or larger. Any pattern or style that you want to tie.
1. Rick Z << Received
4. Bob9 << ...
I'm still waiting one set of the October flies, so those pictures can't be taken yet.
I just received the September flies yesterday and haven't even had a chance to open them yet, let alone take...
