    Let's put up another vote on it if we can. The Florida guys who are impacted will have more important things to worry about once getting home and may not have time to tie. I'm good either way. I would love for everyone to be able to still participate but I remember how much work was needed after the flooding here last year. I'm also good with my fly being sent to those who can't participate regardless of whether or not they can get theirs tied.

    And obviously all this goes for those affected by Harvey in Texas too.

    I agree. I'm fine with either way -- I would love to get everyone's flies in, but 100% understand if it's just not in the cards.

    Anyone affected, please let me know what you think. If an extended deadline will still let y'all participate, then we will do that. If you need to back out completely, I'm sure everyone understands.

    Push it back 2 weeks. There's more important things than flies.

    Push it back a week for now. We'll know more about power outages and service restoration in the next 24-36 hours...at least here in Tampa.

    Mine are tied...just need to do a good job on the eyes and pop them in the mail once it starts running again.

    I too am good with pushing it back as needed. Even if we keep the same deadline the postal service may not even be delivering to certain folks in Florida by then anyways.

    I'll get one this afternoon! Everything I've received so far looks awesome. Sorry I haven't given a confirmation to anyone that I've actually received them. I'll snap a few pictures and post up a list of whose have arrived.

    Snapped some quick photos last night -- sorry if I didn't do your flies justice; these things look really good in person!

    I also think it would be really cool if you guys wanted to give either a materials list, a short how-to, or a full blown SBS for your flies! Obviously not a requirement of the swap.

    Anyway, here's what I've received so far:

    @MatthewAbbott -- plus he tied a few sweet EP baitfish; thanks man! What hook is that? I like the shape, and it's super sharp.

    @WillW -- these things are awesome, but I only got 10 of them?

    Yeah man, these are some great ties! Sorry, I think the pictures of yours and Matt's are the most out of focus. I'm really excited to get these in everyone else's hands!

    Man those look great. I'd love to see a materials list or SBS on all of these as well. Sorry for not getting mine in sooner guys. I'll for sure get my last two spun up tonight and will take some pics for an SBS. I'll send some extra goodies your way as well @bryson

    Also just realized that we never made a post (and I never changed the first post) to push the deadline back a week. Try to get them to me by next Friday, Sept. 22. If anyone thinks they will need more time than that, please let me know. As was mentioned before -- lots of people have far more pressing things than flies to deal with right now.
