Stand by Gents... we may have a couple of missing sets of flies, the postie may have taken my fly fishing :lol:
Just trying to sort so may be a week or so more to give these flies a chance, if everyone's ok with that??

Cheers
Mike.

PS. I'm not out fishing them if that's what you were all starting to wonder :lol:

Those are my flies that seem to have disappeared on the way to NZ.

Mike and I talked about it last week, so I tied up a second set just to be prepared, they will be sent tomorrow with bells and whistles. Sorry for the delay :)

Cheers
Dennis

You're very welcome :)

The "funny" thing is that, usually I'm pretty up front with my flies when doing. But this time I really struggled to get the flies ready in time and then they get lost. Ah well, sh!t happens and a new set are on their way :)

I recently sent an order over to the Canadian East Coast. Several Dozen flies just disappeared.....I was muttering as I really didn't want to do a repeat dose of an order that involved size 18 and 20 dries and emergers :( I was psyching myself to start the lost one again when an email arrived. The flies appeared 3 weeks after leaving NZ. Phew!

Mike, if 2 sets arrive, feel free to keep them, share them to all the participants, donate them to the local junior or whatever you think is best spent :)

The danish post claims 4-5 days + recipient customs for delivery, it's now been around a month since the first set was shipped, so I'd be surprised if they show up though :)

Dennis your flies have arrived well done... haven't heard from Drew??? Anyone know anything???
I see from his stats he hasn't been online here since the 18th July so not sure he has seen my messages yet???
Other wise I will be looking to post out the flies in a couple of days???
