Flies received yesterday from Wayne.

All flies are now received and are going in the post at lunchtime today. If you were in the buzzer swap then there is Westcountryboy's buzzer in with your flies too.

Everyone also has some hooks from Jim Doyle enclosed Smile

Thanks to everyone involved for taking part and meeting the deadlines

Chris

Received my flies this morning absolutely delighted.

Thanks to everyone for taking part and thanks to Chris for organising and distributing. The extra hooks will be of benefit.

Qurestion

This time I couldn't tell whose was whose it didn't really matter.

But if I received a fly that I wanted to query a material or a technique I wouldn't know who to contact.

What is the best way of tagging a fly with a name securely?
