: The chopper is leaving the camp site with the sick skipper and his wife inside, and the narrator says:
: "*But all's fly with the tents*, and John and Sandy settle in for their unexpected flight back to Auckland".
: I have a feeling that "all's fly with the tents" has some idiom hidden in it, but which one?
: Thank you very much
Sounds like a youth slang thing to me. I think it means everything is OK with the tents. Urban Dictionary has a couple of likely entries for "fly." including -- cool. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=fly&f=1
