Have you ever worked with leopard wood btw?
Let me try to wrap my wee lil brain around that for awhile Itch. It looks interesting but with some engineering obstacles.


*Leopard wood*... This is a "tomato/to-mah-to" term. Some call it Leopard wood because it sounds cooler than its true name, "Lacewood". I have two 3x5" boxes available made from the highest grade Lacewood you will ever see. I also have a supplier with an abundance of lacewood, which is why my price is lower than my boxes made from more exotic woods.

LOL! Just texted the kids the website and hinted about Father' Day. Is that being too demanding?
Yep! I need to beef up my inventory for Fathers Day I'm heading to Hawaii tomorrow. Last year I came home with some insane Koa and Monkey Pod. Boy did that make some lovely fly boxes! This time Im going to a different island. We'll see what I can dig up!

Guys, jay (flygrain) sent me a box as a thank you for my service, now I'm usually highly uncomfortable receiving gifts or anything for my service to the country since I chose to do it, but jay convinced me to accept one "on the house." I just received it today and it is truly a fine piece of equipment and you can see jays attention to detail on it. Click the image to open in full size.

So if any of you are on the fence about purchasing one, perhaps the the size of jays heart will sway you into purchasing one.

Jay, Old Friend...

Two things, really, on this chilly Thursday afternoon in northern Michigan...

The first is that you should know that Emily's box is being filled with Catskills flies from almost every fly shop that she, her family and "Doc" and his wife have visited as the group winds down Week #1 out East...

Second... "My kids" and my girls would like to get me one of your fixed-blade(Damascus) trout and bird "special" knives with a highly-figured piece of black walnut or a truly impressive piece of wood as both a "Thank You" and as a birthday gift at the end of May. May 30 will mark the 17th anniversary of my cancer diagnosis, and 17 years of surviving it!

Give it some thought on your trip home and let me know the price, so I can pass it along. Whatever "my kids," their families and my girls can't come up with, I'll make up the rest...

Enjoy Hawaii, my friend, and please, please drag that rod out of its tube and set a hook for yours truly!

Travel safe, my friend...

I may have to leave this thread up on the screen and let the wife accidentally see it.

Jerry. It is such a joy to hear Emily is enjoying the flybox. It really makes my heart soar
I'll get in touch with you later this week about a knife, when I get back to the mainland. Sounds like a real nice project

Just an additional update on some new wood I have in my possession. I bought a small amount of nice Koa early in the trip. It is dry and ready to mill. I did some searching and found a place that is a Koa treasure trove! Massive chunks of the highest figured Koa u can imagine. This stuff is beyond any of my wildest dreams. $75 a board foot! Youch!!! And its not even dry! Well, since I'm a sucker, I bought some. It will take a while to dry it, but when its ready... Oh my!!!! They will stand way above any boxes I've ever made I also got one small piece of Monkey Pod. I should be able to make something cool with it.
