meathelmet,

I'm glad to hear that you liked my "little selection" of goodies to get you started down the fly-tying road. I've been blessed along the way to have some good friends-- some now gone, while others remain --who've made it their life's work to keep me busy. Couple that with my own "pack-rat" tendencies, and you've got the makings for bins that "my kids" and I will be lucky to get through...

And, if anyone else needs hooks for the upcoming hours at the vise, I've set aside some vintage cigar boxes for my friends here on NAFFF. So, if you have a need, just give me a shout...

Jerry, aka hairwing530

As of this morning, November 7, 2013, I'm ramping up the hook totals for my fellow tyers from 400+ to 450+ hooks and the Whiting feathers clumps totals from 2 to 3 clumps with every "cigar box kit..." And, the hooks will range from Mustad to Daiichi and Tiemco...

Enjoy, everybody...

Young and a 'CeGar' store a short walk away in north Seattle. They saved the empty boxes for me. God the smell of the Cedar wood was magic. To young to legally drive so just took my fly rod and walked the mile south to "Green Lake" in north Seattle.

To be honest, I didn't have the 25 cents for the bus fare. Some of the drivers would just pull over and 'Get in, how many did you catch?' Same when going to the first two years at the University of Washington. Tuition and books drained me of every penny I had.

But I paid up. And I got 'my monies worth' 90+ percent of the time. There were a couple of times where I just had to stand up and tell the 'Teacher' 'YOU ARE SO FULL OF SHXT YOUR EYES ARE BROWN!'

I just wanted to send another thanks to Hairwing530 for the cigar box of hooks and his "beginner fly tying" package he sent me.

I decided to hit the river for some smallies but instead hooked into 8 walleyes! The funny thing was the bait chunkers were throwing white grubs with a tail and I was throwing green and black wooly buggers....go figure. Luckily the walleye were hungry because I still lack and fly fishing skills.

Again, thanks!

If you're in need of hooks, a great vintage wooden cigar box and a very nice piece of cutlery, take a look at "The Cigar Box 500+ Reloaded..."

Great photo there and this might be a short memory but I don't recall anyone fly fishing for walleye. Great brace of fish.

I went out again with my new wooly buggers I made from the materials Jerry sent me but I have to admit they looked more like wooly buggers with a bad case of mange!

Once again I caught my limit on the walleyes!

Bad case of mange or not, that's one nice group of walleyes, my friend... Keep it up and I'll be sending you my "buggers" orders...

Glad to see that you're enjoying the stuff. You know where to find me if you start running low.
