Default Calling out for a big thanks to peregrines.

A few days ago we had a thank you thread for a member who greatly deserved it.

I just wanted to bring attention to another member who also deserves some recognition.

peregrines.

He's a moderator which is a big chore in itself, but he also runs the Fly Swaps which must take tons of work and patience waiting for late flies to come in, notifying people when they do, then separating everything out and shipping it back. He does a great job at this.

Also he has added lots of very informative posts here including a very large recent post about Hackle Feathers to help out those of us new to tying flies and unsure about the differences.

And on a personal note; I was having trouble understanding the differences in Hackle Feather and he went way above and beyond to help me out. I won't go in to details (I don't want to make him a target) but just understand that he didn't have to do it, it was not expected that anyone would do this, but he offered and did it just to be helpful.

Thanks Mark for all you add here, and for helping me out.

I'll second the big thanks to Mark for all he does; but would like to expand it to all our Moderators, they all do an excellent job...

I really appreciate all that peregrines does for us. I applaud him as well as all of the moderators. They should be proud that they made this a neat place to visit.
Good for you for starting this thread mudbug.

Mark

Kudos for your willingness to share the knowledge acquired by years of trials and errors. It takes a special person to do that.

Mark, Thanks for all your great work on NAFFF! The fly swaps have been a big success since you took over as coordinator and swap meister. Your FAQs are loaded with information for people at all levels of fly fishing/tying and your replies are always helful.

Yes Mark that thread on Hackle is truly excellent. I learned a lot so far and haven't even finished reading it.

I certainly agree, Mark has been a great help, and he is a true plus to the web site. Thank you Mark, we do appreciate you, and the other mods, even though we don't say it enough.
