Re: Christmas Present for My Parents
Can't use names here ... they read the board I think. But most fly tieing is now behind me (shakie hands - "Parkinson's" sucks) but a 'gift box' like the above is a great thing.
Have two boxes to turn over for Prezzies with all the flies tied for me in the UK. Sounds a bit odd to get them from 6,000 away, but the Fellows will purchase 'something' here in the US and I'll trans-ship.
Last box receipt was Friday. For an off set of postage the Fellow will tie me up a bunch of trout/Atlantic flies and ... personal opinion here .... I come out on the Winner of the Deal. People beat on the Postal Service (here and there) but over the years there has NEVER
been a delivery miss.
UK can be a bit different as Postal will not leave it on your front porch, have no idea what their mail boxes look like. mine has a 'lock box' (Dozens of mail slots for the neighborhood). 'Box' will go into a separate 'lock box' and Posties put the key in your slot.
UK and you're not home, they will knock on neighbor's door and deliver the 'package.' Neighbor will hand same over when you get home from work.
