    Come Tuesday morning, a rather large "load" of boxes will be deposited at the window of the Grayling post office. Watch your mailboxes in the coming week, guys, as I plan on putting the final wraps into their respective fly boxes over the next few days.

    And, whenever time allows, please let me know when they arrive.

    As always, thanks for thinking of "my kids" and me, my friends...

    I signed up to this forum just to post these pictures of Jerry's flies.

    I just started out at this fly-fishing gig to catch fish and instead I caught some really truly impressive people.

    Thank you for having a commitment to those kids Jerry.

    Thank you Jerry for helping this neophyte along with his habits and vices. A Canadian to boot - yes you're extra kind. I'll especially appreciate the 'Canadian specials' you were so kind to tie. These are more than flies but a bit of a legacy.

    I'm about to try those 'specials' on the 'Haliburton Gold' trout around my little woods in Ontario when I'm not taking care of my munchkin.

    Cheers

    snuck,

    Many thanks for your kind words, my friend. It was a pleasure for yours truly to be your sounding board, if you will. And, you always have an "open invitation" to drop by anytime. So, don't be a stranger.

    Give the aforementioned "munchkin" a hug from the ol' hairwing530, and take good care, snuck...

    PS By the way, great job on the photos, my friend... JW

    I have been checking my mailbox all week, eagerly awaiting my shipment of flies from Jerry. Today was the day!

    I was so excited that I knew I had to go fishing. So this evening I took my new flies to my favorite spot on the Truckee River here in Reno NV.

    I caught 5 fish today, all between 9-13 inchers, and all on the flies that Jerry provided me. Jerry, the humpies KILLED it today!

    So I just wanted to publicly say thank you to Jerry. I'm extremely happy with my personalized Miracle XL+

    Tight lines, everyone.

    Hey teebiss,

    First off, many thanks for letting me know that your box of bugs arrived safely. And, this must be the "week of the humpies," as you're the third fly-wrangler to tell me that the humpies were the ticket to their day astream. At first, I thought it might be a geographical thing. However, after checking the shipping logs of the "Speaker of the House," I found the "humpies reports" came in from the Northeast, Southeast and Southwest areas of the country. On any given day, I guess...

    At any rate, I'm glad you like your fly box, teebiss. Fish 'em hard, my friend, and thanks again for thinking of "my kids" and me...

    Got 'em, Mike, and work already is underway on your "bug" collection. Thanks again for thinking of "my kids" and me. I'm finally closing in on finishing the last of the "gearing up" phase for this year's classes with another group of "my kids." Once the final deliveries arrive, me and mine-- and a fair number of my "fishing cronies" --again will be set for the upcoming sessions of teaching a bit of fly-tying to some of the greatest kids that I've ever had the honor to share time with. And, for that, Mike-- and to you all --you have my heartfelt thanks.

    Have a good one, guys. I'm headed back to the vise...

    Two boxes full of beautiful flies arrived at my house today courtesy of Jerry. One box was originally for a friend....but we will see how that works out.

    I will be doing a bit of late fall fishing over the next few weeks and putting these to use in 3 or 4 states(NY, MA, CT, NJ). Will post the results!!

    Jerry is an absolute pleasure to deal with and cannot beat the quality and price of what he does, and its for a good cause.
