    I ordered up a box at the beginning of the week. What a pleasure working with Jerry. He was so accommodating and told me he would put together just the flies I would need for central and southeastern Minnesota. Although a lifelong fisherman I have not fly fished for 40 years. Looking to pick this skill up as I think about retirement. Sounds like Jerry will be giving me a great start.

    FlySnag,

    Not to worry, my friend. I've got your back.

    Enjoy the weekend, FlySnag, and the rest of the crew here on the forum. I'm headed back to the tying desk.

    Well, after this week past, I'm pretty sure that I've been removed from my mail carrier's Christmas card list. I'm guessing that it has something to do with the daily loads that departed the cabin in the run-up to Labor Day.

    Guys, thanks again for the fly orders you've allowed me to tie up on your behalf, and for your support and generosity over the years. It continues to mean the world to "my kids" and me.

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend, my friends...

    Five more are off and away as of this morning, and I've positioned myself to polish off another handful before week's end. And, if I read correctly the threats from the Speaker of the House, any further accummulations of sheered deer hair will be cause for the acquisition of a new vacuum cleaner, one of "industrial" strength. So it goes...

    Enjoy the bugs, my friends, and thanks again for thinking of "my kids" and me...

    More arrivals are scheduled for today, with a few more nearing their departure early this next week. If my tying schedule holds firm, I should have most of "my guys" on the water for the Fall fishing.

    Have a great weekend, everybody, and enjoy the bugs...

    I received my Miracle Box yesterday. What a great deal. I explained to Jerry the region I would be fishing in and he put together a custom box just for me. It came with a list a flies in each row of the box. He also included a couple little boxes of "extras" above and beyond what came in the box. This is such a great deal and from a wonderful person. I am happy to support "his Kids". Thank you Jerry. I will pass on your info and the great work that you do.

    FlySnag,

    You're quite welcome, my friend. Thank you for your kindness and generosity in thinking of "my kids" and me.

    Enjoy the Fall days on the water, my friend, as the snow will be both here and there-- northern Michigan and Minnesota --soon enough. Take good care, FS... always...

    A rather tall stack of USPS Priority Mail packages took leave of the cabin this morning, and are now enroute to faraway river destinations. More will follow later this week, with most arriving for the first official weekend of Fall fishing.

    Enjoy the bugs, my friends, and thanks as always for thinking of "my kids" and me.

    May your casts forever be wind-knot free...

    Jerry,

    You are a true hero man! What you are doing with the proceeds from this is amazing!!! I received my first box and WOW!! Great presentation to say the least. Flies look amazing! I sent another batch of PP for more. Thanks so much for both the quality flies and what you are doing with “your kids”!!!

    GMPHK,

    Thank you for the kind words about my "bugs," and about me personally. I've never thought of myself as a "hero," as I've long reserved that description for first-responders, our members of the military, doctors, nurses and the like. They're the true heroes...

    Me? I'm just a guy who's been blessed with family, friends and a fair bit of faith, and one who is trying to make a small difference in the lives of "my kids." I know far too well what they endure each day, and if the Saturday tying classes can relieve the burdens if only for a few hours, then I've done what I set out to do.

    Still, I thank you for the compliment, as I do consider it "high praise," indeed. Enjoy the flies, my friend, and thanks again for letting me know that I'm on the right track...

    Have a great weekend...

    Jerry, aka hairwing530
