Default The Streamers Box 2017

For anybody with a need/desire for some streamers, I'll again be tying up the "Streamers" boxes-- ala 2017 style. A few more patterns will be added, and I'm working on a few more "classics," and some additional bead-head configurations. Where the 2017 version of the "Streamers" differs most is in the price-- $75 delivered, but also in the total number of streamers-- 75+ flies, with my usual "bonus bugs."

And, yes, I will still be tying up the "Miracle 100+" and the "Miracle XL+" boxes for the guys who need a fair supply of dries and nymphs...

Jerry, aka hairwing530

PS I'm more than happy to accommodate "special requests..." JW

Joseph,

Payment has arrived, and you'll be getting one of the first completed boxes, along with Doug and B.E.F. After it arrives, let me know what you think...

Many thanks, my friend...

Looks like you got your Streamer Mojo back Jerry. Getting excited about these! I haven't had a chance to sling any of those beautiful drys yet. I came up lame with a back strain.....but I hope to get out there soon.

Doug,

Those dries in your possession have a "shelf life," so to speak. Take good care of that back problem first and foremost. The trout will wait for your return.

Besides, you'll have to be on your best "slingin" game when your streamer boxes arrive...

Rest up and heal well, my friend...

Doug, Joseph and B.E.F.,

I'm hoping for two things over the next few days-- to receive solid news from my chief oncologist on Friday, and to finish the first few streamer boxes for shipment early next week. After yesterday's "endurance trials" at the hospital, I'm moving a bit slower than usual this morning. But, at the very least, I'm up and around, and ready to hit the tying bench again...

I'll advise you all on both of the above by Friday evening...

Tight lines always, my friends...

Jerry,
I'm sure everyone understands you need to slow down from time to time. I'm sure much more than you do. No rush on getting mine together. If all goes ok I will send you my payment this weekend but I'm mostly just interested in getting them by the 4th of July. If that isn't doable, then Labor Day is good. Stay healthy first of all.

Mike

Jerry,

No worries on the speed of completion on the boxes. With my lame back I have had the chance to get some tying time in myself. No need to feel rushed. The weather still hasn't been nice enough to really even get out there and wade yet this year. I am really getting tired of all the rain. And yesterdays tornado only missed me by 40 minutes. Hasn't been a very good start to the season.

Well unlike the guys above, I am in a rush.....Without exception I MUST have all of the fly sets I ordered delivered by May 31, 2016. Otherwise, I'll have to just wait till 2017.....So no exceptions, kind of.

B.E.F.

Heck, I am just getting back into tying. And fly fishing in general. ( Family issues and also suffered the loss of my very good friend who loved to sling flys with me. Kinda took the wind out of the sails last year for me.) I have found it is not like riding a bike. To do a streamer box of 40 quality flies like Jerry's would more than likely take me until May 31 of 2016....so I can easily wait.

I still love to try to tie. And it's a good thing the fish don't mind my ugly streamers. So I figure if they will hit my stuff, well with Jerry's new Streamer Box....I can't go wrong!
