You got it, tx_newb. Work begins just as soon as the coffee is finished brewing and ready for the cup. Many thanks, my friend...

As promised, six "Miracle 100+" fly boxes left yesterday, with delivery dates of Wednesday of this week. I hope to have a few more off and running before the weekend...

Many thanks for your support, my friends. Come late October or early November, the incoming class of "my kids" will take their place at the tying table, each with their own vise, tools, materials, etc. and all free of charge... as always! And, they'll have many of you to thank for that...

May you all be blessed with tight lines and the determined pull of a good fish...

Three more boxes hit the ground running today with USPS, and should arrive at their new homes in time for some weekend "exercise..."

More of them to follow by Friday/Saturday, or Monday of next week...

Tight lines, my friends... always...

Tight lines, now and always...

Jerry - they really are spectacular, and the Streamers 2014 look just as amazing. I can't wait to get these in the high sierra waters, first fly should hit the water in 11 days! I'll keep you posted on all the action they get!

Your craftsmanship and generoisty is outstanding and I wish you and "your kids" all the best!!

lb2015,

In among the flies shown are a few of the ties from the vises of three girls who've left this Earth-- my late daughters, Lauren and Laramie, and one of "my kids" who became like a daughter to me and mine, Ms Emily. Rather than saving them, honor the trio by fishing their handiwork. In doing so, you may them the highest form of compliment imaginable...

Nice photo, by the way...

Tight lines and safe travel in the High Country...

I'll do the small box of ties; they will be handed over to "Casting for Recovery." Contact me via PM for your full name/address.

And, last but certainly not least, two more "Miracle 100+" fly boxes departed with this morning's mail as well. Many thanks to you all, my friends. I owe you a debt that I can never hope to repay...

May you long be blessed with the weighted pull of a good fish... always...

Heading out in tomorrow's mail are the following...

The last of the "salts..."

Another "Salmonia" special...

A "Memorial Box" or two...

A pair of "Miracle 100+"...

Guys, let me know when they arrive, if you would, and your thoughts on the selections...

Hope your holiday weekends are going well. Tight lines to one and all, my friends...

And, to those who've been kind enough to ask, the answer is "Yes..." I am still tying up the "Miracle 100+" boxes, and putting together the "Memorial" boxes...
