Default "The 2016-2017 Miracle 100+ "

FOR THOSE CONSIDERING A "MIRACLE 100+" FLY BOX, PLEASE KNOW THAT THIS OPTION REMAINS ON THE TABLE FOR 2017, ALONG WITH THE "MIRACLE XL+" AND STREAMERS 2017" BOXES... The price on the "Miracle 100+" fly boxes will remain at $85, shipped to your door, and the boxes will continue to come packed with totals north of 110 to 115+ flies, with a usual mix of 65 to 35 percent, dries to nymphs and a side order of "bonus" flies. If you need to "adjust" the percentages or customize the mix, that's fine by me. Just let me know, as I do my level best to tailor each box to the angler's needs, and make each one into a grouping that will effectively cover almost any fly-fishing situation encountered during the fishing season...

Guys, I've long busted hump to "over-deliver" on my fly boxes, and this dedication to "exceeding expectations" always will be my approach. The Good Lord willing, I'm hopeful that I can manage to stay out of "deficit spending" with the price listed above, and still be able to keep doing the free annual tying classes with "my kids"-- kids battling/surviving cancer, just like me. And, by donating my own handiwork, I still can keep delivering to the extreme with affordable-- and impressive --batches of "bugs."

Give the boxes the once-over and let me know your thoughts. Paypal is easiest on me-- the closest bank is a 30-mile haul --and the info is: jwarrington1@copper.net

Thanks for taking a look, my friends, and may you long be blessed with safe wades whenever you're astream, tight lines always, and a wealth of good friends with whom to share the hours on a river...

Jerry, aka hairwing530

Below is a typical "Miracle 100+" fly box. As with all of my boxes, please feel free to "customize" it to your needs...

Thanks for the compliment, Mike. Greatly appreciated! Don't be surprised if your next "care package" carries a little reading material as well...

Tight lines always, my friend...

Thanks as well, coastrider. I appreciate the compliments.

A few have asked the question, and rightly so... "Why the upgrade/increase?" Simply, it will allow me to do a few things-- use up some of the "orphan" flies that have filled a small jar (orphans as their new owners-to-be suddenly fell off the face of the Earth when it came time to settle up), raise a few more $$$ for "my kids," and present some fly boxes with a real "WOW" factor to them...

And one "vent," if everyone here doesn't mind? This part of my post goes out to the gutless wonder with the trash mouth who hid his identity behind his wife/girlfriend's e-mail account address... I don't mind the fact that you're PO'd about the increased price on the "Miracle 100+" fly box. I don't expect everybody to agree with me all of the time, despite how fair I may perceive the deal to be. But, the next time, at least do me the courtesy of leaving in park your obvious grasp of the vulgarity, in describing me or my attempts to do something good with my life.

And, most of all... DON'T EVER take another name-calling shot at my family, the girls we've lost, or "my kids" in general. NEVER! Coming at me or disagreeing with me is one thing. Verbally attacking those closest to me is well beyond OFF LIMITS!!! I didn't sign up for that kind of ****...

To the rest of you... tight lines now and always, my friends...

If someone has a problem with you raising the cost of your flies to 50 cents a fly, they have more problems than any of us can imagine my friend. You could easily charge 100$ and not many would blink I believe.

Some people are just angry at the world.

Hey Ryan,

You know how I go about my "business," if you will. I always try to include a little something "extra" in every fly box or package that leaves the confines of this house. Why? Because it's who I am, and it's how I would want to be treated. The good folks on this forum-- and a few elsewhere --entrust me with their hard-earned money, and ensuring that their fly-fishing journeys are all good, all of the time. The very least that I can do is give everyone a surprise or two along the way...

And, I know... In the past, I've been gently chastised by some for not setting a higher price on the flies, especially after they've received their boxes. But, my tying is a labor of love, one that literally saved my life early on in my cancer battles, and one that was lost when I became blind from 2004-late 2009. When my eyesight was restored, the passion for wrapping hooks came back with a vengeance, and I haven't slowed down since then.

Besides, I've met some of the finest fellow anglers on the face of the Earth via this forum, and I wouldn't trade that for anything, including "doubling down" on my fly prices. And, I don't intend to let the occasional dip-wad change my outlook on everything "fly." He's so lost in his anger that the best GPS in the world couldn't guide him back to the path...

Thanks for the "pep talk," Ryan...

I personally think you SHOULD raise your prices.

Don't let one Massengill product ruin your day. This isn't really about getting the best price on flies on the internet. This isn't about using your hard work and generosity for personal gain. This is about helping those in need.

Jerry's flies are the best. Wonderful flies from an even better person. Any person taking a shot at him must be a very miserable lowlife human being.

Cheers to you Jerry!

Wow!! I'm so having a hard time wrapping my head around this one!?!

You provide fantastic flies, beautifully displayed in a very nice fly box, without charging for shipping all to help fund tying supplies for your "My Kids" effort to brighten the lives of some pretty sick kids and some Jack Weed not only has the nerve to question what you are charging but verbally assaults you in the process? Unbelievable!!

All I can say is I pray that Mr. Jack Weed has an awakening of sorts that enlightens him to what is truly important in life on this world.

Jerry, Thank you for all you do for "My Kids" and know it's appreciated beyond measure.
