And, another pile has broken from the "starting gate" here in Grayling, entrusted to the Priority Mail service of USPS with delivery scheduled for mid-week, mostly. Get 'em wet and fish 'em hard, guys.

And, you all have my gratitude for thinking of "my kids" and me. Safe wades to you all, my friends...

One more "load" of "Miracle XL+" boxes departs with tomorrow's mail. Fish 'em like you mean it, guys. I can always tie up a few more...

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

I am brand new around here, what a resource! I was planning a Spring Break road trip out West here and reached out to Hairwing to see if he could help me out with a custom box. His assortment was perfect and the quality was truly amazing.

I took his flies and fished the Green, the Uncompahgre, the Animas and the San Juan. His flies killed it on each river. They are really well tied and seem to last all day!

Quick picture of four species from the trip, thanks Hairwing!

You're quite welcome, chuggins2727. Just let me know when you're ready for a "refill," my friend...

As for me? It's back to the vise. There are "bugs" in need of making. Have a great Wednesday, guys...

Come tomorrow morning, I'll be making the trip into Grayling and dropping off a load of boxes to the post office. And, when I say "a load," I mean a load! Outside of the first-light and twilight hours spent on the river, the bulk of my weekend was spent at the vise. The river traffic was a bit too heavy each day for my liking...

Let me know when you get 'em, guys, and many thanks again for thinking of "my kids" and me...

More departures are scheduled for tomorrow-- Saturday --morning, with additional boxes taking flight by early next week. Have a safe and fish-filled weekend, guys, and tighten a line for me when you can...

Another group of boxes win their release later this morning, all traveling courtesy of USPS and its Priority Mail system. If you wouldn't mind, guys, please let me know when they arrive.

And, with the coffee pot reloaded, it's back to the vise for me. Have a great-- and safe --weekend, everybody. And, tighten a line for me when you can...

With the dawning of tomorrow morning, plans are coming together for the launching of yet another absolute load of boxes. Sleep hasn't come easy this past week, so I made good use of the time and spent the "sleepless hours" at the vise building "bugs." Enjoy the boxes, guys, and have a solid Sunday...

With some final wraps made an hour or so ago, I've finally completed all of the boxes that will be included in today's mail drop. And, at last count, it's become obvious that I'll need the old canvas log carrier to tote the load into the Grayling post office. At my age, I don't juggle boxes as well as I used to. So it goes...

At any rate, keep an eye on your mailboxes, guys. And, thanks again for thinking of "my kids" and me...
