Within an hour or so, another handful of boxes will be handed off to USPS and their Priority Mail service. So, keep an eye on your mailboxes, guys...

My thanks to you all for thinking of "my kids" and me...

Jerry,
Recieved my box last week and was floored at how awesome it was. You have truly outdone yourself and gone way above and beyond and I can't even begin to say thanks enough. The quality on them is impecabile to boot and their almost to nice to fish! Even showed my 2-1/2 year old and he thought they were real bugs, lol!! But to me thats like having a nice sports car you never drive which is just wrong. HAHA. Hopefully getting my rod setup in the next week or so then hitting the water. Again, truly amazing work and way above and beyond what i was hoping for. Will definitely be a repeat customer and thank you again friend!

Here is the awesomness:

Hey mav,

Those "bugs" will hunt, or should be given a chance to tempt a trout or two. And, once your local trout populations has reduced your fly holdings to nigh onto bare hooks, just give me a shout and I'll get you set up again.

Many thanks for thinking of "my kids" and me, maverick9110e. It was a pleasure to tie up your box of flies.

Wade safe and fish hard, and when you're ready to introduced your son to fly-wrangling, let me know...

Hey John,

As you can no doubt surmise, the rumors of my failure to qualify for "math-lete" status are true. I'm renowned for my inability to count with any precision whatsoever. Hence, the "+" sign that accompanies every one of the descriptions of my fly collections.

And, I'm good with that reputation. After all, my tying long has been for two reasons-- my love of wrapping a hook, and to make sure that "my kids" have everything they need-- tools, materials, et al --when the Fall/Winter classes commence later this year.

It was a pleasure tying up your fly collections, John. Be safe on the water, but don't be a stranger, my friend...

Within a few hours, another load of boxes will be dropped at the post office in Grayling, all shipping via USPS Priority Mail. If time allows, guys, please let me know when they arrive.

Many thanks to you all for thinking of "my kids" and me, my friends...

After two small loads last week, another group will be unleashed upon USPS and its Priority Mail system later this morning. With the stitches out and the bruises healing-- see "The Passing of FT II" in the Lodge Den --my tying speed is nearly back to its normal pace. So, expect a few more boxes to be polished off in the coming days.

As always, guys, many thanks for thinking of "my kids" and me. Have a safe week, enjoy the eclipse, and by all means, get out on the water...

The promised load is away, with another one scheduled for Monday or Tuesday of next week. Let me know when you get them, guys.

And, as always, many thanks for thinking of "my kids" and me. Here's hoping that everyone has a safe weekend on the water...

Hey czucker,

You're quite welcome! And, thank you for thinking of "my kids" and me, especially at this time of year. The "gearing up" phase for the Fall/Winter tying classes with "my kids" never gets any less expensive, and the box sales help to keep me from having to dip too deeply into the family budget around here.

Get 'em wet and fish 'em hard, czucker, and thanks again...

Jerry, aka hairwing530
