HUGE THANKS
« on: September 04, 03:45PM »
Well boys I am in the process of cleaning the basement when the kids brought the mail in.......   Kaitlin says looks like your flies are here and  the first thing I  thought of was  someone mailed their swap flies to the wrong place.....   Nope  right place  after all what a  great collection of flies from all of you  .....  Now I am not one to be caught off guard  but I  could not believe it.   This  boys  is  what the whole site is about to me and I can not thank you guys enough for taking the time  to do this...    The camp beam  will be  filling up  the next trip down and I will  post pics for all to see.  This says a lot about our small group and I hope we  share many more  anniversaries with the site......  I hope  to wet a  line  or  maybe tie some  flies with all of you  in the coming months

HUGE  thanks  and  by the letters included an extra thanks to caddis.......

Good to hear you were surprised. You started a great site Gary and I am sure it will be around for a lot more anniversaries. I for one know of the support that you give to many organizations and individuals. This was just a little way that we could do something for you. Glad you enjoyed it. And yes Thanks to Caddis for putting this together.

There's no one more deserving, congrats again on the one year.

I was beginning to think Andrea kept them and was fishing them ;)

  Great to hear you got them Gary, hardly wait to see the pics!

The charm of fly fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.

Gary, I sent my flies without any tags, didn't realize you were including them on the beam until I saw that picture.  My flies certainly weren't fancy, just fishers, but I'll send some tags along if you would like.

Charles  they are fantastic.....   Hmmmmmm  I  can always  just add a  tag with them instead of you going through the trouble.   I can not wait to get down and  get these up and  get some pics for you  guys....
