2011 T.U. Donation box

Quick Update:
I heard that this box was able to raise around $250.00.  It was in a silent auction and all the cards in the deck were sold.  They could have sold more, but I don't know why they didn't.  So, with all the hard work, it made a difference.  It's a small amount in the overall scheme of things, but it's a big deal for me and for the people who helped out.  Thanks again!  
Well here is the finished product.  I didn't have a box that was big enough to fit everything and I put the bigger flies into another box, but forgot to take pictures of that box.  A special thanks goes to to Avril Anjers, Jerry Shin, Ben Copp, Nate Taylor, Dustin Hasha, Kevin Mahoney, Steve Perry and Conner Murphy for taking the time to tie and send out flies to help me fill up the box. Myself and Ghillies Fly Shop donated the box.  
The box is filled with worms, stoneflies, caddis parachutes, hoppers, emergers and more.  This will definitely get someone through the summer with lots of good patterns.  
This will be auctioned off tonight at the T.U. auction.  Thanks again to everyone who took the time to help out!

  5. Jerry- That is a Scientific Angler box. It's pretty nice and will hold double what is shown!

  7. Juan (and his followers); thank you for all your efforts! The flies you tied and donated were a big hit at the Auction.
