Up for a Challenge?


Last year, I built a box full of flies for my local Trout Unlimited Chapter's annual auction.  This year I was approached to donate flies and again I agreed.  I am only going to do a couple dozen beadheads, but I wanted to ask the readers of this blog to pitch in to help me be able to make another fly box for the auction.  What I am asking is for a few willing souls to send me some of their favorite patterns to include in the box.  I am needing these by 04/18/11.  If you are interested, please send me an e-mail at juan@anglerscovey.com.  I will include the tier's name and pattern name with the box. I'd like to make this something that will outsell last year's box.  I think it sold for $60.00 and had about  5 1/2 dozen flies in it.  

I'll send out a prize to the top 3 contributors.  I appreciate your help.

  3. Hey Juan-Are you looking for a particular type or style of fly? I can send you some parachutes. Do you have a preference to size? Thanks for all you do.

  4. Jerry,

    Nothing in particular but something you can use around here. As far as size, anything that works out here will be great. Say 16-22??? Thanks Jerry!
