There is three times as much water on Earth as there is land. Any fool can see, God intended man to fish three times as much as he works.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

You got it.  These are the fly patterns and sizes suggested by CFR.

Give a man a fish and you'll feed him for the day; Teach a man to tie flies and he'll pick up all the roadkill.

My computer has been in the shop since last Saturday.  I am posting from my daughter's home.  Looking forward to seeing your flies.  Kate, from J.Stockard has notified me that they are again (4th time) donating fly boxes.  Support them if you can.

Yes, you can send items or money to the national office for use where ever, or you can find the local or state director from the CFR main page:http://castingforrec...wordpress/home/.  I send these to the main office, but I also just sent a box with two dozen flies to my regional director.
