Got a nice set of flies from Mogup today.  Some good looking buggers in the mix.  I got word from Wendy at CfR that our flies will be going to Alabama for their first retreat.  Thanks again for all your support.

At The Habit over a Santa Barbara Charburger I picked up jburge's set of flies.  So great having another member right down the street.  Waiting on two sets, will start boxing this weekend.

Stabgnid's flies arrived today.  That is the last set.  I will print the tags that have your name and "tied for CfR by" on them and get them on the fly boxes.  Thank you all so very much for taking part in this project.  I plan on doing this again next year and hope many of you will volunteer again.

Here are the fly boxes, they are on the way to Alabama for the first retreat there.  Your Wooly Buggers are on the other side of the boxes. 

 

Once again THANK YOU for all your support over the past 9 years.

 

Tight Lines to all,

The fly boxes were used this past weekend by the first Alabama retreat.  Here is a copy of the letter from CfR that you may use for tax purposes.  Please note the personal note from the Executive Director.
