Here is a copy of the email I received today from the Alabama Retreat coordinator:
I want to personally thank you and the members of the Fly Tying Forum for the lovely flies and fly boxes we gave to the women at our recent retreat in Alabama. The women loved them and were really touched that your members would take the time to hand-tie all the flies just for them.
I'm attaching some photos of the women with their flies and boxes. We gave them to them right before we fished. The photos don't do justice to how thankful the women were for your gift.
Also, one of the women received the box from Tony Hale and wanted to send him a thank you note. Are you able to share his mailing address or email address with me? If so, I will forward it to the woman who received his box.
Thank you again for making this inaugural retreat in Alabama very special. Your support means a lot!
