"mystery box revival"

Recommended Posts

Rich,

The box arrived at my door around the 7th of April??? I sent it out on the 9th. I believe that it was not the reverse box. I have not seen the reverse box at all.

Rich, I found one of the mystery boxes while I was doing some cleaning this week: my husband was suppose to mail it about 4 wks ago and I thought it was mailed when I found it on top of our refrig. It is in the mail now and on its way to OR. I took it to the post office Tuesday. Sorry for the delay to all. I did put a couple of big bass flies in the box.

 

thanks

Jamie and I have had a VERY busy summer. We have purchased several new lots and have been working on clearing and improving them. I could have sworn I mailed it when she gave it to me. I explicitly remember meaning to mail it. My sincerest apologies to the other swappers. I'll have to put in something really extra nice for the next round, Rich!

Ok - We have located the two boxes that I shipped out. Aroostookbasser had two Mystery Fly Boxes and the Mystery Material Box show up at his house at just about at the same time, I suspect box 3 was one of the two. Currently AF_Tier and BigDaddyHub have Box 1 and 2. Both boxes should be on the move. I was getting worried there for awhile. I thought I might have to start over :bugeyes:

 

My son left for Fishing Around Camp on Sunday, armed with my 9wt Fly Rod and a selection of flies for Pike Fishing in the local lakes, along with some Big Trout that are stocked in a pond at a local fishery just for the kids.

Last year he brought home a Brown and a Speckled Trout. Can't wait to see what he brings home this year :thumbup: The rules are they have two keep what that they catch at the Fishery.

My son got back from Summer camp Saturday. Brought home a Rainbow and a Big Brown. He caught them at a Fishery near the camp. They have one rule at the fishery, you have to keep what you catch, limit is two fish. He also caught a 3 pound Pike at Swartswood Lake.

I got a mystery box in the mail Saturday. Not sure what number it is, but it's the same box I got when round 4 began, I believe, as it still had a couple of my flies in it (should I be upset no one claimed them??!!....jk).

 

I've selected 10 flies I tied this winter when snowed in and plan to get them tagged and the box back in the mail today. I'll post once they are on their way to California.

 

It's a nice bunch of flies... had trouble deciding which ones to keep!

Good to hear the box is moving. Sounds like box 3, I labeled the other boxes as 1 and 2

Any idea when I should expect this in the mail? I have no idea what order I'm in or what box is coming my way..............

Looking forward to it!

I'll be adding you to the first box I get back. The three boxes are still making their rounds.
