have gotten emails from several customers concerned that their packages
have been lost because they are late and/or tracking data shows them to
have been in the Jersey City sorting facility for days.
Those packages are now moving. Most have been delivered already.
understand that shopping online this year has been unprecedented, and the
USPS, UPS and FedEx are trying to run beyond their capacity. In the 10
years I have been shipping packages, (thousands and thousands of
packages), the USPS has NEVER lost a Priority Mail package, and has lost
only two or three First Class packages. Please be patient. Your
packages will arrive.

Chris - Thanks for sharing a quick report on your Maine trip. However, that chewed Keeper Kebari looks sick! I felt the need to show one that is ready for action! I tie Keeper Kebari on lighter hooks too, but would like to share a couple of pictures of what I am calling the Karp Kebari. I had two hooks break last year using standard size 6 3x hooks on carp using the standard Keeper Kebari. I switched to these carp hooks last summer and haven't broken a hook yet. I find this fly works well on smallies too! The Arma hooks are hard to get. So a good size 6-8x steelhead hook works well too. I am using TMC 200 hooks right now. Tie up a few and enjoy the battle!

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
