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.
One fly to rule them all
by Jeff D
I'm too much of a gear geek to limit myself to just one fly, but for warm water fish I'm pretty sure you could limit yourself to various sizes and colors of killer buggers and never need anything else!
I've been fishing with #8 and #18 black killer buggers almost exclusively lately, because they're so easy to tie and losing flies is guaranteed if you're fishing enough. The #8s for bigger fish and the #18s for micros. Once I get a magnifier I'm going to tie some #26 for the really tiny fish. I can crank them out and have managed to get my hands on enough Shetland spindrift yarn in various colors to probably last a lifetime.
I'm going to start cranking out killer bugs and buggers! I love simple flies because I'm not a master fly tier and value quantity over fancy time consuming flies.

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.
