since I last posted. Sorry about that people. The last two weeks were extremely busy for me. Not only was my full time job filled with long hours and stressful situations but I also had a lot of fly tying to do for orders. I did the math last night and since July 4 I have tied up 176 flies. The majority of them have been poppers. We just completed another order for our local Orvis store. This order was for 8 dozen poppers. We still need to make another 6 dozen. I did some Fruit Cocktails for a fly swap on Fly Tying Forum and then we did orders of various sizes for people. Most, if not all, contained poppers and Panfish Persuaders. I have been getting up before work and hitting the vise for a few hours. After work I have been coming home and doing the same thing. It made for some long days but it was worth it. I actually enjoyed it as well. I wish I had photos but let's all remember that my camera was last seen tumbling end over end on the bottom of the Monocacy River as the current swept it away 3 weeks ago. So far work hasn't given me a new camera. I must say though that I will only be using it, once I get it, to take photos of my flies. It will no longer be accompanying me on my fishing adventures. I learned my lesson from losing this one.
Randy over at Leaping Bluegills received an order of our flies. He did a nice write up about them here if you would like to see it. I am excited for Randy to come back from vacation so we can see how well he did with the flies.
It has been over two weeks since I last had a line wet. I am hoping to chase some smallies either tonight or tomorrow night or even both if the wife will let me. I am caught up on orders so right now we are trying to build up our stock which means that I don't feel bad hitting the water.
So stay tuned for more updates and again I am sorry for the delay in posting until now.
