Admittedly, things have been rather slow around here since July. It was then that I was injured at work and lost the use of my right, dominant, hand. Since that time, Melissa has had to pick up the slack with the flies. She is going as fast as she can and I am watching her like a hawk. Our process takes a while to begin with but now it seems like it is taking forever. I know the season is going to end soon and I know people want their orders. Please be patient with us. For us, this has always been a part time job. We both have full time jobs and two children (one of whom is special needs). We put a lot of time and effort into these poppers. I refuse to sell something that I wouldn't use myself. We have received many comments from those that have ordered from us before stating how these poppers are better in person, they are little works of art, durable, and extremely well crafted. We love making these flies but we love it even more when our customers share their catches with us. This might really be a labor of love. Rest assured we are still filling orders but please understand they may take a while. We are going as fast as Melissa can! HA!
So with all that being said, we sent 5 dozen size 8 poppers to Hunting Creek Outfitters yesterday. The 5 dozen included Purple Night Stalkers, Fire Tigers, Grey Ghosts, Fish Foolin' Frogs and Retro Lime-As. If you are in the DC Metro area check Murray's shop out and pick up some poppers while you are there. The popper season is really heating up now (from what I have read) so get out there and sling some bugs.
