Nick, could we get some of your fly boxes once we know how many kids will show up... please let me have them in advance of the date... See if you can get them with the foam in the whole box... I have about 500 flys that I had bought though the years before I started tying... all kinds from ,off shore to Bonefish, I was thinking that this event would be a good opportunity to let someone else make use of them or just save them for a memory of the Day... I would like to get the Boxes, and fill them with the flys ,equal to the number of kids... they should make a nice gift for them and we could give it to them at the end of the day at the barbeque. What do you think? Juro?

Father's Day is a GO! I will be calling them today. So far, we have 15 pairs - big brother and friend, needing chaperones. I think we have enough but will be taking another final headcount in short order.

I will post after my conversation with the staff today.

AWESOME IDEA! I'll make sure to get in touch with the people in charge and see if we can get some boxes with the full foam again. I'll let you know how it works out.

I got some 3mm foam rubber from the fabric store and made some great looking boxes up. Only $.50 a sheet. I would be happy to make some up if you get me the boxes. Let me know,

I have two boxes that were given to me at the Boneclave that I would like to donate. Please tell me where to send them or drop them off. Also if I can help any other way let me know what's needed and I'll see if I can help.

If you're talking about the ones I left there, I have tons of them! If you want to donate yours, please feel free, and thanks for the offer. They're trash at my company, so no one minds when I take a bunch..

Good Idea with the foam, I can try and get them too you if you want. Some of the boxes that I get do come with wall to wall foam of the pink variety that was in the box that I gave you. We'll have to see what I can get. They seem to be from a less produced machine.

Thanks Shad, Nick ,as long as I get them even on that day I can put them together... I will already have put the flys in Bunches and plan for 15 boys... if there are more we will probably have extra boxes and I certainly will have the boy will be left out if more come.

If all the boxes are the same sizes as the ones you gave me I can cut out 20 sheets and bring them with some super glue and we will be good to go. I don't know that I will make much of a guide or anything so I would like to do something.

If I'm still in the country,I will be there but the impending job change may mean I'm U.K. bound. Will keep you posted!

I got word that I'll be able to get plenty of boxes for the day, with the full foam.
