YEAH BRIAN! Nice job taking it in the homestretch!

We should all let Brian and Capt'n Ray know how much we appreciate thier generosity. May you encounter a blitz of biblical proportions, and take lots of pictures!

With utmost sincerity, thank you both.

Congrats Brian.... It was a very generous gesture supporting the Fly Fishing Forum. Hopefully we'll pick a day with great conditions and have a banner time. Rhode Island's been like a second home to ya. Bring those Clousers, Angel Hairs, and Flatwings. We'll put 'em thorough the test.

Let us know your desires. We'll do everything possible to fill your fishing fantasies.

Juro, Jim,...Thanks to all for your kindness and interest you share with us, the public, in the fly fishing sector.

Capt. Ray Stachelek.... Cast a Fly Charters

It's you we should be thanking (once again!). We're lucky to have pro friends like yourself in the Forum. Whether winter time shows or summertime trips we've been able to count on you and it's been a great asset to all.

Thanks Brian! YOU DA MAN!!

I'll contact you both after the Father's Day event for the kids we have starting in about an hour.

For Brian Casey's generous contribution, I move that those who feel it's appropriate should send a single fly to each auction winner for FORUM auctions. The intent is to give him a token of our appreciation with something he can use on the trip. Besides sunscreen is just too boring ;)

I will warn you that we have other auctions coming up so a single favorite will be ideal.

PM Brian directly for a mailing address to send him the "thank you" fly!
