Mark mentioned in another thread:
I lost every box of new england flies I own...
One stoddards box, a couple of good size tan boxes, one green and a couple clear ones crammed with all manner of flies. I'll never have enough time to tie up replacements over the winter, and many were special flies given to me by special people.
Anybody up for helping Mark replace those lost flies? Not actually a swap, just tie up a couple of your best flies and send 'em to Mark.
Least we can do for the guy, I'd be bummed if I didn't have RT to get me through the day while crammed into my window-less office. (Be even more depressed if I lost every fly I own...)
Let's keep it kind of informal.
If you want to help Mark replace those flies he lost, tie a couple of your best and sent them to me by Nov. 26:

Sterling, Ma 01564
I'll keep a record of flies I receive and forward everything on to Mark at the end of November. I'll be sure to let him know who tied each pattern.
C'mon, it only takes a little bit of time to tie two flies! And think of the karma you'll be building; if you lend a hand you'll never lose another fly or break another leader (honest!).
