“A real Christian is an odd number anyway. He feels supreme love for One whom he has never seen, talks familiarly every day to Someone he cannot see, expects to go to heaven on the virtue of Another, empties himself in order to be full, admits he is wrong so he can be declared right, goes down in order to get up, is strongest when he is weakest, richest when he is poorest and happiest when he feels worst. He dies so he can live, forsakes in order to have, gives away so he can keep, sees the invisible, hears the inaudible and knows that which passeth knowledge.”

Yesterday I had 2 roosters given to me. I plucked the good feathers then butchered them. The birds were thje Red Ranger meat birds that had some ginger grizzly and some grizzly tinged with light ginger. The shoulder (Dry fly tailing feathers) were more medium ginger with some light ginger splash.
I’m tying copper body tandems this week.
As Fly tyers we are pack rats by nature. Shopping and saving the best materials. My time is limited here on earth and my abilities to tie quality flies is quickly fading. Our fleshly body is not what it once was. Goat hair is hard to find and long goat hair is a real hard to find item. Theriault Farms loved it so much that Alvin bred a few fancy goats to get the perfect hair for his flies. Here is my best of the best kid goat hair that I am offering on eBay this week. I have no other as nice as this set. Some from Bill Hunter way back when he had a shop in New Boston, a pack from Theriault and those from Gayland Hachey probably came from Theriault.

When Tying streamers I used the Whiting Flatwing rooster cape a lot. They stopped producing this line of roosters. The saddles sold better than did the capes and it was not worth their money to produce an item that did not sell 100% of the pieces. Back in 2011 I bought 50 of each color and all of the grizzly colors sold to the ladies and sold fast. The white dyed did not sell as fast and I have a few pink, kingfisher blue and silver doctor blue left. I used to get more than 100 flies from just one cape. With this Silver Doctor Blue color, I could tie Eddie's Ripogenus Smelt, Silver Doctor, Spencer Bay Special, to name a few that sold well at Indian Hill Trading Post in Greenville. Here's your chance to get one. http://www.ebay.com/itm/391688385943?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649

Linda & I discussed closing the retail sales end of the shop and we decided it's best to stay open for now. This keeps me busy and out of her hair. I have been closing the fly tying end of the shop. This means that I am not tying for stores or doing any custom tying due to the essential tremor. A LOT of my tying supplies I posted to eBay in 2016 and plan to continue to do so as the supply is great.
My wife and I have been talking about this business. We have decided NOT TO CLOSE our business. Because of the Essential Tremor that has been growing over the past 20 years, it has gotten to the point that tying flies is a real challenge. I can no longer tie dry flies and most nymphs and wet flies. I can no longer tie flies that look nice to the angler due to my shaking hands.
