Should read Good "DEED" not "DEAD" whoops...(hard to change thread titles) I purchased a brand new fly box, filled it with about 12 brand new and a few more consistent performer self-tied SRC flies and donated it to my son's school for an auction fundraiser. Epoxy heads, reverse spiders, clousers, soft hackles, Kwai Chang Kanes. I never saw them at the auction. The crew handling the auction were never able to locate the box or the flies. They vanished. I guess it is Karmic good news, the shop I got things from is happy regardless, as are the SRC. The Sonicare toothbrush (new, still in the box) we also donated fortunately made it, we bid it up a notch or two, and now someone out there hopefully has some nice shine to their teeth kind of like this lil' feller An entry-level jihad I wage is against British Teeth, my take-home message is to not complicate things. I have learned my lesson, I will donate tooth-cleaning supplies in a large well-marked box exclusively to school auctions from now on.
