Hey guys, this is the basket

Hey guys, I wanted to say a quick thank you for assisting me and my wife with the basket for her friend. The basket came out pretty great! All the flies were tied with great skill, and the fly rod that was sent... absolutely stunning! It isn't in the picture as it will go into the basket after the drawing. It was too big to wrap and I don't want someone lifting it from the table! Anyway, here is the basket:

Thank you again guys!

Edit: Ok, the image is NOT populating correctly, but just follow the link and it'll come up!

Re: Hey guys, this is the basket

Glad to see the flies made it. I wish I could have put more in to the basket. Hope the help either way.

Re: Hey guys, this is the basket

Don't sweat it, all of you guys did plenty! It was a load off to not have to tie all those flies myself! I tied eggs, a couple ants, and a few caddises. We got a bunch of woolly buggers and some worms and a bunch of other nymphs. It ought to make a really nice basket for someone who is either new to the sport or been in it a long time.

Re: Hey guys, this is the basket

It all turned out very great! I'm sorry I could have sworn I posted a thread on how the party went. My wife said the basket party totaled near $6000 in donations. Our fly basket generated some interest, and my wife put in over $50 on tickets! The basket ended up going to a gentleman who (in my opinion unfortunately) does not fish and has no interest in fishing. From what we understood he will be re-donating the basket to another event. I almost didn't want to announce that part because it's disappointing!! Thanks again guys, it was truly great!

Edit: I have one picture from the event that if I can get from my wife I can upload. She was at the event without me so only managed to get one picture of the winner with the basket.
