A little help plz (throw some flies in the mail)

Post by TX. » Tue Nov 29, 2016 9:28 pm

Ok, so I've been doing senior high school mentorships for a few years now. This year I'm doing a fly fishing one for a kid. Single (teacher) mom, dad's not in the picture at all and owes back child support. I'm trying to hook the mom up w/ Christmas stuff for the kid. She was gonna get him an Orvis starter outfit but it's now not in the picture.
Socks has been gracious enough to offer up some waders for him. I'm giving her (him) wading shoes, a rod, Wheatley fly box...and some other stuff.
Would y'all mind sending me some reject flies?
Anything to help fill the box up would be awesome.
I don''t have any old reels laying around so was gonna look on ebay for something for him....Okuma or whatever...so if anybody has a shitty old reel they want to shoot to me, that would be awesome as well.
Good kid, good cause.
Thanks in advance.
PM me for mailing addy.

Very cool thing you're doing with the mentorships. I'm sure I can find a bunch of stocking stuffers for the kid. :cool

I was given a reel in the pay it forward thread downstairs. Consider it the boy's. Comes with a spare spool. Let me know the line weight and I'll get it rigged up: one spool with distance backing and one with accuracy backing.

Good onya Scotty!

Seems to be a lot of this going around as of late. I've mentored a couple of boys in the same situation.

Send me an addy, I'll forward out some flies.

and because this is the suk...is the mom hot?
