Drakemag.com is a supplement to the Drake Magazine, a grassroots journal for flyfishing enthusiasts. It was founded on the principal that too much contemporary outdoor writing gives away all the answers to people who never learned what the questions were.

I've been curious man...you fish the salt out your way? Question's been bugging me for a while.
I like to bug folk on the other side of the planet... especially for a while.

Furthermore, the post office labeled the box with a zip. Know anyone from Claremont, NH? Dave told me that you are from NC, so I don't think these are from you. They sent this in with labels that say "Bullship" and even has a letter signed as Bullship. Hell, let me know what you think. Below is the email I sent you before I got all Sherlock Holmes on it.
Hey dude. I hope all is well. I got your flies today and need to chat with ya. First of all, I would fish the hell out of the flies you sent and they would certainly catch fish. I love that polar chenille stuff and use it all of the time. Fishy as hell. Dave spoke really well of you and said that he saw some really good tying from you at the SCoTF show, so I know that you can wrap a hook.
That being said, which one of these is not like the other?
For reference, I personally spent about $40ish on the materials on my flies and have put in 3-4 hours of tying in on them. Some of the flies that are coming in have two hooks, cones, rattles, eyes and exotic materials. I'm not sure how those people will feel about getting your fly back in return.
The other two things are that you also a) forgot return postage and b) forgot a lighter.
So what would you like to do?

Unfortunately I cannot accept bitcoins, I have actually never used them before. I had PayPal, but my account information was somehow hacked so I had to cancel my account.
I understand that people are hesitant to pay with a MO or personal check, but unfortunately those are the only forms I can take.
I have a 100% feedback on another forum online where I have sold many things. If you like I can send you my feedback report.

Oh I see. I stated earlier in the thread that bidding will end 1/28/2014 at 6:30 EST. Someone already thought I was changing the rules when I said what types of payments I could accept, so I don't really think it would be fair to move up the close date and don't want to cause any more confusion.
I didn't think that this keyring would have so much interest, that's why I decided to let this go on until tomorrow evening.
