My son has sytarted a business for his 7th grade year.

This is his ad from another site if anyone is interested in supporting him, and getting some fish catching flies!

For my 7th grade school year, I am starting a business. I am tying and selling saltwater flies.

I started flyfishing last year and started tying recently.



Here are my patterns:










Do they work?





YOU BET!
and before everyone yells at me about the Boga Grip, I only use it on small fish.

Price is $3.00 each, or only $30 a dozen. Shipping is $2.50 (no matter how many):thumbup:

Please allow about 1 week for delivery, I tie as I get an order.
Thanks!


UPDATE:

Thanks Michael for the order!
Thanks Orlando Outfitters for all the help this afternoon.
And thanks Dad for clearing a tying bench for me.


Here are some additional patterns I am now tying:





This is for size reference

lol

His fly business is better than his dad's commercial real estate business......................

Last night, he had one order for 2 dozen flies, and an order for 3 flies.

He is getting very good at it, and did a great job in the WPB/Jupiter canals last weekend with the whippy stick and his "only a mother" fly.

I just hope you cut him a break on his first Egret. ;) ;D ;D

He's a good kid!
Shipped his first two orders today!

Ron, as far as Egret, anyone interested can get an unbelievable deal on a new one right now. Frank has 3 16's , and 2 18's he built spec, and wants them gone before 2009. Boat motor and trailer priced lower than a Hewes Redfisher. If you know someone in the market, IM me and I can give you details.
