After not selling my fly tying tools and materials on Ebay, I took melk's suggestion and donated the entire lot to my closest "Project Healing Waters" group. I loaded up my SUV and made a 30 minute drive to a filling station in a city down the interstate a ways. He was there waiting for me and it went smooth. I had some trepidation as I was handing the boxes over. Thinking, "What if I want to tie flies again?" "How am I going to...?"
Meanwhile John was telling me about the fellas in his group, how much they enjoy tying flies and fishing
them with rods they have built. The places they go and the good it does them. I thanked him for a job well done and for letting me clean out my tackle shack.
Thanks to Mike aka melk for the suggestion. I feel a lot better about it now. Jim
