I have retired
Just wanted to let all of you know I have retired completely.
Conranch Hackle no longer exists.
The new Owner of my birds is Lars Benson of Clearwater Hackle.
I understand that he will join FAOL as a New Sponsor soon.
He does have the birds all set up at his place and has undergone one successful period
of breeding. He does have inventory at this time. I am sure you will have the same high quality
dry fly and wet fly quality hackle that you have had from Conranch for the past 15 years.
I am also positive that you will also get the same top notch customer service.
His inventory of hackle may be a bit limited at this time but know he has a good offering of JV hens, and some very good Dry Fly stock. His new web site will be up and running shortly.
He is a New Member of FAOL. Please give him the same welcome and support that you all have given Liz & I over the years.
I have been retained as a consultant so know the same top quality hackle will continue.
I will remain as Admin for FAOL.
Hope you have additional time on the water, Denny.
Definately sorry to hear you no longer will be running Conranch but, be assured I understand about retirement. Congratulations and may you have plenty of time on the water as well as some quality time with the mrs.
Sucks that I'm not buying Hackle from you, but it'll be the same Hackle as before.
Congrats on the retirement Denny.
Congratulations on your retirement. Glad to hear your stock is in good hands. Hope you get to spend as much time on the water as you want.
Good for you! Now you can devote more time to fishing and rod building. Enjoy your retirement and make sure to take good care of your health.
CONGRATULATIONS!!! ENJOY LIFE!
I hope you enjoy your retirement. Thanks for providing a great product over the years and for all the work you do here to keep this site so successful.
Still using some JV hens I got from you a few years ago. Makes great soft hackle. One is a color I never saw anywhere else.
Thanks and good luck
My very best wishes for you, Denny. Enjoy your new era of freedom :cool:
Please pass on my regards to Liz also.
your Lowlander pal
Congratulations! We will miss Conranch but, we're glad you are hanging out here.
Thanks for all of your work with the birds and the BBS.
