    Default 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.

    Respectfully

    Denny

    Sucks that I'm not buying Hackle from you, but it'll be the same Hackle as before.
    Congrats on the retirement Denny.

    Denny,

    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!

    Fly fishing and fly tying are two things that I do, and when I am doing them, they are the only 2 things I think about. They clear my mind.

    Denny;
    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
