Christmas wishes and thanks...
As Christmas fast approaches and the end of another year appears on the horizon I sit here quietly reflecting on the year that was whilst the rest of the house sleeps.
It has been a good year, an interesting year and a humbling year.
2010 saw the launch of Bug-Bond the first tack-free UV cure resin that was designed for fly tying. The launch followed 12 months of research and has seen two versions of the material launched this year with further products in the wings for 2011.
As a result of Bug-Bond I have had the honour of being invited into a great circle of fly tyers and have tied alongside the some of the world’s greats at the Spring Fly Fair in Newark, the Dutch Fly Fair, the British Fly Fair International and then the International Fly Tying Symposium in New Jersey… it has been a blast and I have made some good and true friends along the way.
The time of reflection is a time to thank a cast of thousands scattered across the globe for making this year such a great year. That cast includes every user, reviewer and supporter of Bug-Bond… there are really too many to name and perhaps to single out a few would be unfair.
My heartfelt thanks to all my family and friends who have made this year possible, a journey they have been on with me for almost 2 years. Thanks to those who have become good friends during the year, the Bug-Bond Pro-Tying Team and the retailers both here and overseas.
The biggest “thank you” is to every person who has emailed an enquiry, stopped by at a show to say “hello” and of course to those who took the plunge and decided to invest in Bug-Bond.
Users of Bug-Bond are scattered across the world and are to be found in over 30 countries across 5 continents.
Wherever you are I hope that you and yours have a peaceful and restful Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Tight Lines for 2011…
