Hi. I just saw Cameron Francis perform his Three Fly routine which is available to see for those on his mailing list. It's a great routine, magically and entertaining from beginning to end. I would post the link here but I don't know if I'm allowed to.

Hiya fonda, my friend...Hope all is well.Smile

Didn't know Cam did coins, thought he mostly just cards? I would love to see his work with coins, if you can post the link. Smile

Thanks for posting this, Fonda57!

I know, most people think I only do card stuff. But I actually do all different kinds of magic. I find myself creating more card tricks than anything else, though.

The beginning of this routine was loosely inspired by Jay Sankey's "No Jacket Required". The second part, the 3 Fly, is a little Kenner, a little Daryl, a little Gary Jones and, of course, inspired by Jonathan Townsend.

Thanks, MB.

Yeah, I hope people aren't expecting revolutionary, knuckle busting moves, here. This routine was designed for lay people, not to fool magicians. Smile

You can't really hear it on the video but when I made the first coin appear, a little girl to my left audibly gasped. Sometimes we forget how powerful a simple coin production can be to laymen.

He has a dern good coin in bottle in one of the notes and in one of the recent issues of Genii, my mind is drawing blanks as to specifics, which is not unusual for my mind. And it is not the standard coin in bottle. Has a one word title.

Okay, it's called Discipline and it's in the Aberations notes available on the website. Just got Let's Get Small, really good packet card magic.

+1 for me. Cameron, do you have this routine published? (Sorry in advance if I missed mention of that). Thanks!

Hey, Romano. No, the routine is not published. The 3 Fly isn't mine. And I'm sure the first phase has been done before. I don't know by whom as I'm not super well versed in coin routines. But it seems like something that must have been out there before. Sankey's 'No Jacket Required" was certainly an inspiration but it's actually a bit different than the Sankey routine.

Thanks for all the kind words, guys!

I remember the description of T. Downs going to his pocket. It came at a certain point.
