Re: New Flymph Hook

Carl,

Where did you buy the new Partridge (L5A/UE) hooks? I'm still waiting for the Dette Fly Shop

Re: P W Nymph

Norm,

Are the hackle fibers for the legs the same fibers you used for the wing case (pulled forward for the wing case and then folded back and tied down for the legs), or did you actually use different fibers for the legs from those fibers used for the wing case?

Re: Half Stone Nymph

Bob,

Did you use primrose buttonhole twist for the body, or is it the same
thread you used for the head?

I wasn't familiar with this pattern, but found the list of materials in the
