Re: Lime Green Rockworm

Ray, your a bad influence. My wife says I can't play with you any more. Just kidding. Our order (notice the "our") from Fly Tying Yarns arrived yesterday, including some of that delicious Lime Green. Green Rock Worms will soon be taking a spot in our boxes.

I agree, hard to find words better than fine Cognac. Just perfection on a hook.

Re: Valsesiana

Re: Valsesiana

Bob, I've used it when I have limited back cast room when using a standard 9 foot rod. I'll be trying it out when my new Tenkara rod arrives.

Re: Wagon Wheel

That will hunt. That's probably the best herl body I've ever seen. Lovely fly. I know, right? His are so elegant, almost bonsai-like. Mine come out looking like something that would grow off a 1980's hair band drummer. Dang, Mike, I wish I had a like button to push. I'm still laughing. I've tried d...

Re: Odds & Ends

Norm, I've been viewing your flies for close to two decades now, I think, from back in the old FAOL days. You never cease to amaze me.
