Re: Question about the use of fine wire ?

Wanted to get the thoughts of the members here why fine wire was not used more often on the delicate bodies of many of the old traditional patterns. Was tying the “Old Master” for the first time today and was thinking of adding extra fine wire to the herl body as I felt the body would be too fragil...

Re: Safe Material Storage

I throw a few Bounce fabric softener sheets in my Rubbermaid storage boxes. Also put them in a bunch of places in my old VW Beetle when I store it for the winter.

Woodcock Undercovert Hackles

I'd like to tie few size 14 of Pritt's "Old Master", per Rob Smith's latest video, (using a Canada Goose feathered body) but I'm out of the necessary Woodcock Undercovert hackles. Could anyone spare a few? Thanks.

Re: Pritts Greentail

Bob, The thorax on your flies has a very spikey look to it. Did you use the split thread method, dubbing loop, or simply twist it on your thread? Thanks- Ken Ken I'm lazy. Just twisted it on the silk. Tightly at the begining and end of the "noodle" and looser in the middle Bob
