Re: Red Rum (howling at the moon)

Ray,
A little more on that werewolf thorax.
Is that a Paul Beel Frankendub (FrankenFly) blend or just a creation of your magic fingers?
Either way, that looks like it would come alive the moment it hit the water.
I like it. 8-)

Re: Over Sized

I love fishing some of the heavier riffs where the local rainbows like to hold.
Slightly stiffer hackles and a tad longer than usual is often the key to a solid take in those situations.
Those "over sized" would be just the ticket.
Nicely done. 8-)

Re: Golden Plover Breast Feathers

those Golden Plover Breast Feathers are some of the nicest looking game hackles I've ever used and the way they sweep back is great! Gotta get a few more in the future. Bob I've been on the Cookshill waiting list and I think it's up to 40. Steve thinks he will be dead by the time that happens. Put ...

Re: mounting flies in shadow boxes, frames, etc

Nice work, Tom.
I couldn't help but notice the RNTU logo and not to get off topic but.....
I knew a few of your members when I chaired the state council.
Andy B tied one mean winged wet. Bob P helped with our youth camps and
Tim E was just full of energy. A great group of guys.
Small world.

Re: Hare's Ear, Pheasant Tails & Hackles

I have absolutely shitloads of tying stuff collected over about 45 years. And I don’t care. I will continue to collect all sorts of tying material, because I like tying flies of all types, shapes and sizes.. 8-) Now that's funny, I have only been tying for 4 or 5 years and my wife and friends think...

Re: mounting flies in shadow boxes, frames, etc

That is outstanding, Ray.
The watercolor gives it a unique look too.

I have a modest collection of some special flies I really should mount.
I noticed you used a frame with an insert that allows spacing between the matte and glass.
Is that something you made or did you find that in a craft store?
