Re: Brown Hackle Peacock

Hot Spot Squirrel.

The latest and greatest soft hackle in my neck of the woods.

I am sure it will work when a Guides Choice does. Anyway, I tyed 3 up. Hope I don't forget I tyed them and find them again in 3 years.

Re: Brown Hackle Peacock

Do you fish these year round, or at a particular time of year? I’ve mostly fished them in summer months, thinking that were a good beetle imitation. I’m curious to know if you’ve fished them year round. That is some mighty fine looking brown hackle. Nice rich coloration. Ray, I have to admit that I...

Re: Black Spider... kind of

Fishnkilts, Kind of like casting... Practice, Practice, Practice. :) It also helps to have started tying over 60 years ago and learning at a couple decades of Expos with world class tyers! ;) Today the NET brings those expert tyers right into your home. :D I don't think I have 60 years left in me. ...
