Re: Moose & Grizzly

nice one norm. When I saw the title it reminded me of Boris saying "moose and squirrel". You should come up with a pattern based on that for us old Rocky and Bulwinkle fans.

Sorry about taking this one off on a tangent. I guess my mom dropped me on my head one too many times when I was young.

Re: Starling source...

I think in the past the three sources I've used are 1) Great Feathers, 2) Blue Ribbon and 3) back yard.

Last I bought was from Great Feathers and it was a good skin.

Re: Big Game Solar Collector

Back during the last millenium when I had a chance to sample a caddis hatch I was intrigued by the body colors of the newly "hatched" adults. They had a lime green body. I ended up fishing the hatch with a #18 lime green soft hackle equivalent.

Re: Big Game Solar Collector

That's a lot of caddis flies. By my estimation you will be able to tie 1760 flies with that. I applaud you for finally obtaining the title of "hoarder".

With the translucent body you should get great results.

Re: What color Pearsalls is this?

if you use rayon floss wrap an underbody of white thread. Otherwise the hook color will "bleed" thru and not allow the floss to shine.

Excellent tie. Looks like you've been cruising Bergman's book Trout.

Re: Yellow Jacket Bucktail/Hairwing

I believe the book is one Roy Patrick put out in the 60's??. I bought a copy when I moved to WA in 74. If I got the book wrong it's one put out by the Inland Empire fly fishing club out of Spokane.
