Re: Hackle Pliers

The one I've found most useful for smaller hackles is the basic Stonflo model. Your J. Dorin ones look nice William. Tim, I'm not sure what I would do if I ever wore out the J Dorins I use.

Re: Adair...

They're long, up to 3X gape distance and there's numerous turns of hackle. By spiralling the tying thread back thr...

Wingless wets are fished wet and don't have wings (!) Soft hackles can be any shit you like that uses softer hackles. T...

Re: Woodie Upper and #5 Yellow

Golden plover skin for an immature wood duck? Who'd part with golden plover?
Sounds to me like a New Zealand colonial deal, your 240,000 acres for these 2 muskets :-).

Re: Woodie Upper and #5 Yellow

Very nice Bill.
I sometimes wonder whether wax should be used on these beautifully coloured silks.
Your tie shows they still work well.
