Re: Experiments in Dying Muskrat (playtime)

That turned out well, Ray! I was thinking that you could make some awesome Casual Dress flies with that color. I'm getting ready to do some serious dyeing but right now it's too hot.

Re: Pearsall RAYON Thread

Skues had one nymph pattern that used artificial silk which I assumes refers to rayon.

Re: Teesdale flies

Ray, there’s a preview on the website. On FB I believe he gives more of the history behind the book. The prices direct from author are £15 softcover, £25 hardback, £9 postage for either. The book is based on The Teesdale Angler” by R.Lakeland. That book can downloaded for free. http://www.gutenberg....

Teesdale flies

There’s a guy on FB taking orders for his book on Teesdale flies. It’s available from the publisher but direct orders to him are quite a bit cheaper. I ordered a copy but I have no other interest.
