Re: Ephemera and Semperfli silk threads

Welcome Bob!

Sorry I have never used those silks, but I love the fly. I have replaced my Persall's I have run out of with Kimono & YLI.

Back in the 80's as a born again flytyer, I cut up my Kaufman's catalogue and put the photos of flies I wanted to tie in 18 compartment Plano boxes. ;)

Re: Muskrat Dubbing the easy way

I keep an extra rake on my expo tying table to demonstrate with a critter skin at tying shows. But I'd rather keep the bulk of the expo time devoted to tying with my prepared dubbings and hand out the flies to interested beginners. :)

Re: Hooks

For most of my tying I use Wholesale Fly Company hooks. I can not prove it, but I believe they are the Old Dai-Riki hooks. At 7.00 per 100, they are a great value. Here is a link: https://www.wholesaleflycompany.com/ In my opinion, and that is all it is, they are better or equal to most of the bran...
