Re: March Brown Soft Hackle (Tutorial/SBS)

:D I love your style. Those are such fine examples of imitative fishing flies. I wish you had joined our recent swap. Ray I tend to only fish with flies that I tie. Not being snooty but if I find that a certain fly works for me, then I know I can tie more of them. Drop mea PM with your info and I'l...

Re: March Brown Soft Hackle (Tutorial/SBS)

I might have posted this pic before but the Edmonds & Lee 8b March Brown is my very favorite fly to tie and has worked great for me when fished with a Hare's Ear & Partridge soft hackle.

Re: Hackle Folding Tool

Phil Haven't been to the show since I last tied there several years back. I try to avoid shows as my "impulse buying" (especially of hackles) gets the best of me. If I'm tying, I'm too busy to do any shopping. Cheers. Bob PS - The last time I visited Dave's home, I popped down $300+ and ended up buy...

Re: YLI Silk thread junkie

Years ago, Alec Jackson (former USA Pearsall's distributor) sent me the Pearsall's embroidery silk chart to pick the closest to Straw #2. Pearsall's lost the original recipes for it as well as the other unavailable colors. I got to keep the chart and I received box of a dozen #2 Straw gossamer reel...

Re: Starling source...

Mike

I've purchased quite a few starling skins from US suppliers ove the years but have gone back to buying them from Cookshill. Might be more expensive but I think his skins are the best. Maybe there's a US company that imports his materials but I'm not sure.

Re: YLI Silk thread junkie

I just did a rewrite of this info earlier this morning but listed all the Pearsall Gossamer colors that were available to me here in the USA. Can anyone update the missing YLI part numbers with "near certainty"? Thanks. Bob Pearsall Color Number - YLI Color Number 1 White - WHT White 2 Straw - 213 P...

Re: Visiting John Shaner (Fly Tying Historian)

Regarding the Chadwick's 477 wool color, I just checked my card of 477 against the posted photo and it (the photo) is really pretty close. It may show just a touch more red but I might attribute that to the magnification. I've seen quite a few subs and the closest came from Veniard, which I purchas...

Re: H,C. Cutcliffe Flies

Received my Cutcliffe book by Paul Gaskell. Now where the heck do I get dyed Bullock's fur? ....and what the heck is a Bullock anyway? (Any sub available here Stateside?)
