Father and Son

I don't know if I've posted this before but it is probably one of my very favorite videos about fly fishing.

I’ve seen that chart before but my old eyes aren’t what they used to be. Wondered if someone bought a YLI 100 in the green and were happy with the color match.

Highlander Green Alternative

Anyone know the YLI number that is a close match to the old Pearsall Highlander Green? Thanks.

Re: Golden Plover Breast Feathers

Answering my own post... tied up a dozen or so of Pritt's Water Crickets after watching Robert Smith's YouTube video and those Golden Plover Breast Feathers are some of the nicest looking game hackles I've ever used and the way they sweep back is great! Gotta get a few more in the future.

I have a full Cookshill Golden Plover skin that Steve Cooper sent me awhile back.” So, I g...

Hare's Ear, Pheasant Tails & Hackles

Re: Golden Plover

I was on the Cookskill list for a long time. I found a whole G plover skin listed on FeathersMc for 80 smackers and pulled the trigger. It went into the freezer before I even opened it and when I did, it had been infested before I got it. Not a happy camper... Go with Cookskill but don't hold your ...
