Re: The Flies of Bob Olach (joaniebo)

Many thanks for the nice compliments and, especially to Ray for mounting and posting the pic of this Old Bearded Bohemian's flies. As you can tell from the pic, I'm of the old school (?) type who beilieves in more heavily hackled and "fuzzy" bodied dressings. Although I love to see others' flies wit...

Paul

Thanks for the info but I was going to order several YLI silks and would like to add the 6b alternate to that order.

YLI 6b Alternative

Anyone have a YLI number for an alternative to the old Gossamer 6b silk? Just wondering.

Those flies are for fishing not framing. Guess I'll have to send more IF I can remember what I sent! Cheers

Re: The Art of Trout Fishing in Rapid Streams

What I find interesting is the concept of matching the body and hackle colors... plus, since I tend to over hackle and over dub, I like the pics in the Cutcliffe book.

Re: Gray Grizzly Flymph

If you want to send a few my way, I'll let you know how well they work in the Cheese Country ditches, sloughs and run-offs as soon as the temps rise!

PS - That goes for anyone else that need their flies "field tested" by an OLD Bearded Bohemian named Bob!

Re: Pheasant Tail Soft Hackle

Bob Every now on then, I might get the point fly tangled when NZ-style fishing, but not very often. I think it happens if / when I rush my cast. If I use a "normal" 6" - 8" dropper, I find that I have a very hard time if the dropper is a dry fly or a heavier nymph. Using the 6" - 8" dropper with two...

Re: Pheasant Tail Soft Hackle

Bob - What do you mean by "fished New-Zealand style"? Can you describe this fishing method? I'm ready to learn! :D Simply put, tying the point fly / tippet to the hook bend of the first fly instead of having the first fly being on a short dropper tippet and the point fly being at the end of the lea...

Re: Pheasant Tail Soft Hackle

I can't say exactly how many different Pheasant Tail dressings I tie and fish! Personally, I believe that just about any fly dressing using Pheasant Tails will catch trout. I tie PT soft hackles with various hackles (Partridge, Golden Plover, European Grouse, Woodcock, Various Hens, etc.) and use ma...
