Re: New member intro

The original Betts Microfibbetts were sable paint brush bristles. I helped John package up a bunch of these after he had cut the brushes apart and dyed the fibers.

We needed some sort of signal yesterday to know who was who. I didn't see anybody in a kilt but a lot of other folks.

Re: My attempt at Stewarts Black Spider

Great fly.

I've had folks tell me that a fly as simple as this can't possibly catch trout. I don't try to change their minds, I just tie it on and catch fish. Works really well in the South Platte.

Jim Anderson lives in Longmont and is a member of this forum. He'll probably be at the tying gig.

Re: New Pearsall's Silk Substitute

This is probably against all the rules of the Brotherhood of the Flymph; however, I just use YLI white silk and color with a waterproof marker to anything I want. YLI 100 is about 30% finer than Persall's but it seems stronger to me.

Re: woodcock

Try the seller 'woodyshuts' on eBay UK. Had lots of soft hackle stuff the last time I got some.
