Re: Dubbing Block; Old Dog Learns New Trick

Ken, you are a natural! ...or it is that beautiful Oregon myrtle wood. :D I used to adjust the amounts of the dubbing as far as thickness on the strands, but I had always found myself picking out some fibers after attaching it to the hook shank and before wrapping the strand around the hook just as...

Re: William Anderson Demonstrating Clark Dubbing Block Technique

Hi Mike, I had a similar problem when I started . I was using some bow string wax. This wax wasn't nearly as soft and sticky as the toilet ring but also never seemed to harden up like William and the others on the board show. I was fortunate enough to come across a vendor who was selling cakes of du...

We have some here in Michigan, but they are becoming more and more rare. I believe that the decline is due to habitat and other factors. I would love to come across one th...

Re: Powell's Squashed Beetle

Nicely done Bob, I really like the effect of your starling hackle. A few questions for you. Is the starling tied in by the tip or the base of the feather? and do you you wrap to the front or to the back? I have tried a few times to replicate the hackle as shown and have been unsuccessful. Any insigh...

I was in my early teens in the 70's. It helped a bit to have an aunt and uncle only 10 years older than me to haul me to concerts. Rochester Syracuse buffalo and alfred university we normal upstate shows around us.

Re: Lucky day...Is it a Mink or a Weasel?

Update, got the rest of the story. Apparently, the father of one of my employees has been losing a chickens and ducks for a week or so. He figured it was a coon so set a few leg hold traps around the pen. The other night, he heard a commotion in the pen and went out side to see what was going on. On...
