Re: Tying a Black & Purple

I went to the shop and picked up a bag of purple ice dub. Dropped the black and used a wood duck flank feather instead. A big brown that broke the tippet before it made it to the net smashed it on the swing a few weeks ago.

I think I have a bunch of Dai-Riki in storage in the garage. I'll see what I have and would be happy to send them out if someone wants them.
Carl, I've never tied on those hooks, i'd love to have a few if you wouldnt mind.

Re: Scissor Recommedations

Hey Greg, hope all is well. I haven't been north but intend to get a trip going in the next few weeks or so. My son fished some small streams last weekend and had great time. I had a similar problem with the stems and now use a razor blade to get close. I was also wrapping the feather forwards on th...

Re: Top 6 Commonly Used Hen Neck Colors?

I have a few necks that I seem to migrate to. One is a green wells neck and one is a badger neck. The both have a darker color near the rachis with lighter color near the outside of the barbs. I have no other reason other than the darker color inside seems to cast more of a shadow near the thorax. P...

Re: Saber Hooks?

Rodger, I think these were the "Swimmy" hooks you referred to. I believe that I received them from my sister and her daughters a year ago for a birthday or Christmas present. I haven't tried them on the water yet , but they seem to be nice enough. Not a heavy hook, so they should ride in the film ni...

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...
