Re: Clark's Spinning Block vs The Dubber

That would be nice, thinking Osage Orange would be pretty also. I have a piece from a broken long bow around here somewhere. I'll have to find it.

Re: Lesser Green Flymph

Great Fly Bill!
It would work well on my streams for sure. Where's the like button anyway?

Re: Merganser and Jasper

DD,
you mention Jasperized. I think that's what this thread is. I believe it's two strands of some orange version of Gossamer with one Black strand. I picked up a spool of it a few years ago and haven't tied with it. I'll have to dig it out and untwist a bit of it.

Re: Merganser and Jasper

Bill, the Jasper silk is a great complement to the color of that feather. Beautiful tie as usual. What size is the hook that you used on that one?

Re: Team of flies but no droppers.

I would love to see the tutorial as well. I would also love to learn the method of getting my collars to sweep back along the length of the fly as Dana shows in his box . I try to press the hackles rearward and they still point outward somewhat. C'mon Theroe , what's the secret? They look too fishy ...

Re: Masters of the Nymph Flymphs

Carl, when can we expect a video series of these being tied? They caught my son's eye when I was viewing them last night. He loved them as well. The flies and photography are too cool!!!!

Re: Gold Stork Variation

Bill, here are a few photos of the Hooded Merganser flank feathers. I've used them for tailing , but not much else. PM your address to me and I'll put some in the mail for you to do your magic with.
