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...
