Re: Quill-slip wings vs. Dabbler-type wings

I believe Dabbler type wings are rolled slips. If I’m wrong please correct me. Dabbler flies are popular when fishing British stillwaters. I don’t think there’s much new in them. A
silver invicta or a solder Palmer might be good examples of a so called “Dabbler” fly

Re: The Scarlet Letter Flymph

This one I like and I bet it will fish just as well as the one with synthetic. Our forefathers had plenty of glass seed beads available, I’m wondering how long back copper bead were available?

Re: Bracken Clock

For what it’s worth, one can hear the Welsh pronunciation of coch-y-bondhu on an episode of Hinterland, which you will have to watch in it’s entirety as I can’t recall the episode. They just rebroadcast that episode here a couple of weeks ago. I didn't enjoy it enough the first time to watch it aga...

Re: Team of flies but no droppers.

I’m not sure how New Zealand could claim to come up with method of tying “droppers”, but as a guide I’ve been doing it for more than twenty three years and I was show how to do it by a guide who was guiding in my neck of the woods for a lot longer than I. I'm not sure that they're the ones who clai...

Re: Team of flies but no droppers.

I don't see how this rigging would restrict the movement of the dropper any more than a "New Zealand" rig (attaching the point fly to the "dropper" via a length of tippet tied to the hook bend) which I use regularly, especially on windy days. I still catch plenty of fish on the "dropper". The metho...

I must be slow but for the life of me I can’t get the search function to search for all the words. I was trying to search for silk gut but it keeps excluding the word silk no matter where I put the + sign

Re: Smoke Fly

It’s a great Fly, but given how fragile peacock herl is I wouldn’t expect the fly to last more than one fish. I suggest that ribbing with gold, silver or copper wire would make for a far stronger fly or coat the hook shank with super glue or head cement immediately before wrapping the twisted herl f...
