Thank you Bill for the recipe, bud, it is very much appreciated. REE gave me his recipe but I'm not sure it is the same one. I'll have a few tied by tomorrow and if it ever stops raining I may be able to get out fishing. Thanks again.

ah HA:

Re: Felt paged wallet OK for all soft hackles?

There's something deadlier than moth balls that used to be available from Wal-Mart but I can't remember then name of it. Anyone ...? I don't know if it's what you mean, but, 20Mule Team Borax powder is all my storage zip locks and containers. A laundry brightener, that I'm told is used in taxidermy...

Re: Felt paged wallet OK for all soft hackles?

Dana, I’m with you in the moth problem. I to use moth balls, spray, yellow things you hang up and some Mexican slips you put in a electric heater thing. I still get them! Bastards the yellow thing WAS the best - "Shell No Pest Strip" - more toxic than Love Canal and Chernobyl combined......taken of...

Re: Custom Leaders - My next adventure

great stuff - love the milk jug idea, Hankaye!! In the late 19080's, I was on a custom leader kick - it is a lot of fun. Plus you can fabricate leaders for any purpose, and get your tippet to behave exactly how you want. Anymore, I just buy 9' tapered to 3X, and add my 5' of 3X with three loops on ...

Re: Saber Hooks?

If I ever have to take a dremel to a hook, I will know right then I have been cheated. So weird With the very old Hardy hooks that I have there is no way pinching the barbs down works, a broken hook every time. I’m not the only one who uses a Dremel to remove the barbs. It’s a fine tool in both sen...

Re: Felt paged wallet OK for all soft hackles?

I've used the Cortland wallets for years, I love them. You need to take a little extra care but that care is part of what makes my fishing fun for me. Nice tip about the ScotchGuard, Dana. I hadn't thought of that and now I'm stealing it. I do have a relevant question though; bear with me. I have t...

Re: Felt paged wallet OK for all soft hackles?

Finally got around to taking some pics of my felt wallet. Please excuse the quality of my pics. They are a deadly combination of poor photo skills and a cheap camera. :oops: The flies are the latest batch from the vise waiting to tested on the water. http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb138/jaydawg...

Re: Top 6 Commonly Used Hen Neck Colors?

Those are all lovely flies and deadly looking fishing flies. I like your hackle density. If you want a more cone shaped collar, try folding the hackle fibers before wrapping. Or simply pinch the fibers into submission after finishing the fly. The hackle fibers are quite malleable and can be “traine...
