Re: "The Mayfly Guide" by Al Caucci

I can't do it, I just can't. It has taken me years to get over not having a Boston Sunday Globe in my hands on Sunday. I'm still struggling with newsprint withdrawal to this day. The Bangor Daily is but a shadow of its former self and its online 'paper' is a royal pain in the arse. I can't even begi...

Re: Hare Duns

I started trying some of the Firehole hooks after seeing some of the patterns that Alan Petrucci was tying with them. After seeing what Carl has tied (those flies are gorgeous) I'm inclined to keep buying them.

This thread reminds me that it would be a good time to go back and read 'Sunshine and the Dry Fly' again.

Re: A PMD and a Green Drake

A pattern much the same works wonders up here on the Aroostook. I'd probably tie it on a #20 if I could make my fingers work that small.

Re: This Kid

I have two 20 month old grandsons living with me, twins. Anything in their hands longer than a pencil and it turns into a sword fight. Rods? Noooooooooo.

...and the tying room; good gawd, if they get loose in there they're worse than the cat.
