Re: Tups Jinglers - Different Shades of Partridge

I really like those flies, Ray; so well done.

...and this idea of using small dry fly hackle in the thorax is one I absolutely intend to try. Thanks for the inspiration, gentlemen.

Re: Vixen and Hare Flymph

That is a gorgeous fly, Sir. Calling it sublime wouldn't be a stretch.

I must have the same computer as Roadkill, I get the same hint of yellow/green. ...I'm not not complaining, I'm just saying the fly reminds me of the Creamsicle's from my youth bookended with a touch of pistachio. Genius.

Re: The Yellow Partridge.

I love that book, so much fun tying from it. I spend too much time with the orange and the green, I'm going to tie up half a dozen of these and devote a little more time to them. Beautiful tie!

Re: Blue Partridge

I love the ties, they're absolutely beautiful. As for Doug's assertion that our finny friends fall all about themselves in an effort to attack those delightful morsels..., all evidence to the contrary! Maybe it's a midwest thing... I do like the idea that Trout can perceive aesthetic beauty and act ...

Re: Smaller flymphs

I just ordered a Dr. slick clamp from Amazon for $10. I'm anxious to give it a try on the smaller Starling feathers that give me so much trouble. If nothing else I can hang it off my vest and use it for flies; tweezers aren't a hands free operation.

Re: Wash Your Hare! (preparing hare mask)

I love your tutorial, Ray, I do, ...but all I could picture while reading through it was Frank, the apocalyptic rabbit from the movie 'Donnie Darko' getting a makeover.

Re: Purple and Hen

Yup. Brussel sprouts, cauliflower..., vile, vile, things. I can do broccoli now, but it took awhile. Never liked asparagus either, then I grilled some one night for my wife. I blame the wine... I liked them that way, you know, charcoal on the outside, burnt on the inside. I don't care how much purpl...

Re: Purple and Hen

= Purple and I have disliked each other in the fly fishing arena for many decades. I blame Purple for most of my failures on the stream. Purple has never work for me either - EVER. Maybe, this is because I never used Pearsall‘s purple :shock: ? That is up until now – Mike sent me a spool of authent...
