Re: Frank Sawyer's Nymphs

I have no idea what the fish think of copper wire; I doubt they give a rats arse. But I do. Me, I have always been a fan of the deeper, darker, copper colors.

I have got to learn how to skin out an entire bird. My closest neighbor is a professional trapper and has graciously offered complete instruction this fall. That bird is gorgeous. I have a post in the tutorials on how to skin and preserve a bird https://flymphforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=8457...
