Re: Gosling attempt

I actually like your variant better than the original. I seem to get some tippet twist with those flies with palmered cock hackle on the body. I'm going to use your pattern and see if I can tempt some brookies out of some local ponds. I think I have some seal that will do just fine for the body. I ...

Re: Gosling attempt

Thanks guys. Ron, that definitely could be. I basically just too the recipe for this fly from Hans Weilenmann who did a video of it. I thought I may be able to use it effectively in some ponds I fish. I actually like your variant better than the original. I seem to get some tippet twist with those ...

Re: Golden Brown

I'm too old to wrassle with bulls anymore. I've already been threatened with disembowelment if I ever attempt any fly tying cooking adventures in our new kitchen. My retired science teacher friend says he wouldn't trust me with firecrackers, let alone picric crystals. I've been rooting around all af...

Re: Golden Brown

I just went through all of my masks and tails and I don't have anything that compares to that color; and I really want to dye some up now. I've got a retired science teacher buddy, I think I'm going to hit him up and try and score some picric acid. Having never tried to buy the stuff, would getting ...

Re: Hot Bunny & Beaver

I like the fly, but I can't get past the name (it's awesome). It sounds like a remake of 'Thelma and Louise'.

After spending most of my adult life telling anybody who will listen just how much I HATE the 200, I actually really like the 201. Go figure...

Beautiful tie. Consider it stolen; it will work very well up here.

Re: Desecrating the Sacred Soft Hackle

Some people have been known to use garden hackle…… I was fishing with a very good friend who was catching ten to my one. Couldn't figure it out. Watched him land a fish, release it, reach into the top pocket of his waders, dress his fly and make another cast. When it got too dark to see to fish any...
