Re: button hole twist

If you're not dead set on silk you might try DMC embroidery floss. It comes in many colors and is not that expensive. Also easy to seperate into smaller strands. Just a suggestion.

Re: Hendrickson Soft Hackles

Thanks guys for the answers to my question about Golden Plover. I've never even seen the feathers in person. I'll keep an eye out for some and get on Cookshill's list. From photos I've seen of flies tied with it it is a beautiful feather. Feathers really are some of natures most beautiful creations.

Re: Hendrickson Soft Hackles

Good looking fly. So I have to ask. Since Golden Plover is about impossible to get does anyone know of a suitable substitute? Thanks.

I really like the colors in those yarns. Just might have to look into getting some. :)

Re: Gordons and Hendricksons

Beautiful flies. I can tie Woodduck wings on dries without too much trouble but I still can't do much with them on wets. I'm not sure why. They either come out to sparse or wrong length or something. lol Need more practice I guess. Good excuse to sit and tie flies, right.

Re: Itch Scratcher Soft Hackles

I forgot to mention great looking flies also. I wish I had a way to photograph some of my flies but I don't at the moment. Hope to before too long.
