Re: The Fly Fishing Bible of Nymphing

Very good! You have to let us know how you like the Orvis fly/tippet box. Right now I am using a thin hard, card. I made slits in both ends and secure my droppers in both ends. No flies attached to the droppers yet, just the loops at one end. John I think I'm really gonna like the Orvis box. I thin...

Re: 477

Nice score! So, seeing how it's almost impossible to find, do you plan to use it or save it?

Re: "The Mayfly Guide" by Al Caucci

Ray, Thanks for posting the link. Like you, I would rather have a hard copy, but that ain't gonna happen at that price. I just downloaded it. I have downloaded a couple hundred PDF versions of out of print books, and read most of them. Yes, I would love to have hard copies, but I just can't afford t...

Re: "Trout and Flies - Getting Closer" by Peter Hayes and Don Stazicker

I just finished reading my Kindle version of the book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Very interesting information. The accompanying videos are a major plus and done extremely well. There were a couple of videos that didn't work, only the audio. Interesting ways of looking at tied flies that I had...

Re: Wet Fly Fishing (1960 Sports Illustrated Magazine)

Congrats on the find! I found a copy that a library was getting rid of last summer for $1. I already had a copy, but couldn't pass it up for a buck.

Re: Stonefo Hackle Pliers

I've been using the second pair that you show for several years now. I love them. I love how my finger fits in the hole to wrap hackle, very easy. Just need a light touch. Let us know how you like the first pair. I have a pair that twists, but has a long handle and I hate them because of the long ha...
