Re: Fly Tying Magazine recomendations

Well, I subscribed to Fly Fishing and Fly Tying out of the UK. Turns out to be about $7.50 an issue. I thought the subscription was for 3 issues, turns out it's for 12. The April issue has an article on spiders. Looking forward to getting my first issue.

Re: SOFT~ HACKLE JOURNAL

I got mine today. Bummer that it is the last, but I get it.

Just curious, had this publication been going on for more than 1 year? I googled it and saw some articles from older issues. Wished I had known about it earlier, if was being published longer.

I got my recipe from John Shaner. I'm sure he uses Pearsall, I don't have any. By the time I got into it Pesrsall was long gone...
