Re: Fishing Discoveries "Ladder Leader" system

I have to admit that I DO NOT use the "Ladder Leader" setup. I've read the book and it looks like a great setup, however, buying the material in the US is rather expensive. I have only located the material in the UK. Sure I could buy it, but being retired and being on a limited budget make...

Re: Variegated Golden Stone Flymph

Thanks for posting this Bill. I have never thought of a double dubbing loop before. As Ray said, that opens up a lot of possibilities. My pea brain is already spinning. (No pun intended)

Re: A tying journal

I use PowerPoint to capture photos of my fly patterns, then use the "Speaker Notes" feature to capture the detailed recipe for each pattern. I've been doing this for many years, so I've got several hundred patterns documented. A few years ago, I made up a photo book with all the photos. L...

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: March Brown Spider

One of my favorite patterns to tie, the March Brown Spider. I started tying them when I was about 14 years old when I found it in Al McClane's Standard Fishing Encyclopedia, https://wiflyfisher.com/images/march-brown/March-Brown-Spider.jpg Simple pattern to tie: Thread: Brown Tail: Woodduck fibers ...

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...
