Re: A PMD and a Green Drake

Thanks for the input dubbin. Ron Eagle Elk- thanks! I will spin up a few of your PMD and add to the box. I caught the big Brown Drake hatch last year and it was magnificent. I think we will maybe catch the tail end of it or miss it this year. Water has dropped and clear and salmonflies showing up do...

A PMD and a Green Drake

Hello everyone, hope you all are doing okay. Been since the March Brown swap that I posted. I’m getting ready for summer trip to Colorado and knew that my boxes wouldn’t be complete without a few flymphs. I modeled these two after established patterns. One is Alan McBee’s PMD Transition Flymph and t...

Re: Sparsely tied & sweetly fished

No sir. That is a Classic Era Heddon #35, light trout action. The Classic Era was considered 1933-1938. Possibly a 96-year-old rod! Like Capt. Gus said in Lonesome Dove: “The older the violin, the sweeter the music.”

Re: 10 Years of Davie McPhail on Youtube

I watch most McPhail videos. I have learned a lot from him. The main thing that comes to mind is an understanding of how to tie winged wets. Not saying I’m good at it, but his videos gave me a start.

Re: Pheasant Ostrich and Quail ("Hunting Dog")

This is a really cool pattern and post, letumgo. I am going to copy this for summer drakes. Maybe vary the colors some. Thanks for sharing!

Re: Hendrickson Soft Hackles

Those are great looking flies, sir. Nice photo too. This is not intended to “hijack” your post at all. But the dubbing brushes- I haven’t quite come to understand the purpose. I know they’re a traditional method and, obviously, they make a great product. I use the split-thread technique with great e...

Santa was a fly fisherman

And I’m pretty sure he fished an old Heddon and a pair of wingless wets.
