Re: May fly Honey Dun a V.S. Hidy pattern.

I love these Hidy patterns, but keep thinking they need to be fine tuned to the bugs I see on the stream. What bug do we think is this pattern aimed at imitating, or perhaps better said, evoking?

I think this is the Semper Fli silk product interesting product description stating they match E&L colors from an actual vintage copy. Chasin’ the Grail.

Re: New member intro

Me and my flyfishing buddies obsess a bit over the RS2, and I agree we’ve always used microfibbets cocked at the correct 60-70 degree angle and speculate they function as both trigger and a rudder of sorts but who knows. I’ve got to think the earliest versions did not rely on the relatively modern p...

Re: New member intro

Thanks for sharing. The Delaware Adams just jumped to the top of my fly tying list of dries. I think that will be a killer on the PA creeks I fish. The Rim Semblance 2 is also a stalwart in my CO box, but it works everywhere, whether fished deep 18” behind a split shot or greased in the film. My new...

Re: Daiichi Hooks - New stock

One of my favorite lines in the Gierach “Good Flies” book is his back and forth between a fly shop owner:

“Who told you Mustad hooks fail?”

“The Tiemco rep.”

Re: New member intro

Well, now, as a newbie myself, having had the Soft Hackle Epiphany about 2 years ago, and who fishes the Frying Pan and Roaring Fork once a year, I gotta ask, what’s in the Colorado Six Pack?

Re: Tups Flymph

Amazing tie. And in the PMD flymph category, I’d like to acquire from some kind soul here the ingredients for one batch of Valla’s Tups dubbing from his Catskills book. Seems that if you acquire the yarns separately you not only make quite an investment but also have several lifetimes’ supply. I am ...

Re: Devil’s Advocate and Morus Silk

Reading the above, the issue with Morus seems to be primarily cost. If you drop that (momentarily) as a consideration is there any consensus that Morus is pretty close to Pearsall’s, or is there disagreement in whether even that is true? The “Cult of Pearsall’s” as the sole E&L decreed silk of choic...
