Re: Smaller flymphs

Old Hat!
That 22 is on a 1965 Lincoln in fairly good shape.

Re: New member intro

Bonjour Jean-luc... Here in Central Oregon, I fish soft hackles in 16-18's almost exclusively on the Crooked River. It is a challenge to find feathers in those sizes, but there are good posts on the forum about how to use larger feathers on small hooks. At times, I will use a larger fly as an attra...

I agree! Mine came about 3 weeks ago and I don't think we live THAT far apart. Gaskell put a lot of research into Cutcliffe and John's contribution of his collection is impressive. I knew Shaner would be at the Fly Fishing show in Edison, NJ and took my book to get his "hancock" to add with Paul's. ...
