Re: Lisenring's March brown

I'm certain your fly will be successful. I recently tried it too. Twisting the pheasant tail and the thread plus the wire rib sure provides durability. It worked for me in late Apr, even though the March Brown hatch was over.

Re: Sparrow

Two words come to mind: Museum Quality!

What thread did you use for the head and what did you coat it with to get that glow?

Thanks- Ken

Re: March Brown from the John Shaner fly wallet

To paraphrase a famous Oklahoman, "I never met a March Brown I didn't like"!

Can someone add a link to the Shaner Fly Wallet post mentioned by T-12?

Thanks- Ken

Re: Pattern Specific Species

Very interesting to see how the different fish were 100% selective to a certain pattern. I wonder if that result would change if you reversed the positions of the flies?

Re: Blind dogs (Tups Wannabe)

Wayne,

Beautiful hackle and perfectly wrapped. No wonder that fish couldn't resist!

Re: New out of print book for me

I just bought a copy over on the Classic (Bamboo) Fly Rod Forum that appears to be unread. Rejoyce with me!

Re: Early Black Stonefly nymph

Does anyone have the list of materials for Oliver Edwards' version of the Little Black Stonefly or Early Black Stonefly? I believe it might have been featured in one of his videos.

Wayne,

I say, if they catch fish, your sin is forgiven!

Re: Governor

If you could look up "classic wet fly" in the dictionary, that is the picture they should be showing!

How many strands of peacock did you use to obtain that fullness on the body?
