Re: Smaller flymphs

Joe - artery clamp given to me by Mary Dette......still the best choice. In all honesty, I’m quite surprised that I don’t see more people using this, seeing as they are readily available. Dana Thanks for posting the picture, Theroe. It sure looks like an "I need that" item, but although I found som...

Re: Jim Leisenring's Iron Blue Nymph, tied by him

Giving a choice between scarlet and claret is strange to me, essentially red-orange or brown-red, not even close to same color in my eyes. Claret and maroon are much closer, I can see subbing one for the other.

Re: Stewart's Red Spider tied by Leisenring

That redish brown to ginger color is common in barnyard chickens, heritage of the red jungle fowl and it shouldn't hard to find a suitable sub. It is just that on my monitor the fly in the picture has the hackle almost the same color as the primrose thread, more of a cream or straw color. Thanks for...

Re: Pheasant Tail Soft Hackle

I don't often fish more than one fly anymore, but, when I did stiff mono and 3"-4" droppers were my choice, a short stiff dropper tied at right angles to the leader seldom tangled for me. One day I will try one of the inline methods of multiple flies.

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

That is a very nice fly, upstatetrout. NedZeppelin, I think fine tuning is only necessary as relates to size. Something like Old Hat, I used to tie the same basic pattern in several shades and with different colored threads, even different ribbing, variations to fit most possible needs, and when fis...

Re: Type of water

The hot action can be at the prime lies in the river. This is what I meant by fishing areas that actually hold fish. Most always fish in a stream will be near some structure or cover; structure gives them a resting place from the current and cover hides them from both prey and predators. Those long...
