Re: Hot Vac

Nicely done. The body looks really tight and the wing is the perfect length.

Re: A tying journal

Hi Guys, I sort of keep a journal of patterns that I have tied in the past. It's a recipe box with recipe cards with sample flies attached and recipes written on each card! What's frightening is the backlog of patterns that I want to do in relationship to what I have done! I have a separate storage...

A tying journal

Just out of curiosity, but do any of you have a tying journal of your own? What I mean is a notebook or something similar where you have the material listings of flies that you have developed and even material listings for flies that have been around and are well known?

Re: Stealing Dubbn's fly patterns

Great looking fly. I have to admit that DUBBN's patterns are brilliantly done. And I have a soft spot for tails made of biots. My Gingerbread pattern has them and it does well in these Colorado waters.

Nicely done.

Re: Welsumer flymph

Re: The Stone Bloa

I am speechless, because words can't describe it. At least not in my vocabulary. Never have I thought you could, as in being allowed, to put wings like that with a soft hackle. I have lots to learn and you ar teaching this young grasshopper plenty.

Re: Balalock

Nicely done and professional looking.
