Re: Daiichi Hooks - New stock

[/quote] Fast forward to Thanksgiving 2019: that same friend had some of the newer vintage hooks, and they were quite terrible, similar to the new partridge hooks which earn an equal ranking spot in the garbage can. [/quote] I just bought a bunch of Partridge hooks, can you tell me which series you'...

Re: Upstream Wet Fly

I enjoy Olivers videos very much and really can't get enough of them. It's his style of fishing I grew up on and have proven to myself many times that fishing downstream I will lose more fish. I'll cast directly upstream at times depending on the situation, but at times will also cast up and slightl...

Re: Names of flies / dressings

I have thought about listing my flies & didn't know quite how I was going to do it. Reading this post just helped me to decide on how I'm going to list my flies.

Thanks joaniebo for bringing this subject up.

Re: New member intro

The original Betts Microfibbetts were sable paint brush bristles. I helped John package up a bunch of these after he had cut the brushes apart and dyed the fibers. We needed some sort of signal yesterday to know who was who. I didn't see anybody in a kilt but a lot of other folks. Charlie How could...

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 ...

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 ne...

Re: New member intro

nowadays it probably includes Oskar Blues...fine craft brewery... I gotta ask, what’s in the Colorado Six Pack? It isn't Coors? I tried to implement 90 Shilling, but it didn't work well. The more I implemented, the more my flies looked like something else. I now stick to scotch when I tie. :mrgreen:

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? I hope I don't get banned for this, but this is what you get, but sometimes it varies . . . slightly. The D...
