Re: Silver Ibis

I agree with Ron. The herl looks so tight and clean and the colors are brilliant.
Once again, well done!

I looked up that book, Forgotten Flies, and I couldn't find one for less than $1,500. It must be a magical book.

Moonlit Hooks

Worth taking a look at, especially right now when you can get a pack of competition hooks for $3.00 for a pack of 25 hooks. Their Togatta hooks are on sale for $10.00 for a pack of 50. I found these hooks accidentally online and looked them over. They seemed nice by the photos and they are having a ...

Wool socks? My wife would kill me if she saw me using my wool socks to make flies. :lol:

Blae and Black

So I got the book, The History of Fly - Fishing In Fifty Flies and the Blae and Black was the first fly I saw. I said to myself, I can tie that. It was first tied in the 1800's, and after my attempt, today may be the last unless nfrechet does one to show me how it's really done . . . PLEASE! :D http...
