Re: Protected Bird Species

Hi Bob, I've been following the thread on the Bamboo board about Snipe as well. There must be something about the MBTA which excludes birds sourced outside the USA, but I've not seen the actual wording of that exclusion. Steve, from Cookshill, says it is ok to send Common Snipe, Euro Golden Plover, ...

Thumbs up!

Re: Fly Library

Do you folks think that flat storage of soft hackle flies in pocketed pages would damage the hackle?

I guess if the hackle doesn't get folded, it should be ok?

I worry about how some of my fly boxes (I use slit foam) can mess up some of my (more delicate) flies.

I like the Plover hackle! I can't seem to find Black Spaniel dubbing online to purchase, though. ;)

Re: Mrs Haase

That's a beautiful fly! Reminds me of my "go to" fly at the Middle Fork of the San Joaquin, the Sierra Bright Dot. I found a Ray Bergman reference to this fly. Can you explain to this ignorant noob what Black Hackle and Slate Wings means? It sounds remarkably generic. I guess you can use A...

Re: Sink tip line

I might be banned from this forum for saying this, but I use these weighted leaders when dragging streamers with a floating line. Big ugly streamers.

Re: Sink tip line

I've used Rio Versileaders for this purpose.

You don't have to switch out lines or reels while on the water.

Re: T E Pritt's #11 & 12 March Browns

Hi Bob, did you rib with gold wire or with yellow silk as Pritt specified? Very nice!

Not to quibble either, but these don't look wingless! :D
