Re: Some softhackleish fleas, photo heavy :|

Re: Hooks used on Leisenring & Hidy Dressings

Of course Leisenring preferred turned-eye hooks, remember, he, as most anglers in his time, fastened his fly to the tippet with a snell or turle knot, which requires a turned eye to work properly. Leisenring's hackling method allows for a tiny head with no effort, yet, we see he built a long, conic...

Re: Hendrickson soft hackle

Re: Stendalen

Martin your Rusty ties look pretty damn good M8 ;) I especially like the last two. Embarrassed to admit although I love the look of your Tups and others I've seen, it's a pattern I've never tied nor fished :P Might have to remedy that! I've got some beautiful Tups dub generously sent to me by Ray ab...
