Re: Partridge and Blue. Mole colour effect

I used Partridge and Blue spiders on the Henry's Fork last summer. Had some good hook ups. Figured the fish had never seen them.

Re: Stripped Peacock Quill Bodies

My experience with UV resins is that they look great when the fly is first tied but 3-6 months later the coated part of the fly has turned fuzzy and milky (not clear). Have you used this particular product long enough to comment on this?

I tried one as Bob suggested. Pearsalls 6B touch dubbed with light mole for the body and light Partridge Hackle.

Re: Tups Indespensible nymph

Where's A cop when you need one. My impression of a tups is more pinkish but this is what is in the book.
