Re: Tinsels and other Bling...

Your sign needs to show your formal title...“William Lovelace - Ambassador of Flymphing” ;) :D

I wish I could have sat across from you, watching you tye. Did you get a picture with Dave and Hazel? If so, I’d love to see it.

Really nice body work. Well done. ;)

Makes me daydream about fishing this for brook trout. Pretty fly, for pretty fish. :D

Re: Australian possum dubbing

John,

Very cool! Please post the nymphs, when you tie them. I’m interested in seeing them.

That dubbing looks great.

Re: English Grouse.

Very nice indeed! I look forward to seeing what you create with these feathers. The quills look like they would work well for some Clyde-style flies as well.

Dana - We received 10" inches of fresh snow last night. Plenty for our first dusting. You can have the rest. :twisted:

Re: Vincent Marinaro Wet Flies

John - Would you have any idea what hook the top fly is tyed on? I am guessing the middle fly is tyed on a Model Perfect bend hook, and the bottom fly is a sneck bend hook. Do you agree?

Would it also be possible to get a measurement of the size of each fly (millimeters)?

What a treasure!

Re: Fox Squirrel dubbing

Outstanding! This has really gotten me excited about making up another batch of spun bodies. The wind is howling outside, snow accumulating over night (1”/hour). Tying season is underway. :D

How are you liking that YLI silk thread?
