Thanks John. I'd like to turn this into a tutorial at some point, along with pics of the process.

Re: Dating Mills Flies

Unfortunately, I am unable to add any information to this conversation, other than to say I find this sort of discussion fascinating. I love seeing the flies, reading the side discussions about history, and the detective work going into dating the flies. Great discussions by all.

Please continue...

Re: Bubble-Back Soft Hackle Series

Thanks Hank. Yes. I was forgetting FTD had UV fibers. These may be the only materials I have not tried from his site. Yet... :D ;)

Re: Bubble-Back Soft Hackle Series

Ron - I have never tried UV materials in this series. Great idea. You've now got me curious to know if anyone sells UV treated antron fibre. Is there a way of treating materials at home, to make them UV?

Re: Leisenrings July Dun

Tom - Are you forming a tapered underbody, before wrapping the body? How are you forming that nice carrot shaped body? Lovely proportions. The short tail fibers remind me of Skues "whisks".

Bill - Those look fantastic! Lovely...

Btw - I’m going to steal your fly holder idea. Very cool.
