Re: Badger Flymph

Really nice. That shaggy body will catch lots of tiny bubbles. Love the badger hackle. Is that a Firehole hook?

Re: Golden Plover

Thanks for all the replies. It's not that I need one, it's that I have one from Cookshill, along with two wings, also from Cookshill. My problem is, I have never pulled a feather from the pelt, I've always tied from the wings I have. I'm 74, almost 75, and I'll probably never use the feathers. I'm t...

Golden Plover

The last time I was there I would come back from eating dinner in town to find the RV covered in small, maybe size 14 , dark brown to black caddis.

Re: Brown Owl Hackle Substitution

There really isn't a grey area about it. If your in possession of a feather from a protected species, it becomes a case of prove you didn't kill the bird. Having the feather, not it's use, is illegal and a Federal crime.

That really is a short shank on that hook. I'm liking both versions, to be honest, but I'd toss version two at a trout first.
