Re: your honest opinion

I'd fish it in a heartbeat. Proportions look good to me. Biot tails are interesting, I usually use pheasant tail fibers. It should catch a lot of air bubbles with that spiky body, and that's a good thing.

Re: Slattery's Triple Threat

Haven't seen the article, but will try the dropper rig. Thanks for the heads up.

I've had Jim's fly in my caddis box since he published that article on FAOL. It just seems to catch a lot of fish.

Re: A PMD and a Green Drake

Really nice. I rarely fished Drakes when I lived out west, but that may change here in the east. Still figuring things out. PMD's are a favorite hatch to fish, especially on the Selway and Lochsa rivers of Idaho. Your patterns should do very well. This one has saved the day for me many times. Mustad...

Re: English Grouse & Woodcock Hackles

Out of all the game bird hackles available, Woodcock and Red Moor Grouse are my absolute favorites. Their color and softness are striking in the water.

Re: Alewife fishing

See, Gretchen, we told you they're fun fish. You should have been there the first day. There were pods of over a hundred fish and multiple pods in that pool. Nice pics and video. I have got to start carrying a camera or phone with me when I go fishing. Ginkylady, aka Gretchen, is a tying buddy of Vi...
