Since I'm not a full year subscriber I couldn't download the article. I was able to add it to the Pocket app and now it is on all of my devices.
I'm not either but I could right-click and copy ;) .

Re: YL1 vs Pearsall's Gossamer

Has anybody tried these? Myself, I haven't yet needed to, but haven't seen an opinion of this alternative so far. http://www.flyonlyonline.co.uk/gossamer-fly-tying-silks.html http://www.flyonlyonline.co.uk/images/resize.php?src=%2Fuser%2Fproducts%2FNorth-Country-Silk-Threads-jpg%5B4%5D.jpg&xy=100 ht...

Re: Derbyshire Blue Dun (second attempt)

Yes, how come this didn't receive more interest. It's a shame, isn't it?

To use Ray's words; it's so good on so many levels. (He would never comment his own efforts in that way, though).

Re: Doug Does Dubbing

Doug, you should try mixing fur in water as you do, with conditioner, dry it and then process it in a coffe grinder. The result is very different and nice. If you do, please tell me how you like it.

Re: Upstream Wet Fly

Nice torpedo grip on that rod. Surely, that must be what you wanted to show?

The only reel I would worship, and not even that, would be an Ogden Exchequer. I used to hate the sound from reels but I have muted it on mine. Not difficult at all.

PhilA, those are nice reels.
