Re: Custom Leaders - My next adventure

Bob,
Thanks for this interesting leader formula! From what I understand and have read and watched, Oliver Kite was a terrorist with a flyrod!
Thanks again,
Doug

Re: Fishing wets over stocked trout - wingless 2:1

Ronr,
Is it possible to get a recipe & a picture of Dubbn's version of Partridge and Yellow? I love seeing, tying, fishing and hopefully catching with all the great versions that are out there!
Thanks, Dougsden

Re: Quote of the Day

PhilA, Thank you this "Quote of the Day" as it pertains to old anglers! This was precisely the same thoughts that I had of our departed friend Bill Shuck at the Roscoe #1 flymph gathering as he skillfully landed two hard pressed trout from a tailing pool that nearly everyone had flogged as they made...

Re: Francis M. Walbran North Country Flies

John, I was just reviewing this post about Francis M. Walbran and all the wonderful replies from everyone!

Re: Flymphs and Spiders (Tyed by Bill "Tie2Fish" Shuck)

Ray, This is a beautiful post and I really appreciate you doing this for everyone to see! Bill and I swapped flies for several years and I always looked forward to seeing the small boxes on our dining room table with his particular hand writing on the label! It was like Christmas! Although I don't h...

Re: Fieldfare Bloa.

Tom, Your Fieldfare Bloa looks like it jumped right off the pages of Pritt's classic! Very well done indeed! These guys had it! Apparently, you do to! Please pick another one from the book and post it here asap! Did you mention above (I can't remember) that you have not tried it out on your waters? ...
