Me too Ray on both counts......
The Genesee Jewel done by both Bill and Alan is just top notch! I'm adding this one to my winter tying list!

Re: Copying an old pattern

Wayne,
Your pattern is awesome! I love every aspect of it! The epoxy adds a whole new dimension to the look of the abdomen! The whole fly has a bugginess that can't be beat!
Keep feeding us,

Re: Grouse and Flash

Thanks Dana! It's still a tough thing to find a few moments to set down at my lap top and especially to comb the best forum in the world! I can remember only one other summer that I ran the weedeater more than this past one! This includes keeping the two ponds on our farm slicked back! Plants have r...

Re: Silica Gel for moisture control.....

Holy Cow Hank! I am loving the low humidity but, yikes on the 102 degree temps! You live in a great place Hank! I would like to come see you some day!

Re: Silica Gel for moisture control.....

Guys, Thanks for the great responses! I never thought about the need for drying them out after a time they are in service! I am fortunate to pick up a few packets a week where I work from different boxes that come in! I also hoard them and rotate them in and out of the storage boxes that I have. I h...

I was wondering if anyone has had any practical experience using silica gel packs for moisture control in either storage boxes that contain feathers, furs, etc. or in rod cases to keep the cork handles and rod socks from getting musty? No, I still do not have air conditioning in my hous...

Re: Mark Libertone's Tool for Creating Spun Bodies

This is very interesting! I did not know this tool existed! I have seen similar marks on William Anderson's beautiful spinning blocks. Does anyone else have marks like these on their blocks?
