Re: Fernow

Norm,
I really like this pattern! It reminds me of the "Butcher" or "Alexandria" but with more subdued tones especially thru the body! I think this one would be a killer on most of my waters! Thanks for bringing it to us!

Re: French silk thread

DarrellP, I too just rec'd a spool of French silk (orange, my favorite) from a recent Feathercraft order. I too bought it just to experiment but, as of yet, I have not experimented! It was good to hear about the larger sizes of silks as compared to Pearsalls! Bill, your picture of the silk shop and ...

Re: A new small stream rod...on the cheap.

Ron, This is what makes America great! I loved following your story progression until you reached a good rod/reel combo.....and dirt cheap! Way to go friend! Let's take a look at it! Pictures please, hopefully with a trout or smallie attached to the business end! I am loving posts like this! Dougsden

Re: Swimming Nymph

Ray,
I'm loving this minnow pattern a bunch too! It is screaming....Smallmouth, Smallmouth! And, I don't think the Largemouth will reject it either! Great patterns friend! This is what keeps you at the top of your game!

Re: Hare Brain Emerger

Beautiful Ray, absolutely wonderful pattern! And, so perfectly executed! You make it look so easy! Even a duffer like me could bring it together! I love the way the colors blend (harmonize) into one buggy looking fly! You have done this well!

Re: Dick's Killer Bucktail

Beautiful pattern Steve and as Ray said, It's good to see you posting again! It sounds like you need a hobby to occupy your time! Might we suggest fly fishing and tying?
You are indeed a busy man! Gotta admire you for that!

Re: Ida May

Wonderful pattern Norm! The colors Ida May's dress are fantastic! The whole package is just right in my minds eye! Great for you-know-who's in certain small, still waters close to my house!
Keep it up Norm! Great work!
