Re: Whitlock's red fox squirrel nymph and variants

Ronr, Do you also have his video....or DVD on Red Fox Squirrel Hair Nymphs? It is awesome! Your patterns look pretty stinking awesome too! Talk about fish getters! Please take lots of pictures and report back when you can! I'm anxious to hear! A great fan of Dave Whitlock's creations and yours, Doug...

Re: Protected Bird Species

Joaniebo,
Wow! A well composed list for sure! It is sad to see all the much loved (by us soft-hackled nuts) species on the list! Now, we locate the substitutes! Thank you for this!

Re: Lord Gray

Beautiful Norm! Sorry in being so late in getting back with you! This nymph is gorgeous! It is ever mindful of the fuzzy "Muskrat" by Polly Rosborough or the Black Drake Nymph by the same!
Your tying is wonderful! Always!

Re: Grizzly King

Wow Norm, Here's a walk down memory lane! This is one of the first wet patterns that I attempted a few decades ago! I was really proud of myself for bringing the materials together and getting the proportions right! This pattern turned the corner for me and spurred me on to try other patterns. Other...

Re: M & M Flymph

I love what the mink fibers do in the thorax! They look like legs! You brought this together really well! I think caddis are God's gift to us as tiers and fishers!
A tremendously good looking pattern friend!

Re: Bridge 99 Emerger

Mike, I have to disagree with on the hook! It has "graceful lines"! On the smaller scale (having to do with total shank length), Tiemco's 3761 has these lines (humped shank) but not quite to the degree of the 200R or TFS 2312. Norm, a very interesting looking emerger pattern! You do these ...

Great thing is I have all the ingredients....somewhere.....behind me....in the den closet! You are a great inspiration Norm! Thank you for what you do and do so well!! ...
