Re: Starling and Purple

Mike, Huge compliment and I really appreciate it! Really, I stand in the shadows (peering out) of the tall timbers that make up the Flymph Forum! I learn and try to retain (it's getting tougher all the time) the info that everyone has graced me with including yourself! Our sport is so richly blessed...

Re: Starling and Purple

Mike, Well said about Alan P. He was a peach of a guy and a whiz at the vice not only with soft-hackles of all sorts but with feather wing streamers tied in the traditional way!

Re: Silk Color
