Re: Pearsall's Silk

Thanks Dana!

I have fresh unopened boxes of 12 that I pull the orders from.
I do have a bit of a hard time letting the Silk orders leave the shop.
When they're gone they're gone.

Re: Hooks used on Leisenring & Hidy Dressings

Leisenring preferred Messeena hooks.
Messeena hooks were bought by Venaird"s.
According to Davy Wotton The hooks were in the basement of Veniards for decades.
A flood came along and ruined them before I could salvage them from the basement.

Re: Pearsall's Thread

From what I understand it is health issues mainly is the demise of Pearsall's. Hareline looked into perhaps having VeeVus making the thread but at 2000 spools and less a year for the various colors it is just not worth it to them. This is true of most other manufacturers. One alternative is SemperFl...

I know someone who bought the last of the remaining stock., Some 3200 spools of gossamer sprinkled in with na...

Re: Getting the Hackle Length Correct

A good rule of thumb is to make them the size of the total hook length. From the front of the eye to the back of the curve, A sixteenth of a inch either way is close enough though with smaller flies you might want to get within a thirty second.
