Re: Presentation Methods

Hi Carl, As you probably remember, in The Sports Illustrated Book of Wet-Fly Fishing (1961), Pete Hidy wrote a chapter on stream strategy, pages 29-53. You might want to take a look again. He gives a number of presentation ideas that are surely a mixture of things he learned from Leisenring, and fro...

Re: Flymph from Famous Flies and Their Originators

Hi Carl, I've enjoyed following these patterns as you posted them on Instagram, and am happy to see them presented here so beautifully. Dad spent a lot of time teaching others how to tie these, and would be happy to know that you are carrying on, all these decades later. Your photography is also sup...

Re: Salar's Nemesis Redux

So interesting — #3 or #12, both impressive flies. Thanks to Doug for sharing the book, and to Bill S and Bill L for the photographs of their little beauties.

Re: Adams Flymph Evolution

Karsten, Your point about preferring to keep the fly close to the surface is interesting, and has come up in the past.
