Re: The Early Brown.

Thanks for the post and pic, lovely tie.

Re: Roger Fogg, I have a couple of his books and they are great reads and sources of info. Highly recommend his writings. He used to have an internet site but haven't seen it for quite awhile. Glad I copied / downloaded his info / articles.

Re: Glossosoma (Little Short-Horned Sedge)

Thanks for the posting and pics. The name rang a bell, so I looked it up on my MacBook and found a pic of some that I tied quite awhile back. Have no idea what I did with them but will have to find them before I go fishing in Cheese Country again.

Re: The Yellow Woodcock.

Nice looking fly dressing. Next to Golden Plover, I think Woodcock and Red Grouse hackles make great looking flies with various colored silk bodies with / without dubbings.

Re: John Swarbrick - John Turton Dressings

Now I'm really confused! If I recall correctly, I downloaded / copied the info many years ago from (possibly) Don Nicolson's old web site. I tried today to do a web search from the old links I had for Don Nicolson's site to no avail. But I did find a pic on Abe Books (https://www.anglebooks.com/list...

Hope the info works for you. Right now, my TU buddy and I plan on being your way the first week in June. Will be staying at a friend's place in Roscommon. Cheers

Re: Powell's Squashed Beetle

Nicely done Bob, I really like the effect of your starling hackle. A few questions for you. Is the starling tied in by the tip or the base of the feather? and do you you wrap to the front or to the back? I have tried a few times to replicate the hackle as shown and have been unsuccessful. Any insig...
