Re: Scissor Recommedations

Thanks narcog, I didn't even think of an exacto knife, I have a set in my tool box. Mike - I'm gonna have to get a set of Fiskars and try them out since they really aren't that expensive. wsbailey - I don't have a scalpel, but that sounds like a good idea. I always make sure my razor blades from my ...

Re: Scissor Recommedations

Thanks guys. Ray, I will definitely look into The Dr. Slick scissors, I really appreciate your help and insight. I hate wasting money and buying something only to find out what I bought wasn't really exactly what I wanted or needed. I have done that way more times than I want to count. Dave, thanks ...

Scissor Recommedations

I'm not really sure where this post should go, sorry if this is in the wrong place. I need to buy some scissors. I am using Anvil Ice Stainless. They are okay, but I need a pair, (actually 2, one for home and one for my cabin) that will let me cut the hackle really close to the thread. These don't a...

Thanks for posting this John. Yet another book to add to my library!
I received my copy yesterday. It's a 1972 second printing in great shape and only set me back a Jackson. :D
Not bad. Mine's a 1972 second printing too, in great shape for $6.84, with free shipping from Amazon.

Re: Leisenring color and materials book

Thanks so much for posting this info and pics! I have been soaking up as much info as I can on soft hackles and flymphs over the past year. I think I've read 50 books this year. Reading The Complete Angler by Issac Walton and Charles Cotton now (free PDF version). Thanks for the info on the Magazine...

Re: Isosplymph

Nice job. I really like that fly, a lot. I'd like to try that one on the AuSable during the Iso hatch.
