I have a couple of NS hen capes in other colors. They are fair at best. I am looking for better. I am very picky buyer. :)

Ron, sorry about the shoulder issue. I have read good things about the Echo SR fly rods. I sent you a PM.

Re: Kimono/Pearsall coordinated numbers

Bill, that is cool. I could have used your setup to put the Lazar shooting line on my new reel last night. It would be a lot faster than a pencil and begging my wife to hold the pencil for a minute. :) Hardy-Ultralite-4000-Reel.jpg My wife held the pencil for two Hardy Ultralite 4000's for new back...

Re: Pearsall's Gossamer Silk Colors – Wet and Dry

Speaking of color matches, the not-so-famous color No.32 (Classic Chestnut) is a pretty good match when wet to the elusive color No.6B (Sherry Spinner). https://i.imgur.com/uVukffO.jpg But wait! There's more! Classic Chestnut is available right now (2/16/2020) at Jim Slattery's fly shop. https://ji...

Re: Upstream Wet Fly

Smuggler, the Firehole is absolutely magical, as is all YNP. I love it in the Fall.

After the potato was introduced to Europe circa 1570 - 1590, the inhabitants of the monasteries were divided into two groups depending upon their kitchen duties; Fish Friars and Chip Monks!
