Re: Who Fishes Wood?

I just watched it as well. Very insightful. It’s true- think of all the hands that culm of bamboo passes through and all the miles. All the hands that pass over that same bamboo after the maker and then those who admire and fish it.

These are made to fish and not sit and collect dust, right?

Re: Starling & Moose

Ronr- I tied in three strands- white, black, and brown. Moistened then as I’ve had this same pack of moose mane for long as I can remember. Small bead of super glue on the thread base to be safe.

Where is your neck of the woods?

3-4 wraps of starling, three strands of moose mane (white, black, dark brown), size 16 Limerick. Small dab of super glue was applied to thread base to help the moose mane stay put. Very midgey.

Was inspired by my visit today to the flymph forum to break my “dry” spell and tie some wets. Heavy size 14 sproat bend, split-thread natural tan awesome possum, and 2 turns of grouse. Oh yeah, and krystal flash antennae.

Re: Who Fishes Wood?

I do! Most of my trout fishing, unless it’s very windy, then I go to graphite. My medium action bamboo just gets shut down very easily in the wind.

Re: A PMD and a Green Drake

Thanks for the input dubbin. Ron Eagle Elk- thanks! I will spin up a few of your PMD and add to the box. I caught the big Brown Drake hatch last year and it was magnificent. I think we will maybe catch the tail end of it or miss it this year. Water has dropped and clear and salmonflies showing up do...
