Re: Timeless fly tying advice

Well, I would argue the best source of info is time on the river. Any reading is just for pleasure. :mrgreen:

Re: Timeless fly tying advice

I like that! Thanks for sharing. I have never read any Skues. I like his message though- don’t limit yourself to any particular method or “proper” dressing. The great thing about tying is you can often improvise materials. I think, too, it’s important to give credit where credit is due.

Re: Wet fly twist on a classic dry

Ok everyone- update on this pattern. Fished them today. The moose mane is not durable when chewed on by trout! This needs probably a few coats of Sally Hanson’s or varnish or UV stuff. Just in case anyone was going to tie these.. definitely cost the moose with something. They caught lots of rainbows...

Re: To Cane A Trout

I fished my Pennington 8’ and a pair of soft hackles all day today. Beautiful day, caught a lot of fish. Also bought myself a Christmas present- 1930’s Heddon 35 Deluxe, 8 1/2’, 1 3/4F. Along with a sweet old British made reel. I too am becoming a bamboo nut. Not many 30-somethings out there fishing...

Re: Flymph from Famous Flies and Their Originators

All of these are top-notch ties, and great photos. Thanks for sharing. I also like the medium blue dun and black gnat for fishing the next few weeks.

Re: Grannon soft hackle

I dig it. Would kill where I fish in the spring.
