Re: Clark's Spinning Block vs The Dubber

I love a good prototyping project. I look forward to hearing what you come up with.

As an aside,( http://www.jsflyfishing.com/fly-furnitu ... brush-tool ) it may have already been done. I thought I had shown this here before, but I couldn't find it.

Re: Aftershaft Partridge Egg (milky egg pattern)

It looks fantastic wet! Sorry to hear you picked the barren part of the crick to try them out on. better luck next time. (There will be a next time, right?) Looking at it wet, would the red thread "head" appear as the blood spot on the egg? I've never seen fish eggs in the wild. Frog eggs, yes, Salm...

Re: My Latest Junk.....

JUNK?!?!? Gads, man! You're talking trash on one of our favorite tyers! You better watch yourself, or we will send someone 'round to deal with you! :twisted: Beautiful flies, Doug. The one you are impaled with is one for the ages. I like the full collar look. (I must, because I tie so many like it. ...

Re: Aftershaft Partridge Egg (milky egg pattern)

:lol: Y'all funny.
I have the same issue with tying and fishing a Woolly Bugger. It just doesn't feel elegant enough. Kinda almost cheating.
Maybe that's just me....
As egg patterns go, that one's a beauty. You really ought to give it a drift anyways, in the interests of science, you know?

Re: Hartwick's Silent Assassin SBS

Every time I see a fly tied with Guinea, I remind myself that I need to get me some of that.

Scott,
A wonderful pattern, and a beautiful tie. Thanks a bunch.

Re: Baillie's (Stewart's) Dun Spider

Re: Baillie's (Stewart's) Dun Spider

<snip> Same hackle/thread twisting process as your Baillie's black? Seems like I missed a step in there somewhere, lol. Not unusual for me. :? Could I bother either of you gents for a little more explanation? In any case, I like the fly. It looks like something my little panfish buddies might like ...

Re: Dell's John Deere Caddis

You could also leave a long tag and make a rope to wrap forward.

"Rope to wrap forward." Kinda rolls off the tongue, doesn't it? :lol:
