Re: Wet fly rookie question

You can "dress" a fly or you can list the "dressing". Just as you can "tie" a fly or you can list the "materials used". Just depends if you eat crumpets or English muffins. :D

Re: Nemes fly recipes

Re: Keep on tying!

Perfect little wingless wet fly Barry. That would be solid on just about any stream at certain times of the year. Good to see you posting photos.

I tend to use gold beads most often, but have wondered if the choice of a silver bead would be a better representation of an air bubble surrou...

Re: Olive caddisfly

Love the snow shot! ... and the pattern John. When I look at a pattern, I don't necessarily look at every little detail. I don't think the fish do either.
