Re: Rio "Slinky Indicator"

Howdy All; I was trying to inject some levity earlier. Reckon it didn't take. So, I'll try this, Bazzer69, you come across as frustrated that Nymphs are being discussed and tolerated as well as ways to fish them. But really, ... isn't a nymph only a younger Mayfly?

Re: Rio "Slinky Indicator"

Bazzer69, Howdy; Dynamite also catches lots of fish as well as m-80’s, would you call that fishing if you attached a fly to every stick? Tried that, but those little suckers wiggle, scream, and protest so much it scares all the fish away before you can light the fuse and chunk it inna water. :roll: ...

Re: Rio "Slinky Indicator"

Howdy All;

George Daniel in his book "Dynamic Nymphing: Tactics, Techniques, and Flies from Around the World"
mentioned the slinky indicator but I'm thinking he referred to them as from Czechoslovakia. May be

Re: Flymphs

raven4ns, Howdy; What is a Flymph? Ok, I googled definition of a Flymph, found the link below. It's interesting on several levels as it is a forum page that has responses from several active members from this forum as well as the originator whose post is at the bottom of the page and gives the defin...

Re: emergers

Trifly, Howdy; I'm not generally one to specify anything in particular, I may offer a suggestion but I'm not a person to tell anyone anything. Let alone which fly to use. :roll: To many different subtle nuances from one area to the next. Besides, back East they don't have any concept of using much o...

Re: emergers

Trifly, Howdy; Hank can you tell me which flymph will work for his emerger dilemma? Sorry it took so long to reply. No, I couldn't recommend a particular Flymph to to use as I'm not familiar with Nova Scotia or the subtle color changes of the bugs in that area. It's a far cry from the Southwest dese...

Re: emergers

raven4ns, Howdy; Thank you, hankaye, I still have much to learn when it comes to Flymph's and soft hackles in general. Hank do you know of a site that lists Flymphs and their recipes? I have been making the mistake of grouping Flymphs with soft hackles in general which appears not to be the case. Th...

Re: emergers

raven4ns, Howdy; You mentioned a host of different types and styles in a short mouth full of words didn't see the name Flymph once. A properly tyed Flymph that would be. Here's a link that Old Hat (Carl), put together awhile back. Page 2 upper Left corner has the definition. Please, enjoy. http://ww...
