Re: Pearsall's Thread

Wow! I have been unable to tie or fish much this season and have been out of touch and did not know this. My search will have to begin for a replacement as I will likely hoard my Pearsall's except for certain classic patterns.

Re: Spymph

Great looking fly and I like the consistent body. I am going to have to give the Splymph a try again using turkey since my goose quill attempts have not produced the results I wanted. Just to make certain, by turkey herl do you mean the individual quill from the flank feather? Thanks!

Re: Red Wire Soft Hackle

Thanks for the comments. I still have a long way to go with my photography (lighting, angle of shot, background) but it was good to get some usable results.
