Re: Salars Nemesis

Guys, Sorry so late in responding to this thread! I do have two samples of Bill's Salars Nemesis' hanging on my wall of fame here in the den!

Re: Frank Sawyer's Nymphs

Bob!
These patterns look terrific! It is so good to see the originals that Frank Sawyer produced (like Ray said). They are wonderfully slender and sparsely tied which seems so lifelike! Thank you for bringing this thread to life for us to enjoy!

Re: Green Midge

Norm,
Yea! I am liking this pattern a bunch! I know of some bluegills that would eat it up as well! I need to colorize my midge box and this does the trick! Thanks Norm!

John,
Fascinating flies from an unlikely source! I am very interested in the history behind these patterns and the man who tied them! Thank you for bringing this us! You did it well as always!

Re: A little "Betters" influence in this Orange Partridge

Wow Alan! They are little soft-hackled bombers! I am with Ray and the others on this one! I have GOT to get this one underway! Have you swung this one in front of your friends under the waters surface?
Simply wonderful! Please keep creating and renewing!

Re: Endrick Spiders

They were very well rec'd on the lower levels of fishdom! Your spiders would do just as well down there I am very s...
