Re: What's your favorite hook?

like the hook to be an integral part of the pattern that I use it for, functional and aesthetic. It's a small piece of the joy I get from tying and fishing. It's not the price point. I don't make a living at fly fishing, If I did, cost would certainly play a bigger role in the selection process. It...

Re: Semperfli pure silk... Very photo heavy ;)

Hi Karsten, I agree with Bill. Since you are connected to the company now, are you in a position to make inquiries about the silk producer? On behalf of fly tiers around the world, could you ask if they have plans to manufacture the silk thread in other thicknesses? The market for silk fly-tying thr...

Re: Semperfli pure silk... Very photo heavy ;)

Karsten,
This is so interesting—and beautifully photographed as usual.
Ironically, in a letter to Pete Hidy, Dick Clark, inventor of the spinning block, complained about Pearsall's Gossamer silk, calling it "rope" because it was too heavy for his taste!
