Re: Scruffy SH

My kind of fly; Doesn't imitate anything specific, yet looks like a lot of different things that are good to eat! Nice job! :D

Re: Scissor Recommedations

Good morning. I am also a BIG fan of Fiskars, although I use the "normally open" type. Very sharp and a very reasonable price, ans can be found at most any fabric store (Jo Anne's, etc.) One thing to watch for with any scissor is that the tips line up when closed. No gaps in any direction....

Re: Saber Hooks?

Looks like them, Dave. When I first got them, thought they were a little light, but have tied on them, and they seem to be ok. Bright finish. I agree; they should ride in the film fine.

Re: Saber Hooks?

Cark- I agree, lots of hooks available these days, and most are pretty good. Saw some "swimmy" hooks in the right sizes for $6.95/100. Not a bad price.

Anyone have any experience (good or bad) with Saber hooks? Price seems good.

Re: Dubbing Block; Old Dog Learns New Trick

Hi guys,
Clark dubbing block:
I pencil in the thread type/color, and the dubbing type just above the bodies. Usually make up 1/2 dozen or so bodies at a time with pre-measured lengths of silk. I keep my cards in a file card box. I have marks on my desk for the thread length so I can pre-cut them.

Re: Purple March Brown Spider

Yes, it is quite striking. Very nicely tied, should be very popular with the fish. ;)
