You do.....it's called the Beaverkill. :D ......... :lol: ..........btw Ray, i dunno if you get Mike Hogue's (Badger Creek Fly Tying), email newsletter.......but if you don't, you might wanna sign up for it. He's a real nut case........(funny cat).........his writing is a crack-up.......and he sometimes has great bargins. i'm ordering the Harding, North Country Spiders book from him currently. Actually called A Guide to North Country Flies by, Mike Harding. He has it in stock, and he also has the Wet Flies Technique book by Fogg. ;)

They are both great books. My wife got them for me for Christmas. Mike Harding's book is a great read (funny).

Yeah, I need to get back to Roscoe, but I can't swing it any time soon (family stuff comes first)...

I am bumping this post to remind folks that June is prime time for Isonychia hatch. Roscoe is just around the corner, and William has been working on some wonderful Isonychia patterns. I figured it was time for me to go back and reread the information on isonychia hatches, as posted in some of these earlier posts. I hope you guys don't mind the recycled post. This just seemed like good timing to revisit a popular insect.

Ray, this thread is brilliant. Thank you again for all your work. I have a lot more to consider as I approach the imitations again. Wiggles anyone?

:shock: This stuff is timeless! I never look at the dates as much as the topic. (laughing) Some days, I think much the same pattern....

Besides.... I missed it last time it touched the top of the list!!! :roll: :mrgreen:
