  3. This one's for the Soft Hacle Swap... SBS to follow
  4. Gyroscopic's in action. Nice!
  5. I'm really looking forward to this. Lots of good stuff going on here. Thanks for hosting, DF
  6. Unlike the proverbial check, the flies are in the mail. The pattern is a March Brown Spider. From "The Soft-Hackled Fly and Tiny Soft Hackles" by Sylvester Nemes, here's the recipe (page 142): body: Mixed hair from hare's face rib: Narrow gold (small gold wire in this case) hackle: Brown partridge tying silk: Orange Enjoy!
  7. It's done by controlling it when its in the air. If you notice on some of the jumps the tires stop turning all the sudden/slow down while its in mid air, that's me hitting the brakes to bring the nose down to land nice and flat. It's a tricky thing to learn and I still have some where I grab too much brake and nose dive, or hit the throttle too hard at the lip of the ramp and then it goes vertical. And that is not a good landing when 50lbs comes crashing done on the tail of the chassis ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
  8. Nice balance on those jumps. Is that how the weight is distributed in the truck or is it more a function of using the controls to manipulate how it lands.
  9. Iโ€™ve been doing the same thing for 35 years and have enjoyed mostly all of it. I can tell you without a doubt that I will not be doing it for 42 years. I wish him well.
  10. Flies arrived in fine condition. Really enjoyed seeing the different patterns in this collection. Thanks to each of you.

    Fly tyers

    never knew them
  15. Sad news indeed. His feathers were the best by far. I wish him well.
  16. Charlie has always been a straight shooter it was sad to see him leave the shows and now leave the business. I wish him well with his family issues.
  17. Thirteen dark watchets are on their little way, 2-5 day estimate for arrival USPS 9400109205568660514708 pics and SBS to follow.
  18. I agree that the wings splitting does affect the appearance of the fly. However, in one of his videos Mike Lawson says that the wing splitting does not reduce the effectiveness of the fly.
  19. Thanks, @Jaydub. Looks like it. I may have to google those and see if I can figure an application for tying I'm salt only so maybe...
  20. Someone already PM'd me so they are alloted.
  21. It would go right through that PVC fence ๐Ÿ˜„
  22. Most valuable was probably the Shimano Stella reel on a G loomis rod (spin setup) I found next to the dirt road that lead to the boat access by our cabin many years ago. Most likely the owner had it sitting too high in his boat while going up the road, and a tree limb prob hook on and pulled it out of his boat. I tried to find the owner but this was back before the internet was big, so outside of a note at the launch and talking to the local bait shop I never was able to find the owner.
  23. I wouldnt run that beast into the fence either ๐Ÿคจ
