  1. Pretty sure it's emu. They are attached at the bottom correct? I have some in my collection somewhere, but I never found them too useful for any patterns I tie.
  2. Nothing in a couple weeks. check his other thread he posted on flyangler as well. He said he was in a car accident.
  3. I also use a tripod and remote to reduce the blur at longer shutter exposures. Thanks for the info.
  4. Could you not just adjust the aperture to a higher value to create a wider DOF? I usually shoot my flies on a setting of F16.
  5. Nice job. I really like the curve of the tail and the nice wing.
  6. Stellar pics Dave. I like the second best.
  7. I like to use the CS15 hooks as well. They have a nice bend and eye, and I like the heavy wire. I used some of the MM hooks last year, which were great, but just not what I was looking for.
  8. Wow. I have been admiring your flies for a long time. Thanks for sharing this pattern. It looks very cool. If I do attempt it, I will post the results here.
  9. That is really sad to hear. I knew he had been sick for some time, but it's still always sad. He will be missed.
  10. I've done a few by sewing them to the backing. I buy the craft foam sheets, and sew the hooks down with fine copper wire. The wire blends into the hook nicely and gives the hook a floating look to it. All nice looking flies fez. What do you plan to do with the Texas / New Mexico flies?
  11. I'd do it too. Here is a link to some of the patterns off of the poster for inspiration. Fly Pattern Popularized by Carrie Stevens
  12. If you must dyed it black, first dye it a dark colour like purple or brown, and over that, dye black. Like TB mentioned, Black is by far the hardest colour to dye. It's cheaper to buy black.
