  1. I love my fly area. it is very comfortable, except for my chair....and it sucks. I need a new one...lol
  2. LMAO--- Heil Hitler then!!! I love high sticking.
  3. Hmmm, I'm gonna figure that out how they did that. What an incredible site....Bookmark...chaching
  4. You won't catch flak from me for keeping that fish. What a great story.. especially the green butts in his mouth!
  5. Al, I tie most of my nymphs with the pots weave and horse hair. I also tie a cranefly imitation with horse mane and potts weave. The hackle is weaved in with the hair. The fly is indestructible. My fav river (The Big Lost River) is full of them so pulling them upstream (even against the current) snakes out killer strikes.
  6. I am a Nikon fan and I was wondering if anyone shoots with a D3. I am considering purchasing one but would like to hear an owners prospective on this camera. What else does everyone shoot with?
  7. Holy :poop: (I've always wanted to use that emoticon) There's quite an array in this forum. I think it's AWESOME! One thing that runs parallel through us all is our love for this sport (and taking time to do it). You guys RAWK.
  8. Okay so I'm interested. I've met a nest of new people but we can't all tie for a living can we? Whats your other job and is there anyone here who ties for a living (or at least partial?) I sell real estate and I'm also a part time rock star. http://www.myspace.com/boonebarnes Come on....do tell
  9. LMAO.... the tension is building. :clapping: Good work everyone
  10. The article says the ring was lost in 1987 so that would have to be one old fish. I bet he found it foraging.
  11. Instead of shaking hands with someone you just met you wrap thread around his wrist
  12. I'm tying a bunch of twizzlers to sell on Ebay! Yahoo! :clapping:
  13. I love to look at pictures of flies on this site. It's one of the highlights of getting online for me. One thing that distracts me from enjoying these flies is when forum posters don't resize their images (800x600 is preferable) and I have to wait an eon for the pictures to load. Even on my 2mb connection some of them take forever to load, decreasing time spent viewing flies. Often times I just skip the large view of the fly if it takes to long to load. Also when a large file is uploaded on your end it takes quite a bit of time depending on your connection. When you load the picture directly from your camera the picture file is very large. It is relatively easy to resize your pictures, even all at once and directly from your desktop. If you are using windows XP read here: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/d...eschelman2.mspx If you are using Vista things are a bit more challenging, so I use a free software program called PIXresizer: http://bluefive.pair.com/pixresizer.htm You can also use online picture resizing, just google "resizing pictures" I think we could all benefit from reducing the size of our uploaded images. Thanks guys and GO FISHING!! :yahoo:
  14. WOW check this story out when you have time. A fisherman found a class ring inside an 8 pound bass he caught. Anyone care to tie up a ring fly? http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081204/ap_on_...dd_ring_in_fish
  15. oooh oooh I fish more and the dead of winter if my favorite time. I wish I had a tying buddy, then maybe I'd tie more.
  16. Can't go wrong with a pfluger trion 1934. You can hook up with one on Ebay for a great price ($49-$70) http://cgi.ebay.com/PFLUEGER-FLY-REEL-TRIO...A1%7C240%3A1318 They retail for around $110
  17. Whatcha using to hold the hook? Your pics take forever to load on my connection. Maybe you could resize them next time before posting.
  18. I really dig your photos and the personalization with the written name....ah ya and the fly rawks. Keep um coming!
  19. wicked fly. Nice looking head. Crap..... I wanna fish that!
  20. I'd buy that for a dollar. Seriously, anyone tried any engraving on your flies? It's like those foreign fellas who engrave microscopic words on individual pieces of rice. Now that would a strong seller on the Bay.... Oh and Day5, your website rawks and those flies.....incredible originals. Thanx 4 sharing.
  21. How about 6 flies of any kind except Spey and Salmon flies. We'll start the bid & 99 cents with 2.00 shipping and see who's flies make the most in a 5 day auction. When should we start?
  22. I'll post a pic of her fly fishing tomorrow. the pics are on my office comp...LOL
  23. LOL.. Ebay actually can make you some great side money. I've been selling on there for 8 years. Now I'm gonna try some flies. Hey Day 5, whats your ebay username? Link us to a couple of your auctions if you have any going. I have one going for The book "Trout Flies" by Dave Hughes. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...em=250331509354
