  1. I'm glad you pointed it out I had missed it at first!
  2. It may be too pretty to tie on!
  3. Thanks for everyone who has done so much to keep this such a great site! It is a fantastic place to come and learn! Thanks again to everyone who has made this the great site is and has always been! I have learned and I'm confident i can continue to do so! Many tight lines folks!
  4. I agree that Griffin makes great stuff, they certainly last! I started on a Griffin Spyder. The only reason I left Griffin was because of the small knobs on the front used to tighten down on the hook. After a short time the edge of those knobs cause my fingers to hurt, It may only be me. I moved to Peak with no more pain. Many tight lines!
  5. The lower priced Griffins, is where I started. I really enjoy my Peak, it lasts forever, at least I should say, I'm 75, it will be around a heck of a lot longer than I will!
  6. WOW! I can't even dream that big! I'm just poor old man, you guys are millionaires!
  7. Hey Poopdeck, you must be a skinny little fella! My belly would clean off your magnetic strip, when I first scooted up to the table to tie!
  8. Thanks Capt, you just educated me! I appreciate you!
  9. I don't tie to save money! I tie to relax, enjoy to satisfy my need to make something I use myself! Can you save money, sure I guess! Again, that is not why I tie. Several years ago my wife had a very aggressive cancer. I started tying 2 months before she was diagnosed. After that time, I tied to take my mind off her cancer. It cleared my mind even for a few minutes! Also, I'm a guy that likes the latest equipment! I also built my tying station. I don't save money, but I guess I could if I put my mind to it! Y'all have a Blessed weekend and Many Tight Lines!
  10. These are great! When I started I learned a lot about fly fishing and tying at a website called Fly Anglers On Lone. One thing about this sport you will always be learning!

  12. My vest has a velcro strap as do most fishing shirts. I lift the rod up so it won't touch the ground, then velcro just below an eye, problem solved!

    Color

    Hi Coin, Color depends on what you are fishing for or where you are fishing and even the colors you have a history with catching fish! In other words, TRIAL and ERROR!
  14. If you are a person that enjoys doing things for yourself, I suggest a pair of flip flops cutting your own poppers or buying corks and making your own poppers. You may even drink wine, if so save some of your corks and shape them to your liking! Since they are yours enjoy painting them in your favorite colors. I favorite is chartreuse, red, pink and orange or brown! Just enjoy what you are doing! If you can't nearly every tying components purveyor has poppers ready made! Tying is fun, relaxing, you can do it at any age, example, I'm 75. I have to use lighted magnifying glasses! Many tight lines!
