  1. Very nice!!!!!!!!!!!
  2. Other than issues like the "fly only" waters.... Throw anything that'll catch a fish!! Check out Tom Nixon's book about using spinners and plastic worms on flies. He has a pretty good discussion on the topic, and could also be contrived as documentation of unconventional materials. Chucky

  5. So as not to be outdone by all the redneck, hillbilly, and Texan jokes, you know you're from California if: 1. Your coworker has 8 body piercings and none are visible. 2. You make over $300,000/year and still can't afford a house. 3. You take a bus and are shocked at two people carrying on a conversation in English. 4. Your child's 3rd-grade teacher has purple hair, a nose ring, and is named Flower. 5. You can't remember . . is pot illegal? 6. You've been to a baby shower that has two mothers and a sperm donor. 7. You have a very strong opinion about where your coffee beans are grown, and you can so taste the difference between Sumatran and Ethiopian. 8. You can't remember . . . is pot illegal? 9. A really great parking space can totally move you to tears. 10. Gas costs $1.00 per gallon more than anywhere else in the U.S. 11. Unlike back home, the guy at 8:30 am at Starbucks wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses who looks like George Clooney really IS George Clooney. 12. Your car insurance costs as much as your house payment. 13. You can't remember . . . is pot illegal? 14. It's barely sprinkling rain and there's a report on every news station: "STORM WATCH." 15. You pass an elementary school playground and the children are all busy with their cells or pagers. 16. It's barely sprinkling rain outside, so you leave for work an hour early to avoid all the weather-related accidents. 17. HEY!!!! Is pot illegal???? 18. Both you AND your dog have therapists. 19. The Terminator is your governor. 20. If you drive illegally, they take your driver's license. If you're here illegally, they want to give you one.
  6. Flies received today! Great job everyone. Thanks Mako for meistering this side of the pond. Hey Johnny, I also got the International Reply Coupons back with my package. Did Canada Post not take them??? Let me know how to get a few dollars to you for the postage. Chucky
  7. Civil Engineer... I used to work for a Pre-Engineered Metal Building Manufacturer until the owner made some very poor decisions and bankrupted the company. Now I work freelance from home doing building design for other metal building companies. Thank goodness for the internet and UPS!!!

    Hmmm... The other family one is where the man and woman go to a psychologist... He asks them to each describe their perfect day.... She describes the family taking the Durango on a picnic in some wildflowers and quality time.... He describes taking the Durango pulling a boat, the Hemi kicking butt and then we fish... The psychologist says "Ah you're not riding in the same vehicle" They leave the office both claiming the psych is a quack...
  10. Either way...at least it's an interesting forum topic!
  11. I voted nymphs...but more specific would be soft hackles.... then mayfly dries...
  12. The Little Missouri in SW Arkansas....just because it's the first place I caught a fish on a fly. One of these days I'd like to make a trip to some of the real trout waters in the west and north....
  13. Howdy Joe.... Lots of good info here!!
  14. I would start with a Clouser....any color as long as it's chartreuse... The fluff butt is good for panfish If it's warmwater, I would highly recommend Tom Nixon's book. Fly Tying and Fly Fishing for Bass and Panfish. Chucky
  15. QUOTE (ArkieFlyGuy @ Apr 29 2005, 02:10 PM) Hmmmm.... and Aggie who likes Waylon..... Ain't that like a fly fisherman that likes to catch fish?.. sort of a requirement? .... kind of..... Heh.... but you wont find many that like Waylon and NOFX. Betcha never thought you'd see those in the same sentence.....
  16. Hmmmm....so many to choose from Pretty much any rock from the 50's-70's Hank Waylon Willie SRV Fabulous Thunderbirds NOFX Wagner Eagles Gotta have some Jimmy Buffet Oh and cant forget Jeff Guerin Pretty much anything but rap...and I've listened to some of that also.... Chucky
  17. Not much happening here this weekend....probably take in the weekend baseball series between Oklahoma State and the Aggies....
  18. Wow.... all that from a couple of pics. The second one I thought looked the most similar to what I have called the march browns where I fish. Although I would say the ones I have seen looked a lot more pale or reddish colored. Which I guess may be the light of the picture or just the local variation. Next time I get to go fishing, I really need to look a lot closer at the bugs... Thanks Taxon!!! Chucky

    QUOTE (davidmac @ Apr 26 2005, 12:53 PM) Thats a good one too. Have you seen the Dodge Derango add for the Hemi? I had to rewind and play back about 50 times. A family buys a Durango ,mom says to baby see all the saftey stuff..... the smooth ride..... cool air .....radio......they get home,mom goes in house dad pops open hood and tells son "all you have to know is Hemi,can you say Hemi' Ive only seen it once. They show those Hemi commercials down here (Texas) all the time... Both the ones with the family and the other ones with the 2 goobers in the old barracuda. They were funny the first couple of hundred times....
  20. I guess we need another version of the DFPF (Dog Food Pellet Fly).
