  1. I love the Nor-Vise with the midge jaw conversion Kit. I've got many other vises but, That's the one that I use the most. And it has a good warranty.
  2. I Love my Nor-Vise. I have several other brands but, I tye on it the most.
  3. I hope that they were barbless.... :bugeyes: good job maybe she'll get her classmates interested in tying now.
  4. If it's a decent sized swap 3-6. If it's a "specialty " swap with just a few people (12 or less) 6-12. Some swaps are a lot of work to organize and get everyones flys out. Then there are those that make you wait ( and wait ) for their flys.....
  5. That is reasonable if you feel that you got your monies worth certainly. I often get tips for my fly tying classes. But, then again I try to give somebody that's paying for knowledge 150%. That's what makes people come back.
  6. White body (feather or zonker strip) Red collar (Feather, cross cut rabbit, Polar bear, etc.) works great
  7. sounds like you need to either get a job or go out and buy another vise if you've already got a job.
  8. Why not just support your local fly shop? They probably have much more to offer you and without the corporate hoopla... What do you think you're going to have once all of the little guys shut their doors?
  9. If your going now, til JUNE Chironomids. june- july Mayflys, July 15-August15 Damsel Nymphs, Theres a good Caddis hatch during this period too. You might find the flies that your looking for at the shop in Lone Butte. Of Course all of my favorite patterns are tyed using Liquid Lace.
  10. That's a great site Ray, Thanks for sharing!
  11. My first choice is the Liquid Lace Chironomid tyed with the gold lace and secondly the Liquid Lace Damsel because it is a summer fly.
  12. Have you tried Chuckar or partridge?
  13. If I have barbed hooks that I'm going to fish , I pinch otherwise like " Willied" said, buy barbless.
