    In the Driftless part of Wisconsin, they color them pink. Thanks, Bob H
  2. Norm, Outstanding work as always. Is the Steelhead Fly Tying Manual the 1979 one by Tom Light and Neal Humphrey? or...? Thanks, Bob H
  3. Great job! Hope to see more. Thanks, Bob H
  4. Gentlemen, Thanks so much for your detailed responses. If I understand correctly, you don't remove any part of the center stems? Do you lie the feathers flat when starting to tie in, or set on edges (like quill slips)? Again, thanks very much for your responses. Bob H
  5. Norm, Excellent work as always. Could you please share your technique for mounting the wings while keeping the head small and the tips perfectly aligned. Thanks, Bob H
  6. If it's important to you, Eagle Claw is one of very few, if any, American made hooks. Thanks, Bob H
  7. That was pretty interesting. Especially the part about being inspired by natural materials. Thanks for posting. Bob H
  8. Also wondering about Kimo, Scott P, Craigack, Bazzer? Thanks, Bob H
  9. The goose shoulder that I have (Hareline) has wispy fiber tips on the bottom 2/3 of the length of the feather, leaving only the top 1/3 to use when tying. Is the McLain (or any other brand) different in this regard; in other words is the entire feather usable (other than the bottom fluff)? If the entire feather is usable, then they are probably worth the premium price. Also, the shoulder feathers that I have appear to be mirrored right and left on each feather. But, when I try to match slips from each side of the same feather for marrying, it doesn't work and I have to use what appear to be a right and left feather to get them to marry. Is that always the case? Thanks, Bob H
  10. CP How do you like the M&P EZ 9mm? Are the slide and magazine as easy to use as they advertise? Wish they had a larger mag. Thanks, Bob H

    A real watch.

    I have my dad's gold Longines Automatic from 1958. I have worn it virtually every day since he passed in 1967. But, no, I don't wear it when fishing or on vacation. Thanks, Bob H
  12. What nm light is best for fly tying uv resins? I want to get a new rechargeable light, and have mainly Solarez resins on hand. If I run out, I would probably switch to Silver Creek. Thanks,, Bob H
  13. I am wondering what, if any, experience the folks here have with either, or ideally, both of these tools. They both seem to offer the ability to hold the loop open at the bottom, which is a feature that I'm looking to use. I've seen reviews by Fly Fish Food, Cast by John, Spawn FF. Cheech reviewed the Smhaen after he reviewed the Swiss tool, but gives no definitive comparison. So what have you folks experienced? Thanks, Bob H
  14. Flyjake, Thanks for the elaboration. You offer some factors that I hadn't considered; especially the public access feature. Thanks, Bob H
  15. How would this be better than just saving links to the individual demos in Favorites ? Thanks, Bob H
