  1. Hey Jarrod thats a great tutorial, maybe you could try an extended body eastern brown, grey or green drake, I have been messin with these but cant seen to get them right. I have been trying to tye them on tiemco 500U #16's. ANything you can do would be great.


  2. I had to patch my neo's and I have one word "GOOP". This stuff is great and its really flexible and strong. No need for patch or anything just smear it over the hole with a popsicle stick in thin layers. I even use it to patch my chainsaw cutting pants for work and they end up twice as strong. About 7 or 8 bucks a tube.


  3. Great thanks RJ.

     

    Well I just got back from the post office and things didnt go as smooth as I hoped. First, anyone that sent a SASE with American stamps, they werent worth the paper they were printed on. Canada Post only accepts Canadian postage stamps, for postage. For anyone participating in Canadian hosted swaps, you should use the universal postage coupons as a couple guys did, for return postage. Second, any containers over 23mm (not sure of the conversion) had to be sent at a more expensive rate. If it was over 23mm, it cost around $4CAN and if it was under in was $1.70CAN. So anyway I covered all the costs (about $13CAN plus all the universal postage coupons I had received (6x $1.75US, I hope you guys dont mind me using them), hoping the favour would be returned one day if need be. I hope everyone enjoys their flies, I certainly will.

     

    PS- If you did put stamps on an envelope they could still be good to use if you can get them off.


  4. headbang.gif Ok all the flies are in I am going to the post office right now to mail them. Again I would like to thank everyone for their participation in this swap which resulted in great batch of flies. You all should have them shortly. I would also like to thank everyone who included extra flies for me to enjoy, now I really need some new fly boxes!

     

    Ladies and gentlemen this concludes the Great Lakes Steelhead Swap!


  5. I was kinda hopin the length would still give enough control, I am getting a pretty sweet deal on it (private sale). I have a 7 weight but its only 8'6". I tend to like the longer rods for nymphing and such. Thanks for the advice though maybe Ill just wait for another one to come along.


  6. I am purchasing a Sage DS2 9'6" 5 weight, has anybody here owned one, this will be my first major rod/reel purchase and would like to hear some opinions. I also need to select a modest priced reel, I was wanting a large arbour, any suggestions? Hope to use it for steelhead this spring.


  7. Ok only one more package to come in I received WCoutfitter's flies today they look great. I hope they come tomorrow! BTW do any of us have a camera that they could take a picture of their received flies and post it, I think all the flies are great and we should show em off a bit! headbang.gif
