  1. Hey Bob, did you happen to snag any pics of the submitted ties? I've been wanting to see what everyone sent in


    Rogue, I talked to Bob this afternoon and offered to take some pix. It's not a state-of-the-art studio, but I have a lightbox with a macro setup on my camera. I can shoot pix of the flies and post them. Only drawback is, it'll have to be after Christmas.


    Ho, ho, ho, and Merry Christmas!



  2. A "Go Fund Me" site has been opened to help Ross with medical expenses. You can see a few pictures of him and of what's left of his car. Ross had $14.00 to his name when he started this new job, now he is looking at months of rehab and recovery. At this Thanksgiving please give if you can.



    What Bob said. Ross is a straight-up guy, a fly tying "freak," and amazing brother. If you can, please reach out.

  3. Ok now it's Chinese food. Bad enough when you two old rattlers would go for sushi without me, now it's Chinese. There will be a piece of coal in the toe of your stocking this Xmas.


    Hey we had some boxed up and ready to send to you, but for some reason the post office wasn't allowing it. ;-)

  4. Guys, I tell you what. The Humpy has always been a hard fly for me to tie. And small flies are hard as well. I have tried tying the Humpy with limited success. I can turn one out that will do in a rush, but that's it. So, when I get a set of 12 Humpies, SMALL ones, to boot, and they look like they came out of a Humpy MACHINE....! Well, all I can say is TRIPLE Wow! (A double wow isn't good enough.) Jburge has offered a very welcome addition to this set of flies, and you guys are going to love seeing this one. Thanks Jburge, and many thanks for the extras. I really appreciate them.


    Take Care




    Ha! Too funny. And, my pleasure. Glad you like 'em. Don't know why, but I've had more success with red than with any other color.

  5. A lot of your standard attractor patterns work well--at least in our Sierra mountains, and I've fished up to 11,000 ft. Royal Wulff, Elk Hair Caddis, Adams, and Stimulator, if you're going for the top. Subsurface, Pheasant Tail nymph, Copper John, Bird's Nest, Gold Ribbed Hare's Ear, and soft hackles are all fish catchers. Have fun, and enjoy the view. Trout don't live in ugly places :-)

  6. Being fortunate enough to live down the road (literally) from fishybob, I had the good fortune of sharing lunch today and picking up a great set of flies. You all are really going to like them. A lot of work went into these little beauties. Kudos to tiers, and huge thanks to Bob for hosting!
