  11. thanks mike. exactly what i needed.
  12. I am coming home from college and my parents are giving me a bed room downstairs for my fly tying. I already have a desk i have re-finished over thanksgiving break. I was hoping to get some pictures of your desks and how you organize for some ideas. Thanks, tmatt26
  13. It's been a while since I've been on here due to college and all. I am going to get a chance to go on a fishing trip during spring break. I was hoping to get some trout fishing in. I was thinking about heading down to gatlinburg, TN or to the Cumberland river in Kentucky. Just wondering which would be the better bet as far as productivity and fishing pressure. Also i need as many fly patterns as possible so that i can start preparing. Thanks guys, greatly appreciated.
  14. olive woolly bugger and an orange dave's hopper imitation. always have worked well for me.
  15. i can tie flies just fine all the way down to size 16 but anything smaller than that i have problems with the hackle being too long, things bunching up. just wondering if you all use magnification lenses or a special hackle. thanks.
  16. looks just fine to me. as long as it looks like that i'd keep using it.
  17. few deer hair bugs and an attempt at a stimulator. what do you all think?

  20. ok i know this section is for bugs but i catch these little fish all the time and dont know what it is.
