    I'm lazy.............I've always used tapered and just carried some spools of tippet material with me.........I've always wanted to try tying my own someday......let us know how it goes........maybe it will motivate me to try.

  10. welcome aboard.............our lakes are just now starting to skim over (SW Ohio). We need another deep freeze week so I can get out on the ice.

  12. I saw it this morning.........good show........my type of fishing, low pressure, nice and relaxing and no one else around......except for his camera crew of course. Flip came up to ohio last summer and filmed an episode near Zaneville with the Mad River Outfitters fly shop out of Columbus which i am anxious to see, he doesn't have the air date on his website yet. flip is supposed to return to Ohio this summer to film an episode on carp fishing.

    Yeah, i saw that to..........he 's a POS........acted like an @$$ the whole show........he broke off atleast 3 fish that I saw using a 7x tippet and his partner kept trying to get him to change, but he wouldn't listen......not the kind of guide i would want........
  14. GHow, There was a time when i would have gone to a game under those conditions.........nowadays..........the place for me to watch games played under those conditions is in front of my tv........except last night, i watched it from in front of a buddies tv........
  15. Looks good...........
  16. I think I found the design i am going to stick with........for now........bear with me, I don't have a working digital camera(probably just as well....I'm all thumbs). I tied it in the fashion of a "madam X". I first tied in a black deer hair tail, then an orange deer hair wing/head(bullet style)not pulled back yet though, black chenille body wrapped forward from the tail to the base of where my head will be tied off, then 6-8 strands of crystal flash as an underwing. I then pulled back my orange deerhair wing/head and tied it off. tied in orange elastic legs at the base of the head (like the madam X) and then went back w/a black marker and colored the orange deerhair head black leaving orange "eyes" on the side of the head. I believe the original madam x called for fur dubbing as an underbody, but i had a surplus of balck chenille so i have been using that during my experimentation. Mike
  17. I woke up to late this morning and missed it, but it's on again tomorrow at 0900 on ESPN2. Flip rides his Harley up to S. Carolina for some Bass/Blue Gill fishing on the old fly Rod..........I think i can be up by 0900, but then again, it is Saturday night.........maybe i should set the recorder........
  18. Welcome aboard..............a northerner transplanted in Ky..........Does that mean your from Ohio?......J/K........
  19. A Big Hello from Dayton, Ohio (the Mecca of midwest Flyfishing in case you weren't aware of that) Welcome to the site! Please feel free to include some photos of some of your blond haired, blue eyed "Viking Women".......... modeling some of your Salmon flys of course. Mike
  20. Hey SH, That looks pretty good........far better than anything I have come up with......It is definitly more durable. That wing material should give you a lot of flash, I like that. At first i was going to suggest putting a big orange spot on the back for better visibility in low light, but those wings should be easy to spot. Just curious, what size hook are you using and how long is your body? I believe in another thread, you mentioned these buggers were 1 1/2" long? Mike
