  1. Seems to me if you are going to be a fly tyer then you need to be able to tie a Catskill style dry. I'd start with a Wullf style hairwing. Kip is cheeper to screw up than wood duck. JMHO
  2. Fine book. I bought it way back when it 1st came out. Haven't opened it in years.
  3. Yup been there once. Bit of a drive from here. Mail ordered a few times too.
  4. Or you can buy the whole hackle farm. http://theriaultflies.com/chickenhackle.html
  5. Gotta disagree. Get a rotary, learn to use it, and you will never go back to fixed. Makes many tasks much easier. JMHO UMMV
  6. Matte white paper in an old picture frame.
  7. https://smile.amazon.com/SOLAREZ-Fly-Tie-Cure-Resin/dp/B00FL067UG/ref=sr_1_16?crid=NI5IEQOVJX9B&dchild=1&keywords=solarez+uv+cure+resin&qid=1589290650&sprefix=solare%2Caps%2C205&sr=8-16 Until I figure out which one I use most.
  8. Beaver, whitetail, black bear, duck and partridge are what I have in stuff that was harvested by friends. Borax and salt will cure anything. Just be sure you are vermin free before you put with your other stuff. I whine and beg for wood duck to all my friends come the season. A prime male woody will make a tier smile for months.

    Once again Mr. Roy has ties a winner from waaaay outside the box. Strong work sir. :headbang:

  13. Calf tail is also called kip. Same thing.
