  1. I’ve only started using kapok recently, but I like it quite a bit. It is very easy to dub with. When it comes to floating a dry fly, I use all the help I can get. Starting with the right choice of material, I like treat the flies with Water Shed after they come off the vise, then apply Loon Aquel floatant at the stream.
  2. Hi Kim, I believe you have received my flies, but it’s not shown as such in the list. :)
  3. No, not really. I just drop it in a bin meant for leaving packages after hours. How could that bin even exist if you had to make a declaration for every package?
  4. This rule is news to me. I’ve shipped many packages by dropping them in a bin at the post office. I never had to make a declaration of any kind.

  6. Thanks Kim. I’m going with Warden’s Worry.
  7. Agreed. I’ve had no trouble with JStockard, and was going to place my order with them, except that I needed a couple of items that they didn’t stock.
  8. I’m in! Pattern to be chosen later.
  9. Has anybody experienced difficulties in getting online fly tying materials orders filled? I made orders to two different suppliers over two weeks ago. The order status on both of these show up as “processing”. One of the suppliers called a couple of days after I placed the order and told me that of the six items in my order, only one of them was not on back order. Kind of pathetic, I think. Their website software should have told me that when I placed the order.
  10. Anybody have a model number for a 2X short dry fly hook? Equivalent to a Mustad 94838.
  11. The only scraps I save are wood duck. I use the leftover fibers for tails and wing cases on nymphs. There’s a dry fly I tie called The Spirit of Pittsford Mills. It uses the downy fluff from a wood duck feather, so I keep the scraps for that fly as well. I just put the scraps in a small ziplock bag.
