  1. I'm in for one FTF and one Hatches, both in XXL, both Indigo. 16+16+3 = $35 Eben
  2. Blue, not a peep! Evan, excellent point, and no, I ain't! Deek, no slots, just screw holes in the base for the two attached pieces. Urb
  3. Well, as an owner of a bunch of nice knives, (And a chef by trade), I have NO idea why one would need such a thing, but that pic IS IT! Funnier than hell in any event! Urb
  4. To me, FKs suggestion seems most likely... E
  5. Ha! I love it, and I'm pleased nobody else knows what the damn thing is either! ;-) Urb
  6. Yeah, E, kinda thinkin' the same, but my visual ain't clickin' yet... Urb
  7. OK Gang, Monica found this, brought it home and asked if I can use it - I have zero idea what it is - So... What IS IT? urb
  8. Yep, since '05! Anyway, I'm Eben, from north Texas, and while I've been away, this site has quietly stayed in touch and I finally go the reappear clue - Couldn't believe it'd been five years, but it had... Anyway, howdy again! E
  9. I dunno, Cone - I kinda like yours, too - Now to figure out where I could get away with that... Convert the home office? Take space out of the guitar workshop? Send the 14 yr old away to school? Eben

    QUOTE (conehead @ Mar 10 2005, 01:47 PM) Actually the smaller you go the easier and faster it is. I use a 2 1/2 x magnifying lens and light. 1. 4 turns of thread, add fibers for a tail 2. A thread body with a hi-vis post 3. Then tie in the butt end of a #32 hackle 4. Two circles around the post, whip finish and your done I use a lot of 22-32 midges here in south-central PA, and found that after you get the hang of it, you tie them faster and with less cost (less material) than any other fly. For #24-32, I use a 8x tippet, no problem. Hint: If your eyes are old and weak, tie the tippet on the fly at the bench Conehead Just can't seem to find cones to fit those #32s Thanks, Cone - Went off to my local Office Depot and found a nice magnifier light for $14.00 - Works great!! Much easier on my poor ol' eyes! Eben

    I'll check that out, thanks! She hunts, too - and cleans her own birds! But most imortantly, she lets me borrow her Sage 4 weight! Eben
  12. You know, that's kinda where my mind ran on it - but I did tie a half dozen Adams with her, and I'll throw some floatant on them and see! Eben
  13. Well, Heck - I'd be happy to build or design you one... I've done finish carpentry, cabinets, and guitars for quite a while now - I'd be happy to help you design, or whatever you need! Eben
