  1. Thanks for the information. I will experiment with 6, 8 and 10 pound mono and fluor. 90 percent of my fishing is for river smallmouth with poppers, Clousers and large streamers Bullhead
  2. Hello, I am using Kathy Scott's video for furling. I am looking for the pound test mono or fluor to use. I am throwing 7 and 8 wt lines. Thanks Bullhead
  3. Hello, A little information , please. I recently purchased Wulff "Ambush" 9W and was wondering if I can attach a lead core section to the end. I will be fishing for bass and pike in lakes. What are your suggestions on how to attach and the length of the leader? Any other tips will be appreciated. Bullhead
  4. Hi, I have trouble with this product as it is so thick it does not sqeeze out of needle applicator. Is there a way of thinning this out? Bullhead
  5. Hi All, Anyone use Kold Kutter cleats for slippery rocks. Simms brand are to spendy for me. I have tried size 8 sheet metal screws and was not satisfied with them. Bullhead.
  6. The LC 13 looks like the ticket. Any suggestion on length? I am using the Wulff Ambush shooting head nine weight on a 9W rod for smallmouth bass in fast water.
  7. Hello, I am looking for bulk sinking line material to make different lengths of tips. Any suggestion? Bullhead

  9. Hello, Looking at cutting popper heads out of flip flop sandals. Have any of you built a jig to cut consistent bodies? similar to to the Zudbubbler body. Cheers
  10. I like casting lead on hooks and tying bucktail jigs. I have some number 9 lead shot i would like to use up. i believe it is an alloy. Will this sub for 100% lead or is it too hard? Cheers Bullhead
  11. Anyone else see UV resin smoke briefly when hit with the torch? I am using Solarrez and Ultrafire torch.
  12. Minus 32 degrees, not wind chill parts of central Mn. below zero for highs all week.
  13. Fytire, I have seen this before. Have you used it?
  14. Hello. I would like to experiment air brushing poppers using sharpie or copic markers but do not want to make a huge investment. Is there a pen holder system that anyone with experience can suggest? Bullhead
  15. Can anyone suggest an equivalent substitute for this material. I see fly patterns that include this quite often., What about Fly Tiers Dungeon products? Thanks
  16. Perhaps raising or lowering your seat to a comfortable height might help. I use an armless office type chair.
  17. Flytire, fingers occasionally in the way when holding fibers in position on large pike flies. Not a habit
  18. DoI need to be wary of these rays to my skin? I use the Ultra Fire 502UV and my fingers get warm when close to the light. By the way the resin cures nice and hard, no tackiness. Bullhead
  19. Poopdeck, you mentioned using Melita brown filter. Is that any different than the Melita white? I am building the same system as you described
  20. What is your preference for fishing river Bass with a 7 or 8 wt line? I have been using one for several years but they seem to pick up an off color after a while. Making it quite obvious to me and perhaps the fish. Any good recipes for mono or flouro hand tied leaders?
  21. I cringe when people hold largemouth bass horizontal by the lower lip. Must take a while for the fish to put its jaw back where it is suppose to be.
  22. Consider using Gator blades. Been using on college campus for years. https://www.oregonproducts.com/en/professional-products/lawn-and-garden/mower-blades/gator-mulching-blades/c/g6-mulchingblade-p Bullhead
  23. I like this version. I tried other assembly methods, filter material etc. but had poor results. With your filter material do you get an even flow of air around the powder?
  24. I have used small pieces of "No Pest Strip" placed inside a pill container with small holes drilled in it . Placed inside of plastic storage container with material
  25. Yeah Mike I am somewhat of a perfectionistt. It was off a little bit. I tweaked the running eyes just a smidge and all is well. Thanks to all. Bullhead
