  1. 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.
  2. Hello, I am looking for bulk sinking line material to make different lengths of tips. Any suggestion? Bullhead
  3. Check this out. The finest leg material and color selection that I have seen and used. Fly Tying Materials | Fly Tying Recipes | Fly Tying Supplies | Fly Tyers Dungeon | Fly Tying Supplies
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Anyone else see UV resin smoke briefly when hit with the torch? I am using Solarrez and Ultrafire torch.
  7. Minus 32 degrees, not wind chill parts of central Mn. below zero for highs all week.
  8. Fytire, I have seen this before. Have you used it?
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. Perhaps raising or lowering your seat to a comfortable height might help. I use an armless office type chair.
  12. Flytire, fingers occasionally in the way when holding fibers in position on large pike flies. Not a habit
  13. 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
  14. Poopdeck, you mentioned using Melita brown filter. Is that any different than the Melita white? I am building the same system as you described
  15. 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?
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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?
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. Well I epoxied the tip, aligned and set to cure. It settled and alignment is off. How can I remove to redo without destroying the blank? Bullhead
  22. Hi All, I have just about finished with my first fly rod build. Perhaps this is a silly question but what do you use to create a glossy finish on the entire rod? and what is the difference between thread sealer and epoxy for the guides? Bullhead
  23. Thanks to both of you! As I wade for in the reeds for panfish it is nice to have a quick retrieve of slack line to keep from tangling around debris. Now to take apart to clean and lubricate.
  24. Geetings all, On a whim, I picked up two of these for three bucks each at a local pawn shop. Number 1140 model C. Can anyone tell me how they function? In particular the side knurled knob on one side of the reel? Bullhead
