  1. Great tie SB. Really like the looks of that fly from the bottom, will be tying some of them up. I have to agree on the hackle from Charlie Collins they have some amazing colors.
  2. Great looking fly flytire, I have really good luck with the Royal Wulff's here in the east on brookies. This looks a little bit easier to tie have to give it a try.
  3. Nope never. Have to agree with perchjerker.
  4. Simms river sheds, studded, able to go anywhere I want to go and in any season.

  10. flytire that lead wire chart is very good info to have on a beginners desk,or anybody's desk for that matter, thanks for posting.
  11. Rockworm, I'm thinking you need natural skins for your applications. I think the the natural oils are removed in the tanning process for fur coats and such.
  12. Kodiaksalmon there must be half a chicken tied in those flies Great looking flies, and i'd have to agree with Arkman you should do a SBS on those flies.

  14. Welcome home from southern NY and thank you for serving.This is the place to look for advice, and fly patterns.
  15. I have fished quite a few of those little streams in southern NY,for a fish that is so sensitive to the environment,it always amazes me, as afishn stated,that they are there year after year.
  16. Mustads all the way, J Stockard has a wide selection of them in any size I need.
  17. Id have to say that I will try tying one or two flies of a new pattern if it looks like it might work on my local stream, as long as i have the materials already or able to sub different materials.
  18. I use two ceramic tiemcos and one ceramic dr slick with no complaints.
  19. I have one just like the one flytire posted in the video, you can make your own or do a search on ebay thats were i got mine.
